LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) September 10, 2020
Poms & Associates, an independent, full-service insurance brokerage and risk management firm, announced today it has been named the winner of a Silver 2020 International Stevie® Award in the “Most Valuable Corporate Response to COVID-19” category at The 17th Annual International Business Awards® (IBA). Poms & Associates responded to the unprecedented challenge for businesses created by COVID-19 by creating a weekly series of more than 20 free educational webinars about business insurance, risk management and loss prevention topics.
“This award is a wonderful recognition for the entire team at Poms & Associates,” said Dave Poms, president of Poms & Associates. “When we saw that the pandemic was changing the critical information on which businesses rely on a near daily basis, we created our webinar series to help employers and managers help their employees stay healthy and adjust to ‘the new normal’ of remote work. Our company is built on the premise that knowledge is the best insurance and we took an ‘all hands on deck’ approach to offering free access to many of the top business insurance and risk management experts who could address many of the most pressing issues for businesses related to COVID-19.”
The Poms & Associates’ COVID-19 webinar series is presented by members of the company’s Risk Control Services team with participation by federal and state government agencies, law experts and others. The weekly series of original 60-minute webinars addresses a wide range of COVID-19 issues related to business insurance, risk management and loss prevention. All of the webinars are archived and free to view at the Poms & Associates website.
According to one of the IBA judges: “Insurance companies are not always seen as being community focused organizations, so it is great to see Poms & Associates stepping into a community focused role during the global pandemic. Working with external organizations, and making additional resources, information and skill sets available to the community during these times shows great collaboration skills.”
The International Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards program. The 2020 IBAs received more than 3,800 entries from organizations in 63 nations and territories. The awards program’s COVID-19 Responses category is a special category for 2020 that recognizes exemplary responses to the pandemic by companies “that have worked valiantly over the past months to keep us [employees, customers and communities] safe, healthy, employed and informed.”
“Despite the unprecedented impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on organizations and working people worldwide, the number and quality of nominations we received in this year’s International Business Awards attests to the continued outstanding performance of many organizations. The commitment we’ve seen through these nominations to maintaining the success, health, and safety of employees, customers, and communities is truly impressive,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher.
