SAN FRANCISCO, July 12, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Lever, a leading Talent Acquisition Suite, announced its first-ever, Rise Awards as part of their annual customer conference, Lever Ascend. The Rise Awards recognizes and celebrates employees, employers, and organizations committed to excellence in talent acquisition.
"Over the past year, companies have navigated distributed work, hiring freezes, layoffs, accelerated growth, and so much more," said Nate Smith, co-founder and CEO of Lever. "We are excited to drive visibility and awareness to the talent acquisition leaders and teams that carried companies through this time and who continue to fill positions quickly and build candidate relationships. We believe it's important to highlight the innovations being made in talent acquisition, and we're excited to recognize the creativity teams have harnessed during a difficult year."
Lever is powering The Rise Awards, but will feature a panel of judges, including Ben Eubanks, Chief Research Officer at Lighthouse Research, Steve Smith from Starr Conspiracy, and Dean Delpeache, Director, Talent & Diversity at Fiix Software, and Madeline Laurano, Founder at Aptitude Research.
The submissions open starting today, with a deadline of Friday, August 20. Nominations are open to customers and external organizations, regardless of industry, size or market presence. Entries will be reviewed by a panel of experts for categories including: candidate experience, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), candidate relationship management (CRM), HR technology and talent operations innovation, talent attraction, onboarding programs, Talent Acquisition team achievements, and Rising Stars.
Top talent can work wherever, but earning this award further proves that you've created an amazing team and elevates your employer status.
