CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 09/14/12 -- The Plan Sponsor Council of America (PSCA) announced the winners of its annual Signature Awards during a special presentation at its 65th Annual National Conference at The Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans.
"The PSCA Signature Awards recognize excellence in plan sponsor and participant communication and education," said Robert Benish, PSCA's Executive Director. "The plan sponsors and providers that we recognize today produced strategies and programs that delivered results to their employees to help them save more effectively for retirement. These companies offer innovative approaches and creative vision to break through the clutter to engage their employees to take action and positively change behavior to participate, to increase their deferral or to diversify their investments."
In 2012, the Signature Awards judges recognized 44 winners in 16 categories. A distinguished judging panel of business leaders and communication experts chose the 2012 winners on how companies write, design, manage, and deliver defined contribution communication and investment education to plan participants and plan sponsors. Signature Awards judges carefully review the metrics to analyze how effective the campaign was at achieving its goals.
The winners of the 2012 Signature Awards were celebrated at an evening reception, sponsored by Russell Investments. The winners are also featured in the 2012 Signature Awards Magazine, an annual publication that describes the details of the winning entries and their successful results. The Signature Awards Magazine is used by industry experts to increase the quality of defined contribution education and communication at hundreds of other plan sponsor companies.
