"What these awards mean for our customers is industry recognition and verification that our programs are well designed to produce better trained, equipped, and even more customer-focused service and support personnel, who through great enablement and training ensure our customers receive a world-class experience and top-notch support from Akamai."
-- Andrew Heifetz, Sr. Manager of Global Technical Enablement and Education, Akamai

"Organizations around the world highly value Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards --so much so that we received a record number of applications in the middle of a global pandemic," said Rachel Cooke, Brandon Hall Group COO, and leader of the HCM Excellence Awards Program. "The awards provide valuable recognition and validation of best practices in all areas of HCM at a time when they have never been more important to both employers and employees."

Award entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts, and executives, based upon the following criteria: fit the need, design of the program, functionality, innovation, and overall measurable benefits.

Excellence Awards winners will be honored at Brandon Hall Group's HCM Excellence Conference, January 26-28, 2021, at the Hilton West Palm Beach in Florida. Select winners also will serve as presenters in breakout sessions, sharing their leading practices during the conference.

"The Excellence Awards serve the critical function of reinforcing the essential business benefit of creating great experiences for candidates and employees," Brandon Hall Group CEO Mike Cooke said. "All award winners must demonstrate that their HCM programs drive bottom-line business results. That's what sets our awards program apart from all others."
