Aufruf für Einsendungen für die erstmals vergebenen German Stevie Awards

Der Veranstalter des weltweit führenden Business-Awards-Programms gab heute bekannt, dass das neueste Programm - die German Stevie Awards - in Deutschland angesiedelt wird. Nominierungen von Firmen, die ihre Geschäfte in Deutschland betreiben, sind ab sofort unter www.StevieAwards.com/Deutschland möglich.

Die Stevie® Awards gelten weithin als weltweit renommierteste Wirtschaftspreise, die seit 12 Jahren in Programmen wie The International Business Awards und The American Business Awards vergeben werden. Jedes Jahr werden mehr als 8.000 Preisträger von Unternehmen aus mehr als 60 Ländern für die Stevie Awards nominiert.

Die German Stevie Awards sind eines von nur zwei nationalen Stevie-Awards-Programmen nach den zwölf Jahre alten American Business Awards. „Deutschland ist ein riesiger, dynamischer Wirtschaftsraum mit vielen ausgezeichneten Unternehmen in einer breit gefächerten Branchenvielfalt“, erklärte Michael Gallagher, President und Gründer der Stevie Awards. „Es ist seit langem unser Ziel, ein weiteres nationales Stevies-Programm in einer bedeutenden Wirtschaftswelt einzurichten, und Deutschland ist die ideale Wahl, da es die größte europäische Wirtschaft und nach BSP gemessen die fünftgrößte Wirtschaft der Welt ist.“

Die Stevie-Awards-Trophäen werden vom selben Hersteller produziert, der auch die Oscars und weitere internationale Preise herstellt, und gehören zu den begehrtesten Auszeichnungen der Welt.

Für die German Stevie Awards werden Nominierungen aus allen Organisationen, die in Deutschland tätig sind, angenommen - groß oder klein, gewerblich oder gemeinnützig, in öffentlicher oder privater Hand. Zur Auswahl stehen zahlreiche Kategorien, darunter

Zur Feier der erstmaligen Verleihung der Awards in Deutschland wird für Nominierungen, die innerhalb der Frühanmeldefrist bis 30. September eingereicht werden, keine Teilnahmegebühr erhoben. Ab 1. Oktober beträgt die Teilnahmegebühr für Nominierungen bis zum zweiten Einsendeschluss am 5. November nur 99 Euro. Für Nominierungen, die nach dem 5. November bis zum endgültigen Einsendeschluss am 10. Dezember eingehen, wird die Standard-Teilnahmegebühr von bis zu 400 Euro je Einsendung erhoben.

Die Prüfung der Einsendungen erfolgt in zwei Runden. In der ersten Runde werden die Gewinner der Gold-, Silber- und Bronze-Stevie-Awards in jeder Kategorie ermittelt. Diese Preisträger werden am 23. Februar bekanntgegeben. Die Gewinner der Gold Stevie Awards gehen dann in eine zweite Runde, wo der Gewinner des Grand Stevie Award der jeweiligen Kategoriegruppen ermittelt wird. Die Preisträger der Gold-, Silber- und Bronze-Stevies werden Ende März im Rahmen einer Galaveranstaltung in Deutschland geehrt, bei der auch die Grand Stevie Awards verliehen werden.

Die Preisjurys der German Stevie Awards werden demnächst zusammengestellt. Interessierte, die am Beurteilungsverfahren teilnehmen möchten, können sich ebenfalls unter http://www.StevieAwards.com/Deutschland anmelden. An den Stevie-Awards-Wettbewerben nehmen im typischen Fall mehr als 200 Führungskräfte als Preisrichter teil.

Im Lauf der Jahre sind schon zahlreiche deutsche Firmen in den Stevie-Awards-Programmen ausgezeichnet worden, darunter beispielsweise die Adidas-Gruppe, Bertelsmann AG, DP DHL, Lufthansa und Siemens AG. „Mit den German Stevie Awards sind wir dann in der Lage, die Leistungen von wesentlich mehr deutschen Unternehmen und Führungskräften zu würdigen“, so Gallagher weiter.

Uwe Krummenoehler, CEO der AVL Emission Test Systems GmbH in Neuss, Gewinner eines Bronze Stevie Award der Kategorie International Business Awards 2013, sagte: „Die Auszeichnung mit einem Stevie Award zeigt, dass wir in vieler Hinsicht auf dem richtigen Weg sind. Unsere gute Leistung wurde von zahlreichen hochrangigen Führungskräften bestätigt und das ist für unser Geschäftsleitungsteam und unsere Mitarbeiter von großer Bedeutung.“

Laut Gallagher gibt es viele Gründe, warum sich Unternehmen an den Stevie-Awards-Programmen beteiligen, darunter in erster Linie die markenfördernden Vorteile einer bedeutenden nationalen oder internationalen Auszeichnung, die positive Einstellung der Mitarbeiter, wenn sie für Auszeichnungen nominiert werden, und die Networking-Möglichkeiten mit anderen Führungskräften bei den jährlichen Awards-Galaveranstaltungen.
