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 2020 IBAs received entries from organizations in 63 nations and territories.
As the ongoing COVID-19 crisis will prevent winners from receiving their awards on stage during a traditional gala IBA banquet, winners will be celebrated instead during a virtual ceremony on Tuesday, 1 December.
More than 3,800 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. eDriving was nominated in the Governance, Risk & Compliance Solution category for its comprehensive driver risk management program, Mentor by eDrivingSM. The global provider of driver risk management programs was also nominated in the COVID-19 Most Valuable Corporate Response category for the extensive range of resources it provided through its COVID-19 Resource Center to support organizations in their efforts to protect the safety of those required to drive for essential work purposes through the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’re absolutely thrilled that eDriving has been recognized in the International Business Awards, not only for our driver safety solution, Mentor by eDriving, but for our response to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Ed Dubens, Founder/CEO of eDriving. “Organizations around the world rely on us to help ensure that those who drive for work purposes make it home safely to their loved ones every day and – while the risks facing drivers have increased – this has remained our absolute mission throughout. It is testament to the passion and dedication of our team that, during our own adjustment to home-based working for our employees globally we were able to produce award-winning resources to help organizations navigate these difficult times.”
eDriving’s COVID-19 Resource Center included live webinars (now available to view on demand), two complimentary eLearning courses for an unlimited number of drivers, best practice guides, a Q&A section with risk management and EHS&S experts, videos and articles.
Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 250 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from July through early September.
