Gateway Corporate Communications Team Wins Silver Link Merit Award

TULSA, OKLA., October 11, 2022 –– Gateway First Bank was named the winner of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) Silver Link Award of Merit in the Internal Relations Campaign category for their 2022 Rock En’Roll Benefits Open Enrollment Campaign.

“The Gateway Corporate Communications team is a phenomenal partner to every department they support,” says Kevin Kennemer, Vice President of Human Resources. Each year Gateway’s open enrollment benefits campaign is the perfect mix of creative energy, eye-catching communications, and just plain fun. It’s no surprise that this talented team won a PRSA award for their internal communications efforts.”

While Gateway’s mission is to strengthen families and communities, the organization remains laser-focused on the team member experience, too. Kennemer says, “We believe open enrollment is a perfect opportunity to re-recruit team members and remind them why they chose Gateway as their “work” home. And the payoff has been phenomenal with an increase in participation and engagement from our team members across the organization. Effective internal communications are key to our success.”

PRSA Tulsa’s Silver Link Awards recognize exemplary public relations achievements in various categories, as well as honor public relations professionals for outstanding contributions to the profession.
