Who doesn't want to hear their name spoken over a public address system...or a nationwide television broadcast...after those words? We all grew up watching the Oscars and the Emmys and the Grammys on television (or some other assemblage of entertainment industry awards, if you didn't grow up in the U.S.A.). We dreamed of climbing the steps onto that stage, while the audience roar their approval, to accept that massive trophy that weights about 10 pounds, while our loved ones weep tears of joy for us in the audience, and we thank our teachers and our parents and everyone else we've ever met in a 90-second acceptance speech that will be replayed in highlight broadcasts for decades.
We all want to be recognized for what we do, for what we accomplished. And that's what this blog is about. It's about giving people their "Oscar" moment for their workplace achievements. The Stevie Awards are business awards. We recognize companies and non-profits, executives and employees, teams and departments. We'll blog about their achievements, and would like to hear your comments, suggestions, thoughts and ideas.
Tell about your achievements, about those of your co-workers and colleagues. Point us to articles you've read about extraordinary people and their accomplishments, and we'll see about getting them even more recognition.
