I have tried to foster a collaborative work environment, with strong leadership, where all members of the team can act as a soundboard for ideas. It’s fantastic to see that be awarded.

LabRoots has been named a gold winner in Sales Department of the Year category in Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.

The LabRoots sales team has seen considerable progress as it drives revenue and growth, while maintaining partner relations. In 2015 LabRoots saw a 35 percent revenue growth over 2014, and another 25 percent in 2016. This growth is largely in part to the team’s successful launch of new products, like customized events, while increasing the number of virtual events and webinars LabRoots produces each year.

Two additional teams at LabRoots took home Best in Biz honors; the talented team of designers in the LabRoots creative department was awarded the silver award for Creative Department of the Year for their exceptional work as they saw an increase of 100 percent in custom events in 2016. As a team, they have been able to successfully fulfill nearly 100 percent of the requests a client has and provided positive results on all levels. The LabRoots marketing team took home the bronze for Marketing Department of the Year. The team was honored for their efforts in increasing its online presence, as they did a complete overhaul on branding for all social media platforms in 2015. Which, in turn, doubled the traffic to the LabRoots site trending news pages.

The sixth annual program in North America garnered more than 600 entries, from an impressive array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada. Best in Biz Awards 2016 honors were presented in 60 categories, including Company of the Year, Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, Most Innovative Company of the Year, Best Place to Work, Technology Department of the Year, Executive of the Year, Most Innovative Product of the Year, Best New Product of the Year, App of the Year, PR Campaign of the Year and Website of the Year.

“It is exciting to have so many LabRoots teams honored by the Best in Biz Awards program. It is vital that we hire the right people by creating an environment, product, story that people can get behind,” said Greg Cruikshank, CEO and founder of LabRoots. “I have tried to foster a collaborative work environment, with strong leadership, where all members of the team can act as a soundboard for ideas. It’s fantastic to see that be awarded.”

Winners of Best in Biz Awards 2016 were determined based on scoring from an independent panel of 50 judges from widely known newspapers, business, consumer and technology publications, TV outlets, and analyst firms. In addition to numerous judges returning from the 2011-2015 judging panels, this year’s panel included several worthy additions to the high-profile group. The panel included Accounting Today, AdWeek, Associated Press, Atlanta Tribune, Business News Daily, CNET, Computerworld, Consumer Affairs, Entrepreneur, eWeek Channel Insider, Forbes, Healthcare Innovation News, Inc., Information Week, InfoWorld, Investment Advisor Magazine, MediaPost, Multifamily Executive, Network World, Portland Business Journal, Security Products Magazine, South Florida Business Journal, Wall Street Journal, Wired, WLRN and ZDNet.

“If companies are going to stand out from the crowd and remain competitive in future years, innovation is key. The market is tough and there is no guarantee that today’s dominant players will remain so — unless time and effort are concentrated on research and development,” said Charlie Osborne, ZDNet, one of Best in Biz Awards’ judges this year. “This year’s entries in Best in Biz Awards highlighted not only innovative business practices but the emergence of next-generation technologies which will keep companies current and relevant.”
