SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RiseSmart, the leader in enterprise career management solutions, was awarded its fourth consecutive Stevie® Award for the Most Innovative Company of the Year at this year’s 12th Annual American Business Awards, the nation’s premier business awards program. This win makes RiseSmart the only company to be awarded four consecutive Stevie Awards in this category since the launch of the program.
“We are proud of the innovative work we do at RiseSmart”
More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes, and virtually every industry, were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year. RiseSmart was awarded the 2014 Silver Stevie Award for the Most Innovative Company of the Year category.
“It’s an honor for us to recognize and celebrate such an outstanding class of organizations and individuals,” said Michael Gallagher, President and CEO of the Stevie Awards. “The judges were especially discerning this year. All of this year’s Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie winners should be proud that the judges recognized their achievements and their ability to express those achievements in a way that captured the judges’ hearts and imaginations.”
