Thought Leadership Award

Germany's companies are currently facing major challenges: Digitalization is turning business models upside down, economic risks and trade conflicts are clouding the outlook.

In the media, the farewell song for the German economy is already being heard. This is not only problematic for the individual German companies, but also for society as a whole: because belief in the future strength of German companies is a basis for an optimistic view of the economic development of the country as a whole.

UNICEPTA has therefore conducted a study: Which company communicated best the counterpoint and proved its future viability?


Infineon wins the Thought Leadership Award 2019

The Thought Leadership Award 2019 goes to Infineon Technologies AG, a company that has communicated its future viability particularly well.

Infineon's communications team successfully translates the company's strategy into strong content about megatopics – and the media environment attributes viability for the future to Infineon as well.

The Thought Leadership Award is handed out at the gala of the International German PR Prize on 11 April 2019 in Stuttgart. Find here the press information.


Report: German companies with best communication to show future viability

UNICEPTA has analyzed the media positioning in the area of “future viability” of the 240 German companies with the highest revenues. All in all, 3.5 million articles and posts with 13.5 million user reactions were analyzed:  

  • Which industries are in focus?
  • Which companies were particularly strong represented with articles and postings on their future viability?
  • How strong and clear is the evaluation “viable for the future” made by journalists and posts?

UNICEPTA and the German Public Relations Society (DPRG) has been handing out the Thought Leadership Award annually, since 2016. The Award honors outstanding communication achievements on topics of particular social relevance on the basis of a multi-stage, cross-media analysis.


Previous winners of the Thought Leadership Award include:

  • 2018: Bosch for the best communication to shape major public debates in business and economy
  • 2017: Deutsche Telekom for the best communication in the era of digitalisation
  • 2016: Kuka for intelligent communication of the mega-topic digitalisation
