Timor Telecom hetan prémiu internasionál
Timor Telecom was named a winner of a Bronze Stevie Award in the New Products & Services: Consumer Products & Services category in the second annual Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards today.
TT was awarded Bronze in that category due to its “Wikipedia Zero” project. In September 2014, Timor Telecom announced a partnership with the organization that runs Wikipedia and, since then, offers unlimited and free access to that website, an initiative that benefits all Timorese, specially students, who can, therefore, broaden their knowledge.
This is the second time TT is distinguished with this international award. In 2014, the operator was awarded Another Bronze Stevie Award, in the “Customer Service Leader of The Year” category, that’s to the restructuring of its Call Center. That same restructuring gave TT a Silver Stevie Award in the International Business Awards.
The Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards are the only business awards program to recognize achievement in the workplace in all 22 nations of the Asia-Pacific region. The Stevie Awards are widely considered to be the world's premier business awards, conferring recognition for achievement in programs such as The International Business Awards for more than a decade.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala banquet at the InterContinental Hotel in Shanghai, China on 5 June.
More than 400 nominations from organizations across the Asia-Pacific region were considered this year in categories such as Company of the Year, Executive of the Year, and Website of the Year
“After the awards received in 2014, this is one more proof that Timor Telecom’s market leadership does not happen by chance. We are shoulder to shoulder with the best in Asia, and even the World, and this Wikipedia Zero award has a double satisfaction, because it happens thanks to a project with a great social meaning. A project that allows the Timorese people to have access to a world of knowledge, free of charge, something that only TT could offer, because it recognizes the importance of developing the Timorese society”, Timor Telecom’s CEO, Manuel Joaquim Capitão Amaro said.
Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 50 executives around the world who participated in first-round judging in March and April. A second international panel of judges will choose Grand Stevie winners from among the Gold winners in May. The Grand Stevie winners will be announced at the 5 June banquet in Shanghai.
