Communicating nationally through a holistic approach

Sodexo Australia

“I can rely on Elevate Communication for anything because they’ve got the capabilities. The CEO of our organisation’s Australia branch says that Elevate Communication is fantastic. The feedback on them has been brilliant, so we want more. Even if you’re a multinational company, don’t think you have to go to a large agency to get the best PR and communications support. Boutique agencies give you time and dedication, and they invest in understanding your business in a way that larger agencies often do not.”

Problem

Following its acquisition of Morris Corporation, Sodexo needed a team to support its national communications efforts: building brand awareness in the Australian market, communicating to the company’s employee base of more than 5,000 workers, highlighting its extensive corporate social responsibility work, and coordinating Sodexo’s annual Focus on Growth Conference.

Solution

Elevate has ingrained itself as an extension of Sodexo’s Brand & Communications Team, working with company leaders, stakeholders and partners to execute a holistic communication program, incorporating owned, earned and paid channels. Activity includes an integrated mix of traditional public relations, corporate communications, issues management, digital marketing and advertising, and event management.

Result

Development and design of six quarterly employee magazines, 10+ award submissions announced as finalists in their category. Elevate has also secured regular media coverage across a suite of relevant trade publications, including the copywriting of regular industry trends and thought leadership pieces and publications and have coordinated three Sodexo ‘Focus on Growth’ Conferences.
