Thursday 10, December 2020

The mobile app created for EDP employees has been awarded with the 1st European prize in the category of best internal channel.

The winners of the European Excellence Awards 2020, an event that distinguishes annually, since 2007, the best projects and campaigns of Communication and Public Relations throughout Europe, are already known. EDP was awarded gold, in the category of best internal channel, with the edpON app.

Launched in April this year, the edpON app was created with the aim of offering the company's employees a simpler, more agile and interactive experience when using the company's various services - from vacation scheduling to absence management, expense registration and many others options. Until then, there were about 20 different applications, with different names, brands and visuals. These platforms are now brought together in a single application: the edpON app.

In the first six months, about 4.400 downloads (about 60% penetration rate) were made. With the availability of new features it is expected that this number will increase considerably. Since launch, there has been a 25% increase in intranet consumption in mobile accesses.

Other EDP projects also received the jury's attention when they were included in the short list of this year's European Excellence Awards. The Generation Zero (‘Geração Zero’) project of EDP Comercial, the Internal Communication in pandemic time and the EDP 2020 Meetings were distinguished.
