Morristown, NJ (PRWEB) July 9, 2008
Sapien LLC, the on-demand HR services company that combines transactional and strategic HR in one global solution and that is emerging as the leader in the global evolution of HR solutions, today announced that it has been honored with an International Stevie Award for Most Innovative Company in North America in The 2008 International Business Awards. The International Business Awards are the only global, all-encompassing business awards program honoring great performances in business.
In addition to its win as Most Innovative Company in North America for 2008, Sapien was also awarded Finalist status as Best New Product or Service for Sapien Human Resources Augmentation (HRA), "The New Model for HRO", and Best New Company.
Recipients of International Stevie Awards were selected from more than 1,700 entries received from organizations and individuals in more than 30 countries. Nicknamed the Stevie® for the Greek word "crowned", the awards will be presented to winners at a gala dinner on Monday, September 8 in the Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin, Ireland. Primary sponsors for the event will be Dow Jones and IDA Ireland.
Recognized for creating the first truly global ASP, a one-system/one-world SaaS solution for midsize multinationals, Sapien has empowered today's midsize global companies to take a global HR perspective and manage their worldwide employee bases seamlessly, regardless of language, security protocols or currency. In the process, Sapien has become a champion for today's midsize multinationals.
According to Ryan Tweedie, Managing Partner of Sapien LLC and one of the company founders, this international recognition is particularly gratifying because of the concerted effort Sapien has made in meeting the needs of the mid-market global marketplace. He added, "Sapien has carved out a niche for Global SaaS HRMS with integrated HCM capabilities in which no comparable on-demand solution previously exists and the market is reacting rather favorably."
In addition to winning as Most Innovative Company and being named a Finalist as Best New Company, Sapien was also recognized for introducing the industry’s first HRA service, giving clients the benefit of experienced, certified professionals (PHR) with HR industry knowledge as well as HR technology expertise to effectively augment and contribute to their HR goals.
"Entries to the IBAs grew 65% this year, illustrating the increasing importance of The International Business Awards worldwide," said Michael Gallagher, president of The Stevie Awards, presenters of the IBAs. "We congratulate all of the Finalists and International Stevie Awards winners, and we look forward to honoring them for their achievements at our gala awards dinner in Dublin on September 8."
"We are very honored to have received this award given the caliber of the other entries and previous winners," said Tweedie.
