San Jose Water is proud to announce that we have been awarded three prestigious Hermes Creative Awards for 2023.

The Hermes Creative Awards recognize the outstanding work of creative professionals involved in emerging media while promoting the philanthropic nature of marketing and communication professionals. Competition judges evaluate the creative industry’s best publications, branding collateral, websites, videos, advertising, marketing, and communication programs each year. San Jose Water was one of 6,500 entries for the creative awards. We were recognized in three categories. 

The SJW Group (parent company of San Jose Water) Sustainability Report was honored with a Platinum Award, while our water quality communications campaign and customer newsletter both took home Gold Awards. These awards validate our team’s success in efforts to expand our communications with customers — maintaining a consistent voice within the communities we serve.

The SJW email newsletter was launched in August 2022 as an additional communications channel to reach SJW customers. Our newsletters are a way to keep customers informed about all San Jose Water happenings — such as infrastructure updates, employee spotlights, and water conservation posts. The newsletter is sent out about every 6 weeks to over 120,000 customers.

The Sustainability Report summarizes environmental, social, and governance achievements across SJW Group’s local operations which serve customers in California, Connecticut, Maine and Texas. This is an example of how we have remained resilient during unprecedented times.
