The Jostle Awards celebrate our customers and how they use their Jostle® intranets to create extraordinary organizations around the globe.
Congratulations to the 2017 winners and thank you to all nominees!
This year we celebrate extraordinary customers in eight categories. All but one category has two awards. Our All Star winners are customers who’ve proven their mettle year over year. Our Rising Star winners are customers off to a strong start in their Jostle journey.
This award recognizes the use of the Jostle intranet as a key component of an organizational strategy to create a connected and vibrant workplace.
Pure Resourcing Solutions Ltd.
“Jostle underpins our employee engagement strategy and is integral to all elements of our company culture. It supports our key values of team work, quality, innovation, reward, support, and delivering the best results.”
Gill BuchananChief Operating Officer
Kinzler Construction Services
“We needed more than a “go-to” place for important documents. Jostle functions as our employee newsletter, employee directory, and accountability chart. It’s also a great place to recognize and connect coworkers—not only individuals in the office, but also our field staff located all across the US.”
Jason MortvedtMarketing Director
Intranet Launch Strategy
We’re constantly amazed by the creativity of launch activities. This award celebrates the customer with the best launch plan and execution.
Red River Mutual
“What we want to do with Jostle is create a workspace culture; one that will change the way our employees connect with one another and encourage longevity in their careers here. Our launch campaign was designed around three phases: Anticipate, Welcome and Engage, and Embrace.”
Jennifer EwankiwDirector of Strategic Initiatives
This award recognizes a leader or leadership team that has best participated on their Jostle intranet to help support and achieve organizational goals.
“The firm as a whole has a better understanding of what is going on and what direction we want to go in. Partly because Jostle centralises all this information into a single place and makes it easy to consume but also partly because the management team have increased the volume of their communications now they have a simple channel to use.”
Paul DicksonChief Executive
“The business challenges we're solving with Jostle include aligning our employees with internal communication, culture, and document sharing. Our CEO and leadership team set the standard.”

Nurturing Workplace Culture
This award recognizes the skillful use of the Jostle intranet to reveal and enhance workplace culture through connection, recognition, and communication.
“At work, at home, or on the go on the mobile app–there are a lot of ways that everyone in our company can stay in touch and up to date through Jostle. This allows our employees to bond and get to know each other on a more personal level—which is critical for our workplace culture.”
Maxwell BennettOperations Manager
“Innisfree Hotels is centered around our company culture. Jostle has been the train that delivers that culture throughout the company. Our company culture is laid out in different virtues, and we use Jostle to educate employees and reinforce those virtues.”

Joe JakubowskiDirector of Technology
“There is a common passion within our team to drive innovation in a culture of true teamwork and collaboration. Jostle has enabled this to happen and has enabled the whole company to share their views, ideas, and successes on a daily basis.”
Therese HumeMarketing Manager
Extraordinary Internal Communications
Purposeful and creative communication leads to outstanding results. This award recognizes the customers whose actions and activities on their Jostle intranet have led to exemplary internal communication with a positive employee experience.
“The number one challenge Jostle solved since we launched in 2016 and continues to solve, is organizational-wide communication. As a result, Jostle has helped us literally and mentally evolve as a national organization.”
Kenneth WalkerSenior VP Core Mission Support
Bentley's Pet Stuff
“From our naming contest, which resulted in our naming Jostle 'Bark About It', it's become our one-stop-shop of communication for all teams across the country. From news to social interaction to policies and procedures to education. And most importantly, it’s everyone's daily stop to celebrate wins and share ideas across the country!”
This award recognizes customers that create and support bustling communities of people inside their organizations with their Jostle intranet.
“We are all about encouraging open communication and making sure that everyone in our company feels part of one whole team. Jostle is helping us by offering so many different ways to share updates or information across our 21 global offices.”
Sophia KlippvikExecutive & Marketing Assistant
District of Lake Country
“Prior to Jostle, our intranet was a one way tool for communication. Now we have a vibrant way to recognize staff, share critical information, and connect our diverse team. Not only does it keep our internal team informed, but it helps them be prepared for contact with the public too.”
Holly FlinkmanManager of HR and Health Sustainability
Aligning and motivating people through change is difficult. This award shines a light on customers that demonstrated how technology can help overcome challenges of organizational change.
“Over the past 5 years I've watched strangers become colleagues become friends. And I think that is in large part thanks to Jostle. This was especially true when our organization integrated with another and we had to on-board over 75+ employees. Jostle helped create a space where our new colleagues would feel welcome and part of the team right away.”
Amanda ConnollyCommunications Manager
“Our Jostle intranet—called The Grid—is a game changer for us. We can now share information across departments and from person to person. We’re connecting employees in corporate headquarters, district offices, and in the field. It’s been a steady climb and we’re excited to see it progressing so quickly.”
Chellie PhillipsVP of Communications and PR
