The Big “I" has won a bronze Stevie® Award for the Most Valuable Non-Profit Response in the COVID-19 Response Category in The 17th Annual International Business Awards®.
The International Business Awards (IBA) are an international business awards program. All individuals and organizations worldwide—public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small—are eligible to submit nominations. The 2020 IBAs received entries from organizations in 63 nations and territories.
As the ongoing COVID-19 crisis will prevent winners from receiving their awards on stage during a traditional gala IBA banquet, winners will be celebrated instead during a virtual ceremony on Tuesday, Dec. 1.
Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 250 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from July through early September.
“The Big 'I' has shown its value in multiples," said judges. “Driven by the idea that caring for others is a bigger cause, the team has shown that collectively they can reach thousands of people and respond to a crisis with tact, discipline and strategic insight. Well done and keep up the momentum going forward!"
More than 3,800 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Company of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Startup of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others. This year's competition also featured a number of categories to recognize organizations' and individuals' response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Despite the unprecedented impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on organizations and working people worldwide, the number and quality of nominations we received in this year's International Business Awards attests to the continued outstanding performance of many organizations," says Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher. “The commitment we've seen through these nominations to maintaining the success, health, and safety of employees, customers, and communities is truly impressive."
