San Francisco, CA, Feb. 5, 2018 — SweetRush has been named a finalist in the Sales Training or Coaching Program of the Year category at the 2018 Stevie® Awards for Sales and Customer Service.
Developed in collaboration with its client-partner Bridgestone Americas, the program offers sales, customer service, and product knowledge training for sales associates who sell Bridgestone tires. Accessible on mobile devices, the program uses gamification to increase learner motivation.
“Sales training—done right—is a high ROI initiative for many organizations,” said Arturo Schwartzberg, Chairman and Cofounder at SweetRush. “Our approach is always to understand the audience and what will motivate them to learn. We’re proud of our collaboration with Bridgestone and the fun, engaging, and effective sales training program we continue to create together.”
More than 2,500 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were evaluated in this year’s competition. Finalists were determined by the average scores of more than 150 professionals worldwide, in seven specialized judging committees.
The final results will be announced on Friday, February 23.
