Global IR poll and Canada Awards
This is an edited version of IR Magazine Week, IR Magazine's weekly newsletter. To receive the newsletter, please register here.
Last year, we reported that IR budgets continued to fall, salaries for department heads ticked up, use of outsourcing increased and macroeconomic issues became less of a challenge for IR practitioners.
Those are just a handful of the findings pulled from our IR Magazine Global Investor Relations Survey, which we conduct to review the state of investor relations across different regions, market caps and sectors. Last year, we had more than 1,500 respondents, making it the biggest survey of its kind.
The latest round of the survey is currently under way and will close on February 20. The next round of the IR Magazine Global Investor Relations Survey will take place in June 2015.
We had a fantastic time hosting the IR Magazine Awards – Canada 2015 last week; many thanks to all of you who attended and made it such a great event. Whether you came and want to relive the night, or couldn’t make it and want to find out what happened, below you’ll find a selection of content rounding up proceedings.
You can also read about why IR technology leaves Canadian investors unimpressed (a finding that came out of our investment community research for the awards) and find details of the session on shareholder activism from the IR Magazine Investor Perception Seminar – Canada 2015, which took place earlier in the day.
