TP Times is here

April 24, 2013

TP Times is here ? and there’s no doubt that it’s the bright, smart and people-focused tabloid that it aimed to be for the Travis Perkins workforce.

The internal communications team at the builder’s merchant business is delighted with the swanky new publication, and says it ticks all the boxes ? clean design and engaging content, with people at its heart. TP Times is set to be the company’s ‘hero’ communications channels, relaying strategic messaging and human interest stories to employees across the country in an easy-to-digest, engaging format.

David Manning, Group Internal Communication Manager, said: “It’s been great to work with Headlines on our first publication together. They have executed our brief brilliantly. TP Times is informal yet informative; engaging, entertaining and educational. It reinforces our strong people culture, and colleagues are really enjoying reading it. We think it’s fantastic.”

Within days of the publication landing in branches, competition entries and story suggestions had started flowing in; the newspaper was deemed the embodiment of Travis Perkins’ vibrant and down-to-earth personality and culture. One reader wrote in saying: “I had loads of really positive and enthusiastic feedback from staff this week.”

The Corporate Communications team at the Travis Perkins Group is so happy with the final publication and the great working relationship with Headlines, they the two teams are now starting work on a second publication, separate publication for another area of the Group. Here’s to a long and happy working relationship!
