Usiminas has received the Award for Companies that Best Communicate with Journalists 2017, in the category of Steelmaking and Metallurgy. The award is promoted by the magazine “Negócios da Comunicação”, with the purpose of recognizing the work of companies in their relationship with the several press vehicles.
Usiminas Corporate Communications General Manager, Ana Gabriela Dias Cardoso, and Communication Coordinator, Paulo Assis, represented the company at the awards ceremony held in São Paulo. “This is the seventh year that Usiminas receives such recognition, certainly an important indication of the quality of work that the company has been doing. It is a pride for all the communication team to know that, even in the face of challenges, it is contributing to the strengthening of an open and transparent dialogue with all of society”, says Gabriela.
The choice of the winning companies from 31 sectors of the economy is made by a survey of around 25,000 journalists from all over Brazil. The professionals assess the treatment provided by the companies’ communication teams, the access and availability of information and the ease of data ascertainment. The contributions are reviewed by “H2R Pesquisas Avançadas” for the election of the winners and audited by British consultancy BDO Brazil.
