QuiBids racks up the awards!
One of the tougher parts about working for QuiBids’ public relations office is keeping track of all the awards we get nominated for! It’s just part of the job when you work for a company that takes an innovative auction model and finesses it into something reliable and consistent that customers can count on for great savings. It’s a happy marriage between modernization and Midwestern sensibility.
2012 Innovator of the Year
A bus full of QuiBids employees — including three members of our executive team — made the near-two-hour drive from Oklahoma City to Tulsa to accept this distinction from The Journal Record, Oklahoma City’s business newspaper. It was a fun trip to accept an award recognizing Oklahoma’s biggest individual and business innovators across a ton of different fields: non-profit, biotechnology, agricultural, and more. We’re proud to be counted among a terrific lineup of companies and people like AliveCor, Wayne Krehbiel, and Surgery Logistics LLC, that are working to improve the quality of life for all Oklahomans!
2012 Best Places to Work
More recently, we were honored — for the second time running! — by okcBIZ magazine as one of the state’s 30 Best Places to Work. We finished fourth in the Small/Medium Company category last year, so we’re anxiously awaiting the end of this month, when we find out how we finished in our second year of competition. In the meantime though, you should check out some of the fun we have with the products we sell, as that might help explain just why our employees like it here so much.
But really, here are the categories that BIZ, in partnership with Best Companies Group, use to evaluate who’s the tops in Oklahoma:
-Leadership and Planning
-Corporate Culture and Communications
-Relationship with Supervisor
Once again, we’re hopeful for another big finish! Keep your fingers crossed until June 28, when okcBIZ announces the winners.
The 2012 Stevie Awards
And finally, this last one’s a biggie. QuiBids is in the running for the American Business Awards (affectionately known as the Stevies) Fastest-Growing Tech Company of the Year — Up to 2,500 Employees. We’re one of the smaller companies in the category, one of the few from outside of California, and the only one situated in the Midwest, but we’re hoping to take home the gold when we go out to San Francisco in September!
