YODEL SCOOPS IOIC NATIONAL AWARD FOR FIRST CLASS NEWSLETTER

Published by:

Your Call, the employee magazine for Yodel, the UK’s leading parcel delivery company, has been named class winner in the newsletter category at the Institute of Internal Communications (IoIC) National Awards. The award was presented to the Yodel team by former GMTV presenter Fiona Phillips at a ceremony at London’s Hilton Park Lane on Friday, June 15.

The IoIC judges described Your Call as “a small, but beautifully formed, publication. Everything looks like it’s in the right place and the content is targeted at the workforce. There’s a welcome balance between people and policy and many much bigger corporate publications would do well to follow its example. There are some fun features too, which adds to the readers’ enjoyment.”

Your Call, designed for Yodel by Pages Creative, was launched to help create a sense of unity in a new company made up of two businesses, following the acquisition of DHL Domestic by Home Delivery Network – it was therefore important for the magazine to create a sense of community and shared values across all employees. Since its launch in December 2010, Your Call has won a number of IoIC awards at both national and regional level.

Richard Wells, HR Director for Yodel, said: “We are extremely proud to receive this latest recognition for our employee magazine, which is further credit to the hard work of the teams within Yodel and Pages Creative. Your Call is an essential publication that goes to all our employees, many of whom are mobile and widely dispersed. It helps inform and drive engagement in all areas of the business.”

Mark Lawrence, a director at Pages Creative, added: “We’re really pleased that Your Call continues to be received positively by Yodel employees and the internal communications industry. Its success is based on telling the Yodel story through its employees – and many of them have been involved in suggesting content for the newsletter. Their commitment to the business shines through when you talk to them and the award for Your Call is a just reward for all their hard work.”

The writing of Your Call is shared by Yodel’s in-house team and Pages Creative, while the photography is a mix of commissioned work and supplied pictures, many of which were submitted by interviewees.

The Institute of Internal Communications’ Awards is the biggest of its kind in Europe. Your Call also won an Award of Excellence in the IoIC national awards in June 2011 and was a Class Winner in the newsletter category at the North Region Awards in September 2011.

OnTrac Teams Up With Waste Management in AB 341 Study

Published by:

OnTrac is proud to be a company that exercises environmental responsibility. Earlier this year, Monterey County’s Environmental Health Bureau and Waste Management audited the waste disposal procedures and trash in our Salinas facility. What they discovered was 90 percent of the discarded material was recyclable. As a result, OnTrac changed from a six-cubic-yard trash bin to a one-cubic-yard trash bin and a six-cubic-yard recycling bin. The switch netted a 76 percent savings, while diverting valuable recyclables from the landfills. Read the full press release below.

California Mandatory Commercial Recycling Law in Effect July 1

AB 341 sets 75 percent state-wide diversion goal by 2020

CASTROVILLE — June 27, 2012 – Beginning July 1, 2012, about 470,000 California businesses and apartments will be required to recycle according to AB 341(Chesbro), Mandatory Commercial Recycling. This includes all businesses that generate four cubic yards or more of commercial solid waste per week, and all multifamily residential dwellings with five units or more regardless of the amount of commercial solid waste generated.

“AB 341 is good for the environment and good for businesses,” said Teresa Rios, Management Analyst, Monterey County Health Department, Environmental Health Bureau.

The affected businesses represent approximately 20 percent of California’s 1.3 million businesses and are responsible for about 75 percent of the commercial waste in California according to the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery’s (CalRecycle) Web site. In Monterey County, commercial businesses generated nearly 34,000 tons of waste; 54 percent of the total waste in 2010.

AB 341 sets a statewide goal for 75 percent disposal reduction by 2020, and it requires local governments to inform businesses of the new Mandatory Commercial Recycling law. According to CalRecycle, the implementation of AB 341 will result in an estimated statewide average annual cost savings of $40 million-$60 million from 2012-2020.

To support businesses’ efforts and further increase diversion, Monterey County is working in close partnership with Waste Management and other agencies to provide:

» Free waste assessments to assist businesses to implement successful diversion plans

» Free education to employees on best diversion practices to ensure plans’ success

» Follow up visits to ensure diversion plan is successful and/or to provide additional technical assistance

Earlier this year, the County’s Environmental Health Bureau and Waste Management worked with OnTrac, an overnight package delivery company, to audit its waste disposal procedures and trash. What they discovered was 90 percent of the discarded material was recyclable. As a result, OnTrac changed from a six-cubic-yard trash bin to a one-cubic-yard trash bin and a six-cubic-yard recycling bin. The switch netted a 76 percent savings, while diverting valuable recyclables from the landfills.

“We pride ourselves on being a company that exercises environmental responsibility in shipping,” said Laura Peterson, Vice President of Marketing, OnTrac.

Recently, Pebble Beach was one of the first communities in the county to reach 100 percent compliance with the new law.

“Many of our commercial clients in Monterey County have shown an eagerness to reduce the cost of their waste and, more importantly, what goes into the landfills,” said Felipe Melchor, District Manager, Waste Management. “We look forward to helping the county achieve its diversion goals.”
