AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, has been named the winner of a Stevie® Award in the Most Valuable HR Team category in the fifth annual Stevie Awards for Great Employers.
The Most Innovative Use of HR Technology During the Pandemic category recognized innovative new uses of existing HR-related technology, programs, and media during the COVID-19 pandemic to keep employees productive, trained, informed, or safe.
Epicor’ submission detailed how the company’s HR team realized the importance of using innovative technology to help drive operational efficiency amid a pandemic, introducing tools including MeBeBot, an AI-powered chatbot to serve its 4,000 global employees to quickly find specific information they need without creating email traffic so they could find out much-needed information about their benefits in a timely manner.
“Communicating with employees and ensuring they have the tools they need to manage their health and well-being has never been more important than during these uncertain times,” said Jignasha Grooms, Epicor Chief Human Resources Officer. “I’m proud that the Epicor HR team realized early on the importance of using innovative technology to help drive operational efficiency and empower employees in unique ways, which made handling these trying times easier. Tools like MSTeams, Yammer, AI Staffing Capabilities, MeBeBot, etc. allow us to have a more satisfied and more informed workforce. We are proud that the Stevie Awards recognized our dedication to innovation, and we look forward to continuing on this path.”
The Stevie Awards for Great Employers recognize the world’s best employers and the human resources professionals, teams, achievements and HR-related products and suppliers who help to create and drive great places to work. Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be conferred upon the winners during a virtual awards ceremony on November 5. More than 700 nominations from organizations of all sizes were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of HR-related categories, and especially popular were six free-to-enter COVID-19 Response categories.
“In the fifth edition of the Stevie Awards for Great Employers, the judges were impressed by the Stevie winners who - during the crises we’ve confronted this year - continue to dedicate each day to making the lives of their employees and teams better through training, software, work-from-home plans, and more. We are pleased to celebrate them in 2020 and look forward to what they will accomplish in 2021,” said Maggie Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards.
