The Stevie® Awards, organizer of the world’s premier business awards programs, announced the winners of six Grand Stevie Award trophies in its eighth annual Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards. The Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards are the only awards to recognize innovation in the workplace throughout the entire 29-nation Asia-Pacific region. All organizations in the region are eligible to submit nominations to the competition.

Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners in the various categories were announced on 5 May. Those awards were determined by the average scores of more than 100 executives worldwide acting as judges in March and April. Winners will be celebrated during a virtual awards ceremony on Wednesday, 14 July at 2:00 pm KST. Tickets for the event are now on sale.

APSA Grand Winners

The 2021 Grand Stevie® Award for Most Honored Organization of the Year goes to Telkom Indonesia, with 89 award points. This is the sixth time Telkom Indonesia has earned a Grand Stevie Award in the Asia-Pacific Stevies.  This award could not be applied for directly. The award is determined by a points system based on the total number of awards won in the competition, with a Gold Stevie win counting for 3 points, a Silver Stevie for 2 points, and a Bronze Stevie counting for 1.5.

Grand Stevie Awards are also presented to the highest-scoring nomination from each of the four nations that submitted the most nominations to the competition:

Australia: The nomination of VivoPower International PLC’s organizational turnaround by Arowana (North Sydney), which won a Gold Stevie for Innovative Achievement in Organization Recovery.

China: The nomination by CITIC Telecom International CPC Limited, Hong Kong, of AR Remote Hand - an AR-based operations and maintenance solution to transform customer experience. The nomination won a Gold Stevie Award for Innovation in Technology Development.

Indonesia:  Telkom Indonesia’s nomination of their collaboration with other state-owned companies on the National Vaccine Distribution System (NVDS), winner of a Gold Stevie Award for Most Valuable Service During COVID-19.

Philippines: There is a tie for the highest-scoring nomination from the Philippines, which is second only to China in the number of nominations submitted. Both of the following nominations will receive Grand Stevie Awards:

  • Prime Metro BMD Corporation(Pasay City), winner of a Gold Stevie Award for Most Valuable Corporate Response During COVID-19, for their role in the rapid construction of medical facilities at the outset of the pandemic.
  • SM Supermalls / SM City Clark(Angeles City), for their release of SM Buddy, a virtual shopping assistant developed during the pandemic, which tied Prime Metro BMD’s nomination for the Gold Stevie for Most Valuable Corporate Response During COVID-19.

The 2021 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards have recognized organizations in 20 nations including Australia, Bangladesh, Cambodia, China including Hong Kong and Macao, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Myanmar, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Vietnam. More than 900 nominations about innovative achievements in the 29-nation of the APAC region were considered by the judges this year.

“So many of the nominations we received this year address how organizations and people have met the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, so it makes sense that a majority of our 2021 Grand Stevie Awards will go to nominations that recognize those efforts,” said Maggie Gallagher, President of the Stevie Awards. “We commend all of this year’s Stevie Award winners for their achievements, and we look forward to celebrating them on 14 July.”
