What are the Stevie Awards?

The Stevie Awards for Great Employers recognize the world’s best companies to work for, their HR teams, and their achievements. Winning an award can boost your organization’s reputation, help reach more potential candidates, and improve employee satisfaction (a.k.a. Employer Branding). Past winners include IBM, Cisco, NBC, PayPal, Chipotle, Accenture, and Verizon.

Are there any special Bob/HiBob categories?
