RiseSmart, the leading provider of contemporary career transition services, was awarded a Gold Stevie® Award for the Most Innovative Company of 2015 at this year’s 13th Annual American RiseSmart Takes Gold for Innovation at 2015 American Business AwardsBusiness Awards, the nation’s premier business award program. RiseSmart is the only company to be awarded five consecutive Stevie Awards in this category since the start of the program in 2002.
This year there were more than 3,300 nominations submitted for consideration, and more than 200 executives nationwide participated in judging to determine this year’s Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners. Awards were presented in the categories of customer service, human resources, information technology, websites, corporate communications, live events, marketing, publications, videos, and selected categories for company/organization, and management.
“It is an honor to be awarded a Stevie Award for the fifth consecutive year in a row,” said Sanjay Sathé, RiseSmart president and CEO. “At RiseSmart, we strive to continually innovate our services within the outplacement industry to better help our customers. RiseSmart is deeply grateful to be recognized as a gold-level winner this year, and it’s a pleasure to be considered among so many other worthy organizations.”
RiseSmart’s winning innovations in the outplacement industry provide services and technology that address the urgent needs of laid off workers and their former organizations in an increasingly competitive, mobile, and social world of work. Rather than adding a layer of technology to the traditional services offered by most outplacement firms as a concession to the changing job search, RiseSmart’s innovation centers around a proprietary technology and a job search methodology that enhance the quality and efficacy of the career transition services the company offers.
The awards were presented on Monday, June 22, through two award ceremonies, before and after an awards dinner. The pre-dinner presentations were taped and will be broadcast by BizTalkRadio this Thursday, June 25, at 8:00 p.m. ET. BizTalkRadio presented the after-dinner awards, which were broadcasted live nationwide.
