HR Acuity, the only technology platform specifically built for employee relations and investigations management, has been named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award for Company of the Year and a Bronze for Female Entrepreneur of the Year, 11 to 2,500 Employees, both in the Business Services category, in the 17th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees, and the companies they run – worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards. Winners will be celebrated during a virtual awards ceremony on Wednesday, December 9.
More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 100 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women Run Workplace of the Year.
Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 180 business professionals around the world, working on seven juries.
HR Acuity and its CEO Deborah J. Muller were both honored as pioneers in employee relations. Launching HR Acuity in 2009, Muller understood the urgency of employee relations early. It took seismic events like #MeToo and the Black Lives Matter movement for many organizations to catch up, but employee relations has become a strategic force within organizations. HR Acuity provides the tools and expertise to protect their organizations and reduce risk, act against racial bias, harassment and inequalities and create better, safer workplaces.
In the words of the Stevie judges:
“Movements like #MeToo and Black Lives Matter demonstrate the importance of focusing on ensuring a fair workplace and building workforce trust. HR Acuity remains the only organization of its type that focuses on employee relations, taking into account both the employer experience from a risk perspective and the employees’ experience.”
“Significant advances and prompt response to our chaotic times. Your innovation and your commitment to providing value that is real and practical. Visionary leadership in your industry.”
