Awards season 2017 is upon us, and there’s extra excitement within the Gazprom Energy camp this year, as we’ve been shortlisted for three prestigious business awards.
Earlier this month, we attended the British Small Business Awards where we were nominated for Utilities Provider of the Year. We narrowly missed out, but it was fantastic to be recognised for our customer service improvements such as paperless billing. Still, our collective fingers are crossed for the trio of awards we’ve been shortlisted for over the coming weeks.
First up, we head to the UK Digital Experience Awards at Wembley Stadium on 22 November, where we’re nominated for the Best Use of SEO, against Three UK and Virgin Money.
After implementing technical and aesthetic changes across our digital platforms, we were able to create a more intuitive and streamlined website experience for visitors. This has helped us demonstrate our innovative, forward-thinking approach to business energy management, and enabled us to offer even greater support to all our customers.
After this, we’ll be attending the UK Search Awards, at South Bank’s Ballroom on 30 November, where we’ve been shortlisted for the Best Use of Search (B2B). Clearly, our hard work in digital marketing has been recognised, and this nomination is a great reward for our ever-improving performance.
Finally, is the most prestigious award that we’re nominated for - Supplier of the Year at the Energy Awards 2017, taking place on 6 December. We’re hoping to win it again after we scooped it in 2015, but as always we’ve got some stiff competition.
When applying for the award, we were able to point to our implementation of InSight – our new energy management tool that allows for flexible energy purchasing – as well as self-service portal for gas customers, invoice templates and our online quote tool.
Our Head of Marketing and Communications, Yvonne Henderson, noted: “We’ve got a busy awards season because we’ve had a busy year! We’ve implemented a number of amazing projects across Gazprom Energy – those mentioned above but so many more too - and a lot of work has gone into delivering these from teams across the business.
“We’re really hoping that all the hard work pays off and we can come away with some silver for the trophy cabinet!”
Here’s hoping we do. We’re truly proud of the recognition we’ve gotten through these award nominations, so if we’re able to walk away with a clutch of trophies, we’ll make it our New Year’s Resolution to go even further in 2018.
