The Stevie® Awards, organizer of the world’s premier business awards programs, today announced the winners of three Grand Stevie Award trophies in its third annual Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards. The Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards are the only awards to recognize innovation in the workplace throughout the entire 22-nation Asia-Pacific region. All organizations in the region are eligible to submit nominations.
Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners in the various categories were announced on April 20. Those awards were determined by the average scores of more than 50 executives worldwide earlier this year.
All awards will be presented to winners during a gala event at the Westin Hotel in Sydney, Australia on Friday, May 27. Tickets for the event are now on sale.
The three Grand Stevie Award winners announced today are:

The leading telecommunications and network services provider in Indonesia won the most award points in the competition this year – 36 – earned for five Gold, eight Silver, and six Bronze Stevie wins in a variety of categories for innovation. Each Gold win earns three points, each Silver win two points, and each Bronze 1.5 points for the Grand Stevie-winner calculation.
