Lactalis Canada Wins IABC Gold Quill Award of Excellence


TORONTO — Lactalis Canada has received the prestigious International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Gold Quill Award of Excellence in the Special and Experiential Events category for the company’s inaugural Lactalis Canada #Connect 2021 all-employee virtual event. The company was recognized during the recent 2022 IABC World Conference in New York City.

Held in July, Lactalis Canada #Connect celebrated more than 4,000 of its office and hourly employees across 30 operating sites in Canada. The two-hour event featured content and speakers to inform and mobilize employees around the company’s goals, business strategy, purpose and achievements, as well as celebrate the company’s annual employee award winners. Lactalis Canada #Connect has now evolved into a yearly company-wide virtual event.

“It is an incredible honour to be recognized for excellence among the world’s best communicators with the Gold Quill Award which speaks to the work of our team who always set the bar high,” says Roopa Shah, director of Corporate Communications at Lactalis Canada. “During the height of the pandemic, we set out to bring our 4,000-plus team across the country together. We were able to successfully deliver on this goal through a specially curated virtual company-wide event that saw us re-imagine the traditional townhall and turn it into a truly new and innovative employee experience.”
