NEW YORK – January 29, 2018Justworks, the easy-to-use payroll, benefits and HR support solution for businesses, was named a Finalist in the Customer Service Department of the Year category for the 12th annual Stevie® Awards for Sales & Customer Service.

The team can be contacted by phone, email, live chat and Slack to meet the unique needs of entrepreneurs and their teams.

“At Justworks, we’re dedicated to helping entrepreneurs tackle the challenges of running a business any way that we can,” said Jason Whitman, Vice President of Customer Success at Justworks. “We know that for entrepreneurs and their teams, the work day isn’t typically limited to 9 to 5. Offering 24/7 customer support helps us be a more reliable partner, and we’re honored to be recognized by the Stevie Awards for this commitment.”

The awards are presented by the Stevie Awards, which organizes several of the world’s leading business awards shows including the prestigious International Business Awards® and the Stevie Awards for Great Employers.

The final results will be announced during a gala banquet on Friday, February 23 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. Finalists from the U.S.A. and several other nations are expected to attend.

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.
