Boutique tech PR firm Bospar begins 2021 with distinction
SAN FRANCISCO—FEBRUARY 12, 2021—Bospar, the boutique PR firm that puts tech companies on the map, is a finalist for two Ragan’s Employee Communications Awards: Amazing Workplace Culture and Virtual Employee Engagement.
Ragan’s Employee Communications Awards recognizes the best internal communicators and specific initiatives that boost collaboration, foster innovation, and exceptional workplaces. Honoring those who made the shortlist, Ragan noted, “These impressive finalists kept their remote employees engaged and inspired, championed a more diverse and equitable workplace, and delivered powerful stories.”
The winners will be announced in March.
“We’re grateful Ragan recognized our vision since we started as a virtual, work-from-home company in 2015 – before it was cool,”said Curtis Sparrer, principal and co-founder of Bospar. “When you look at the list of companies we are competing against, it’s easy to get the sense of impostor syndrome: Aflac, Deloitte, Ford, Mastercard, Philip Morris, and ServiceNow. But we’ve been virtual longer, so we’re hoping for a win!”
