SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- H2O+ Beauty has been named a Gold medal winner in the first annual Stevie® Awards for Great Employers' "Employer of the Year" category. The award recognizes the merits of H2O+ Beauty's newly evolved workplace culture, a major part of its comprehensive rebranding that launched earlier this year.
The company has reinforced innovation, transparency, and teamwork as core tenets of its culture, and developed a formal set of values and traditions to enact them. For example, the team enjoys a "Winedown" every Friday, in which everyone can enjoy a glass of wine in a casual discussion space that fosters brainstorming and creativity. Additionally, employees at all levels are now encouraged to voice concerns and share ideas freely, so that everyone understands how the business operates and how it stands up against its benchmarks. The company also makes sure to celebrate successes both big and small with a monthly award series for those that live the H2O+ Beauty values, as this ensures that all team members act within the spirit of the company's culture day in and day out.
"The team's wholehearted adoption of this new culture is helping the entire company realize its incredible potential," said Joy Chen, CEO of H2O+ Beauty. "Now that everyone knows their voice is heard and their thoughts are respected, we've been able to develop some of our best ideas yet."
"The judges were extremely impressed with the quality of entries we received in the first Stevie Award for Great Employers. The dedication these Stevie-winning organizations have to making great workplaces for employees was evident in every nomination," commented Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning "crowned," the awards were presented to winners at a gala ceremony at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City on Friday, September 30.
Over 250 nominations from organizations around the world were submitted for consideration, and more than 50 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year's winners.
