SIMSBURY, CT — At the March 11, 2019 Eddy Awards, Spitfire Communications won first place in the Pre-Retirement Preparation category for their work on Cabot Corporation’s 2018 Retirement Planning Guide.

The Spitfire and Cabot collaboration focused on the rollout of a comprehensive retirement savings benefit across numerous communication channels, including the internal employee hub, the Cabot Benefits website, its HR Collaboration site, the retirement page of the 2019 Annual Enrollment Guide and in hard copy form at the 2019 Annual Enrollment Benefit Fairs.

To create the Retirement Planning Guide, Cabot and Spitfire set goals to educate and support employees in every stage of the retirement planning process, evaluated the feedback from employees and HR team members about perceived challenges, customized a plan to support the key findings, and engaged with Cabot’s vendor partners to ensure the guide included the most accurate and extensive details about Cabot’s benefits, processes, tools and resources. The final product reflected the strategic vision and successful communications execution required to increase employee understanding and confidence in planning for a comfortable retirement.

Cabot and Spitfire Communications have worked together for over 10 years, engaging and educating Cabot employees on all aspects of their benefits packages to ensure optimal utilization throughout the organization. Spitfire shares in Cabot’s commitment to their groundbreaking You Matter Well-Being program, which encompasses an array of employee health and financial wellness initiatives, with particular focus on the retirement planning aspect of Cabot’s employee communications strategy.

According to Spitfire’s President and Founder, Jessica Palazzo, “we’re very excited for this second award win with Cabot! Very few companies help employees plan for retirement; it is an important topic to communicate that is often overlooked. Cabot realized this and planned accordingly.”
