The annual Awards for Excellence provide a platform to celebrate the work of Sirona care & health’s 3,500 staff. With COVID-19 restrictions limiting the possibility of an in-person event, Sirona approached us to see how we could create an accessible virtual awards experience that would bring employees together, celebrate success and share achievements.
Moving an existing award ceremony online needs careful management – even without a global pandemic. Before any work was done on technical production we explored the essential components of the awards experience. These are subtly different for each award show, but in this case they were to share stories, to celebrate and connect. These three pillars became the guiding principles for the event design.
Working in partnership with the Sirona communications team and senior management we developed a show that would feel familiar, albeit delivered in an entirely new format.
