06 Jun PRC Shortlisted for Top ICON Award!
We are VERY excited to announce that Powers Resource Center has been shortlisted for the prestigious ‘Top 25 Human Resources Vendor’ Award from OnConcerences.com. We won’t know if we won until next January, but we are over the moon that we are in the running!
We have a great track record with OnCon and the ICON Awards. We won the ICON Contributor Award earlier this year, and we were nominated for two additional ICON awards – Trailblazer and Leadership. The OnConference ICON Awards recognize top companies in marketing, human resources and legal and the awards are voted on by industry leaders.
You could look at professional awards as a nice pat on the back or an ego boost, but it’s actually much more valuable than that. And it’s something every organization should be doing. Who doesn’t love getting some recognition? Here are some solid reasons to seek appreciation for your work:
- Benchmarking – the process of applying for a business award will force you to look at your business and compare your work to your competitors. This exercise will help you think about ways to innovate and improve your company and your programs.
- Credibility – Being short-listed, nominated and/or winning an award creates an instant 3rd party endorsement for your business. It is a seal of approval from an external, credible source and a sign of quality for potential customers, suppliers and competitors.
- Motivation – Awards recognize the hard work and achievements of your business and all of your employees, so winning can boost morale and improve motivation. Everyone can take pride in the achievement of the award and it’s a great excuse to hold a celebratory event to make sure everyone gets the recognition they deserve.
- Marketing – Winning an award can open doors to winning new business and breaking into new markets. Don’t let your humility get in the way of leveraging the award in all your marketing and public relations materials, and social media activity. You’ll see how an award can improve your networking opportunities by raising your profile in your industry.
Stay tuned! We’ll definitely keep you posted on the outcome of the ICON Awards, but in the meantime, we encourage you to seek out your own professional recognition
