The video element of Headlines has been ranked inside the top 50 corporate video providers in the UK.
H3 Productions has been named 36th in Televisual Magazine’s prestigious Corporate 50 survey – moving up a place from the 2016 listings.
It is the fourth time in five years H3 has been recognised in the highly regarded industry shortlist, which ranks the leading corporate communications video providers.

Sara Wilmot, H3’s head of video production, said: “We’re delighted with this recognition from Televisual Magazine.
“There is no denying the industry has endured a challenging year. Appetite for video remains huge – but budgets remain tight.
“Having said that plenty of companies still realise the value of professional and incisive video content, which, of course, is far more shareable and engaging than other forms of content.”
The Corporate 50 survey sees businesses ranked across numerous criteria including size, turnover, numbers of staff and reputation.
It is compiled via questionnaires sent to companies, asking questions about how their business is faring and the state of the sector in general.

Audiences – internal and external – are not daft. Ram corporate messaging or sales-type content down their necks and engagement will be minimal.
