NEW YORK – February 26, 2018 – Justworks, the fastest growing HR technology platform for entrepreneurs who want to take care of their teams, today announced it has won two Stevie Awards – a silver in the Customer Service Department of the Year in the “Computer Software” category, and a Bronze Stevie for Customer Service Department of the Year in the “All Other Industries” category. The awards were presented at a ceremony in Las Vegas on Friday, February 23 during the 12th annual Stevie® Awards for Sales & Customer Service.

The award acknowledges Justworks’ Customer Success team for superior customer service, an admirable recognition for the newly expanded 24/7 customer support hours for entrepreneurs and their teams. In November 2017, Justworks became the first benefits provider in the industry to offer around-the-clock support for all aspects of the benefits, payroll, and HR process. The expanded offer allows employers and employees to contact the team by phone, email, live chat, and Slack to address important questions quickly and accurately at any time, day or night.

“At Justworks, we’ve elevated our customer service model to match the around-the-clock schedule of entrepreneurs and their hard-working teams,” said Jason Whitman, vice president of customer success at Justworks. “We are proud to receive this recognition from the Stevie Awards for our commitment to today’s modern workforce. As we look towards the year ahead, we hope to continue to expand on 24/7 to new markets and continue to reinforce our role in redefining the HR, payroll, and benefits industry.”

The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service are the world’s top honors for customer service, contact center, business development, and sales professionals. The Stevie Awards organizes seven of the world’s leading business awards programs, also including the prestigious American Business AwardsSM and International Business Awards®.

“All of our Stevie Award winners should be proud of their achievements. Independent professionals around the world have agreed that their accomplishments are worthy of our public recognition,” said Stevie Awards president Michael Gallagher.

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. Entries were considered in 89 categories for customer service and contact center achievements including: Contact Center of the Year, Award for Innovation in Customer Service, and Customer Service Department of the Year; 60 categories for sales and business development achievements, ranging from Senior Sales Executive of the Year to Sales Training or Business Development Executive of the Year to Sales Department of the Year; and categories to recognize new products and services and solution providers.
