Sutherland Global Services was recently named the recipient of a Silver Stevie® Award in the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) category in The 12th Annual International Business Awards. Sutherland Global Services was honored for its wide-ranging CSR initiatives, including the charitable work of the Sutherland Global Foundation and the digital literacy courses offered through the Community Technology Center program.
The International Business Awards are the world’s premier 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 2015 IBAs received entries from more than 60 nations and territories. Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 200 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from May through early August.
“We are honored to receive this prestigious recognition of our many CSR efforts around the world in advancing issues and programs that impact areas such as youth, education, technology and the environment,” said Dan Lang, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Customer Relations and Head of Corporate Social Responsibility for Sutherland Global Services. “This award reflects the spirit of generosity and giving back among our employees and company as we strive to enhance the quality of life in communities where we work and live.”
More than 3,700 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. Sutherland Global Services received the Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year award.
“The IBAs grow in stature and renown every year, and with that the number and quality of entries increases,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “This year’s judges were treated to more than 3,700 stories of success and achievement around the world. We thank the judges for their time and feedback, and we congratulate the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie winners whom we’ll celebrate in Toronto in October.”
