Study after study has proven that factors other than salary are what drive high employee engagement, and attract top talent. Employees at companies where a diversified team are provided with a work environment where their voices are heard and they are rewarded for contributions are willing to work harder and be more engaged with their organization.
In fact, 68% of employees are willing to accept a lower salary in order to work for a company with a great employer brand.
The TMCnet Workplace Excellence Awards honor innovative brands with outstanding company cultures, commitments to a diverse workplace, and a focus on social responsibility.
Applications should be submitted by all technology organizations who have developed a positive, productive and performance-driven culture. Additionally, TMC is seeking applications from organizations who have fostered a diverse work environment whose culture and commitment to social causes drive performance and growth.
Celebrating technology companies with practices and policies that encourage people of all races, genders and backgrounds to pursue careers in Tech
Harvard Business Review surveyed 1,800 professionals and showed companies with more diverse management are more innovative and perform better than their peers. Similar research has shown a direct link between increased diversity and similar levels of creativity and ease in hiring talent.
Yet, with all this research to support diversity, there are countless counter studies which provide stark statistical evidence that not many tech firms are actually walking the walk. It's a similar portrait for women in STEM fields – particularly at the management and executive levels. The tech industry is now center-stage for increasing workplace diversity.
This is the reason TMCnet presents the TMCnet Workplace Excellence Award for Tech Diversity, celebrating the drive towards a more multicultural, multi-gender, inclusive work environment in the tech field.
Our goal is to highlight companies who are doing their best to improve opportunity for all – regardless of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, veteran status, ancestry, or national or ethnic origin. We urge the companies looking to make a difference to apply.
Convince TMCnet's judging editors your workplace is committed to inclusion at all levels of the organization and that personnel decisions exclude evaluation of non-work related, personal characteristics.
All companies within the technology industry are encouraged to apply for this prestigious award. Applications will be reviewed by TMCnet editors and judges. Winners will be selected based on submitted materials that have been carefully vetted.
The TMCnet Workplace Excellence Award: Tech Diversity will honor innovative brands with inclusionary policies. Applications should be submitted by all technology organizations who have developed a positive, productive and performance-driven culture.
TMCNET WORKPLACE EXCELLENCE AWARDS: SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Celebrating the technology companies committed to society, community, and the environment
Social responsibility - the simple idea that businesses should balance profit-making activities with activities that benefit society, the environment, and the community. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) emphasizes that the relationship to the society and environment is "a critical factor in their ability to continue to operate effectively. It is also increasingly being used as a measure of their overall performance."
This is the reason TMCnet launched the TMCnet Workplace Excellence Award for Social Responsibility. Companies who can provide specific and measurable examples of programs that benefit society, the environment and their communities should apply for this award.
TMCnet's editors will select from applications proving that companies are doing their best to focus on ethics, philanthropy, and environmental causes.
