CPC MarCom Activities

Spring Quarter, 2019

CPC Brand Campaign

At the start of Spring Quarter, the Corporation launched a brand campaign, which built on its theme line, Deliver the Difference. The MarCom department worked with a Cal Poly business student as part of her senior project to conduct campaign research amongst students, faculty, and staff. Quantitative and qualitative research was conducted to fine-tune messaging and imagery. The campaign consisted of print, digital signage, and social media. The campaign resulted in an increase in awareness and positive sentiment of the Corporation. It also received a Gold MARCOM Award, for its design and content.

Making a Difference Campaign

Making a Difference employee engagement campaign recognizes the good work of Cal Poly Corporation employees. Every month employees nominate their co-workers and an employee is drawn randomly, winning a $100 gift card. At the end of the year, a random drawing of all nominees takes place with the winner receiving a $500 gift card. Email, social media, and web support this important effort. This spring, a web form was developed to nominate employees online, streamlining the process. Please click on the arrows on the pictures to view the full campaign.
