The company was named a winner in the COVID-19 Response category int 17th Annual International Business Awards (IBA) for Most Valuable Corporate Response and Most Valuable Technical Innovation (non-medical) for its Return to Work solution.
As the ongoing COVID-19 crisis will prevent winners from receiving their awards on stage during a traditional gala IBA banquet, winners will be celebrated instead during a virtual ceremony on Tuesday, 1 December.
The 2020 IBAs received entries from organizations in 63 nations and territories. More than 3,800 nominations were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. Winners were determined by the average scores of more than 250 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from July through early September.
Konica Minolta’s Return to Work solution has received a Bronze Stevie Award in the 2020 International Business Awards. The offering combines Konica Minolta’s proprietary software and workflow solutions through its Enterprise Content Management (ECM) business with its MOBOTIX Thermal TR cameras, which have been deployed at hospitals to help frontline healthcare workers assess patient symptoms faster.
“As a company, we are committed to continuously pivoting our business to anticipate and meet the needs of customers in an ever-changing market place,” said Rick Taylor, President and CEO, Konica Minolta. “I have been inspired by the agility and resilience I have seen throughout the company to support dealers, clients and employees during these unprecedented times, and we are honoured to be recognised for our efforts. This is just the beginning of a long road to recovery and we will be with them every step of the way.”
Konica Minolta’s Return to Work programme is a comprehensive solution that supports employees’ safe return to office locations and provides ongoing, best-in-class security with facial recognition and access control. Through an integrated cloud-based application for data collection, the solution ensures businesses can track, manage and report on each individual’s entry in compliance with company and state requirements. From installation to support to service, the products, software and technology are developed, owned and implemented by Konica Minolta. Comments recognising the solution included, “Indeed addresses the need of the hour with the wow factor of developed, tested and rolled out in a span of four weeks!” and “Great solution with lots of lines of defence implemented. I am glad to hear that Konica Minolta hasn’t lost its appetite for innovation and creativity.”
“Despite the unprecedented impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on organisations and working people worldwide, the number and quality of nominations we received in this year’s International Business Awards attests to the continued outstanding performance of many organisations. The commitment we’ve seen through these nominations to maintaining the success, health, and safety of employees, customers, and communities is truly impressive,” said Stevie Awards President, Maggie Gallagher.
