Honoring Retirement Plan Education Superstars

PSCA honors the winners of its annual Signature Award competition at its National Conference today.

The Plan Sponsor Council of America (PSCA), part of the American Retirement Association (ARA), is pleased to announce the winners of its 2022 Signature Awards – the nation’s pre-eminent retirement plan communication recognition.  

PSCA’s Signature Awards recognize exemplary retirement plan education and communications, with an emphasis on creativity, unique themes, and tangible outcomes. These workplace communication programs continue to be an essential education tool for plan sponsors as they seek to help workers maximize plan benefits and save for retirement, particularly in the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A panel of 20 business leaders evaluated and selected the winners of the 2022 Signature Awards from 68 entries in eight key categories.  The winners will be honored throughout PSCA’s 75th Annual National Conference in Phoenix, Arizona April 28-29.

“Plan sponsors continue to find creative and unique ways to engage employees to save for retirement, particularly in light of the challenging COVID-19 environment,” notes Will Hansen, executive director of PSCA. “This year’s winners demonstrated an ongoing ability to pivot their education and communication programs to meet the needs of the current environment, and obtained amazing results.”
