CareerArc Wins Award for Best New Product and Service of the Year in 2015 International Business Awards

CareerArc Outplacement—CareerArc’s Leading SaaS Solution for Career Transition and Coaching Services—Wins Silver Stevie® Award for Best New Product and Service of the Year at 12th annual International Business Awards

CareerArc—a global leader in social recruiting and outplacement—was named the winner of a Silver Stevie® Award for Best New Product and Service of the Year in the Human Capital Management Software category in The 12th Annual International Business Awards today for its leading enterprise solution, CareerArc Outplacement. This award marks the third Stevie® Award win for the company this year: In March 2015, CareerArc won a Gold Stevie® Award for Customer Service Department of the Year, as well as a Silver Stevie® Award for Front-Line Customer Service Team of the Year in the ninth annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service.

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.

“We are honored to once again be recognized for our global leadership in HR technology,” said Robin D. Richards, CEO of CareerArc. “Outplacement and recruitment processes are primed for disruption, and we are proud to be the leading innovation driving that change. We proudly share this award with our clients who strengthen our commitment to deliver employer branding solutions that put people first.”

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.

CareerArc Outplacement received positive marks for the solution’s innovative departure from traditional methods of career transition. Judges’ comments and feedback about CareerArc Outplacement included:

  • “Traditional careers and jobs sites are using old fashioned resume concepts… Choosing the right employee that fits for a specific vacancy requires more than just a resume and this is the power of the user experience presented by CareerArc’s solution.”
  • “Encouraging to see an outplacement programme which is flexible and affordable and available for employees at all levels.”
  • “Great service offering. Great use of technology to help people’s careers move on.”

CareerArc most recently served a global audience through its partnership with the 2015 Special Olympics World Games, wherein CareerArc offered the CareerArc Outplacement solution to all employees and 30,000+ volunteers of the Games.

“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.”

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.
