Securus Customer Service Department has got nominated as the finalist in the Sales and Customer Service category for the 2017 Stevie Award.
I would like to inform all that just three finalists are nominated. This means that Securus is already Gold, Silver or Bronze Stevie Award winner for the year 2017. The Stevie Awards are highly prestigious awards as they are also organizing seven leading business awards, and these are at a global level. These would include the International Business Awards besides the Stevie Awards for Great Employers. This is why I am so happy with this great success for Securus Technologies.
Everyone is simply waiting with bated breath to know the final results. These are going to be announced at the gala banquet to be held on Friday, February 24. It will be at the Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. Everyone including me is keen to watch the other finalists coming in from the U.S.A. along with those who will be coming in from other countries in the world.
This year the numbers have been amazing. There were 2,300 nominations which came from all kinds of organizations. These have come from each and every industry possible. The evaluations are made after the scores of 77 preliminary judges are averaged out. These judges are coming from all across the world. This year there are 61 categories in customer service along with contact center achievements.
Another interesting thing was the seven specialized committees to judge and decide who will be getting the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award placements. All are waiting for the final judging set to take place between January 23 and February 1, 2017.
Michael Gallagher, President as well as the founder of the Stevie Awards, said that the stories this year have been gripping and inspiring. So deciding these placements is going to be a real tough job.
