‘Back To Normal Barometer’ Wins Gold at 2021 Bulldog PR

May 26, 2021 by TWN Staff

ROKK Solutions, a bipartisan public affairs firm at the nexus of policy and politics, has been recognized in two categories at the 2021 Bulldog PR Awards.  

The “Back To Normal Barometer,” a groundbreaking study launched in April 2020 with Engagious and Sports & Leisure Research, illuminates consumer preferences across a wide variety of changing pandemic-related issues. It won gold in the Best Use of Research category, while Aflac and Oracle were runners-up.  

In addition, Account Executive Sammie Yeager won silver in the PR Up and Comer category, distinguishing herself for her work with a food and beverage client in creating a national coalition to support bar and restaurant workers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This past year has been one for the record books,” said Rodell Mollineau, co-founding partner of ROKK Solutions. “We weathered a pandemic that shook up our lives at work and at home, and we navigated a contentious and historic presidential election.  Through it all, we are proud that our teams were committed to our clients and their business challenges, and this recognition is a reflection of that dedication and passion.”

ROKK adds these accolades to an expanding portfolio of recognition including the PRovoke SABRE awards, the PRNEWS CSR and Diversity Awards, The Agency Elite 100, the PRovoke IN2 SABRE awards, and the PRNEWS Platinum Awards. The growing agency has undergone a strategic expansion over the past 36 months which has resulted in double digit growth and a 360-degree integrated suite of capabilities designed to service the evolving needs of clients in the public affairs marketplace. 

The Bulldog PR Awards recognize the best and brightest in public relations, and are the only awards exclusively judged by journalists.  For a full list of this year’s winners, click here.
