Excellence in Business Award Winners Exemplify Strategies Necessary for Tough Times
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA, January 20, 2010 – NSCA announced the winners of its 2010 Excellence in Business Awards today:
LIVE! Technologies will receive the Professional Development award
“Despite the fact that the past 12 to 18 months have been extremely challenging for many companies, NSCA received more applications for these awards this year than ever before,” said Chuck Wilson, NSCA executive director. “It was exciting to read the submissions and realize how extremely talented and creative the business owners are in our industry. The winners and numerous applicants are a positive sign for the future electronic systems.”
This year’s recipients used creative, visionary strategies to build successful business models and receive the distinct honor of an NSCA Excellence in Business Award.
LIVE! Technologies, winner of the Professional Development Award, encourages associates to outline their long-term professional goals. The company then uses these personal goals to create individual plans encompassing a variety of professional development and training. Incorporating this plan into employees’ regular routines and meetings with managers allows LIVE!’s in-house trainer to develop and monitor individual progress and success. The company understands that an investment in professional development not only increases employee satisfaction and loyalty, but also increases customer satisfaction as well.
Systems integrators who showed exemplary and successful business strategies were selected to receive an Excellence in Business Award from self- or peer-nominated applications. Award winners receive one complimentary admission to the NSCA Business & Leadership Conference, February 25-27, Palm Beach Gardens, FL, as well as recognition during the opening ceremonies.
