Simul8 wins Silver Award for Most Valuable Corporate Response at Stevie Awards
Simul8 has won a Silver Award for Most Valuable Corporate Response at the Stevie Awards for Women in Business. 🎉
We’re delighted to announce that Simul8 has won a Silver Award for Most Valuable Corporate Response at the Stevie Awards for Women in Business.
The Stevie® Awards are the world’s premier business awards. They were created in 2002 to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working professionals worldwide. There are eight Stevie Awards programs, each with its own focus, list of categories, and schedule.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees, and the companies they run– worldwide. As a female led company we are extremely proud to have won an award in this category.
Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 160 business professionals around the world, working on eight juries.
Our Silver Award comes following our work during the pandemic where we offered pro-bono support to organizations worldwide, in the form of free simulation software and consulting expertise to organizations, particularly within the healthcare sector to help them during unprecedented times.
During the past 24 months we’re proud to have given over $130,000 of software and more than 40 days of free consulting time to support organizations with the challenges the pandemic hit them with. The work undertaken spanned 22 countries worldwide and looked at a number of different areas including planning hospital capacity, delivering vaccines with specialised storage requirements and ensuring that the vaccine roll out could happen as efficiently as possible.
CEO Laura Reid said: “The decision to offer our support during the pandemic for free was an easy one. The alternative would have been not to act at all, or to try and profit at the time of greatest need, which would simply go against our whole ethos of improved empowerment and accessibility to technology that can make a positive difference.
“As a SME, this was a big undertaking where we were successful in getting our pro-bono support out to numerous organisations worldwide. I couldn’t be more proud of the whole Simul8 team and it’s such an honor to have their fantastic achievements recognized by winning this Silver Stevie Award. Reading all the judges feedback made us very proud.”
Our work to support others at this time hasn’t stopped there, we are still actively working to help organizations get employees back to work safely, plan how to deal with the backlog of canceled appointments and operations and deal with other issues the pandemic has left behind.
Stevie Award judges include many of the world’s most respected executives, entrepreneurs, innovators, and business educators. Each of the awards programs harnesses the insights and talents of more than 200 judges every year. All Stevie Awards entrants have access to all judges’ comments about their nominations
Here are just some of the comments that Simul8 received about our award entry:
“A stand out entry – particularly due to the impact you and your work has had around the world. People over profit is an inspiring way to respond in a very challenging world.”
“Thank you for stepping up during the pandemic and helping other organisations like hospitals and nonprofits with your probono services and products. It was timely, relevant and much needed.”
“Simul8 proves that when humanity is in distress, ideas can come from all over the world to fight this pandemic: bravo”
“I LOVE this! The ability to simulate scenarios for advance planning is an amazing tool for healthcare services. Love the pro bono and People over Profit approach during such a difficult time. Fantastic platform and valuable response tool.”
