BOSTON – CDM Smith was awarded two top prizes at the Society for Marketing Professional Services Boston Chapter’s 2024 annual awards gala. The firm’s marketing and communications group won first place in the Internal Communications category for the Onboarding On-ramp program, and the team also took home first place in the Video category for the Innovators Interview Series. Both categories in which the firm submitted received top honors. The SMPS awards are presented to the firms and individuals who made the most distinguished contributions in the marketing realm for the Boston-area architecture, engineering and construction industry in 2023-2024.  

first place: onboarding on-ramp program

CDM Smith's Onboarding On-ramp provides a comprehensive and consistent onboarding experience, delivering the right information at the right time while sparking desired action and excitement. It has three components tied together with distinct program branding: a New Employee intranet portal, a guided learning pathway developed on our learning platform, Degreed, and an automated email campaign delivered to new employees and their managers over their 90-day onboarding period to ensure they are on track. This program is also a contender for the upcoming SMPS National Awards ceremony.

first place: innovators series

The Innovators Series is a collection of short, informative, and compelling interviews with brilliant experts across dynamic markets answering our clients' most pressing questions. In the modern world, challenges constantly arise to protecting the environment and building strong, resilient infra­struc­ture. This series commu­ni­cates how these challenges are being solved by the experts who are taking them on, guiding clients through uncertainty and forging a path towards a more promising future.

“I continue to be amazed at how the work we are doing, in partnership with our colleagues across the firm, is so incredibly differ­en­ti­at­ing, creative, and impactful compared to some pretty stiff competition,” says Julia Forgas, Chief Marketing and Commu­ni­ca­tions Officer. “Thank you to everyone who contributes to our efforts and puts up with being interviewed, taped, photographed, and asked to provide subject matter expertise. We could not do it without you!”
