International SOS was named the winner of a silver Stevie® Award in the ‘Most Innovative Company of the Year for 2500+ employees’ category in The 15th Annual American Business Awards today.



 The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organisations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

Nicknamed the Stevie’s for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala ceremony at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Tuesday, June 20. Tickets are now on sale.

As the sole Travel Risk Management Services company to receive this honour, International SOS was specifically awarded for Travel Tracker, its industry leading software and assistance platform that helps mitigate heath and security risks to assignee's and business travellers. In their comments, award judges recognised the Company’s dedication to travel risk mitigation through innovation, noting “superior continued work on enhancing customer experience,” and “best performance in ensuring employees are completely aware of risks and employers are fully informed of traveller location and proximity to risk.”

“International SOS is proud to be recognised by the American Business Awards for Travel Tracker”, notes Matthew Bradley, Regional Security Director for International SOS Americas region. “Our clients use it to identify potential exposures and confirm the status of their travellers following an incident. It also helps them with compliance and reporting key metrics to evaluate the success of their travel risk programs. Travel Tracker’s innovative design that tracks travellers, expats and assets using itineraries, mobile check-ins and active tracking combined with strategic partnerships to include data sources from Uber, AirBnB and Everbridge makes Travel Tracker an indispensable component of our clients’ travel risk management solution.”

More than 190 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

“Each year the judges find the quality and variety of the nominations to be greater than the year before. The 2017 competition was intense and every organisation that has won should be proud,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.

More than 3,600 nominations from organisations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Live Event of the Year, and App of the Year, among others.
