We won a Stevie Award! What’s a Stevie Award? Well…as my friend Mario Martinez Jr. says, these are the “Oscars” for businesses selected by a global group of judges that award companies on a variety of topics and achievements.
Companies that win Stevie Awards include IBM, DP DHL, Apple, BT, Ford Motor Company, ING, Procter & Gamble, Roche Group, Samsung, Dell Technologies, Allianz Global Assistance, just to name a few.
So it’s quite an honor to win one of their prestigious awards.
But this year was different. COVID-19 changed the face of the world and continues to impact people everyday, so the Stevie Awards team created a new category: COVID-19 RESPONSE
These categories will recognize the responses of business development, customer service, and sales organizations and professionals to the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on their customers, employees, partners, and other stakeholders.
And I’m humbled, proud and grateful to announce we won and placed Bronze in Most Valuable Corporate Response. We know COVID-19 has made video a necessity for businesses, and as a video company we asked ourselves what else we can do to help. People often use our platform to record, send and track videos with customers and employees, but we know we can help in other areas as well such as job hunting. So as we saw the unemployment rates continue to grow at an unprecedented rate, we launched OneMob Free.
OneMob Free gives any person who’s lost their job or has been looking for a job a free license of OneMob, so they can record videos to use in the job hunting process. It could be a video to get you in the door, or a thank you video after a round of interviews. The best thing is you get notified immediately when your video is watched, which can relieve stress when waiting anxiously.
And it works! Out of respect and privacy, I won’t share the person’s name but I was happy to receive this email from a OneMob Free user:
COVID-19 will forever change how we live our lives and how we interact with one another. We thank the Stevie Awards team for creating this category to create more good during a very difficult time. We hope we can continue to help and provide value to those affected and encourage you to tell your network about OneMob Free if they’ve been impacted.
