San Francisco, Calif., October 8, 2018 —SweetRush rose above the competition at the 2018 Stevie Awards for Great Employers, earning a Gold Stevie in the Leadership or Skills Development Solution Provider of the Year category.
The Stevie Awards for Great Employers recognize the world’s best employers and the human resources professionals, teams, products, and suppliers that support them. This Gold Stevie cements SweetRush’s position as one of the world’s top providers of leadership and skills development solutions.
The company received high praise from the judges. Said one judge: “SweetRush’s innovation, instructional design capabilities, and strong team of experts position them as a compelling contender in the learning space. Very diverse in all aspects of service, instructional design, and technical capacity.”
Another judge, calling SweetRush’s product lineup a “big asset” for the learning and development industry, focused on the company’s investment in SPARK, its emerging-technology lab, saying, “I would like to highlight SPARK, which uses virtual reality as the foundation for learning—this is a huge leap for innovations in the learning industry.”
And SweetRush’s favorite comment from the judges? “Outstanding submission. Makes me want to be a SweetRush teammate!”
“We are constantly trying to be the best at what we do, and we aim to prove that to each of our clients. We don’t shy away from the challenge—rather, we feed off it,” says Arturo Schwartzberg, Cofounder and Chairman of SweetRush. “Winning this award is truly an honor for us because it recognizes our overall performance throughout the year. But even more so, it’s a celebration of the amazing team we’ve put together. I couldn’t be prouder of the gifted and caring people on the SweetRush team.”
