Lithuania won big at the 11th annual CEE Business Services Awards in Warsaw. Lithuania-based international companies received 7 prizes while Vilnius was recognized as the Most Dynamically Developing City in Central and Eastern Europe. This result repeats last year’s record success, when Lithuanian representatives also took home 8 awards.
During the ceremony, global healthcare leader AmerisourceBergen picked up two awards. It was recognized as the Most Vibrant Workplace and, for the second year in a row, the Top CSR Initiative. Telecom expert Telia Global Services Lithuania was named among the CEE’s Business Services Firms of the year, while iTechArt’s new software development center in Vilnius was selected as the Most Promising New Entrant. Citco Vilnius and Moody’s Lithuania were also among the winners, topping the Top Process Automation Implementation and Best University-Business Cooperation categories respectively. Finally, Indrė Sakalauskienė, Head of HR at Danske Bank Lithuania, was awarded the Top BSC HR Director in the CEE.
“The CEE’s business services experts recognized the excellence of both newcomer companies and those that have been operating in Lithuania for over a decade,” says Vida Staskonienė, Director of Business Development at Invest Lithuania. “Such acknowledgement demonstrates that Lithuania is a great place for long-term growth.”
“We also celebrate the fact that members of Lithuania’s GBS & ICT community were awarded for process automation solutions and university-business cooperation. This sends a strong message to investors about the quality of services and the maturity of the GBS ecosystem in Lithuania,” says Vida Staskonienė.
The 11th annual CEE Service Center Awards were organized by the European Business Services Association and CEE Business Media. The event brings the region’s cities and businesses together, highlighting the achievements and importance of the GBS sector.
