Client : EDF Energy, Hinkley Point C (HPC)
Project : The Point – a monthly tabloid newspaper

Challenge
Everyone at Hinkley Point C (HPC) has a shared mission: to build a nuclear power station that will support the UK’s future energy needs. But, with a huge number of specialist workers from different contractors spread across the mammoth site, how could we create a sense of one team?

Solution
We created a monthly tabloid newspaper – The Point – for all 6,000 team members. The print format is easy to pick up and flick through in breaks on-site, using plain English, clean design, and strong photography and graphics to boost accessibility across language barriers. Most importantly, the content is consistently people-focused, growing understanding about the wider build and fostering pride in this incredible piece of engineering.

Results
This monthly snapshot has provided a universal way to celebrate milestones, highlight collaboration, and build a sense of community among a disparate workforce. As well as story sourcing, editorial and design, we provide valuable support to the Internal Communications team on everything from print management and content strategy to planning and stakeholder management. The Point has won regional and national awards with the Institute of Internal Communication (IoIC). 44 Communications were voted as Best Off Site Supplier at Hinkley Point C (HPC) Excellence Awards 2018 for their work on The Point.
