UST, a leading digital transformation solutions company, was recognised for the fourth consecutive year at the prestigious 2023 Business Culture Awards (BCA), winning recognition for its commitment to fostering a culture of excellence and sustainability. This year, UST secured wins in two significant categories – Best CSR/Corporate Sustainability Initiative for its community-based environment projects aligned with its business strategy and net zero goal, and Best Global/International Organization for Business Culture for COLORS, an award-winning employee engagement program of UST.
The award ceremony was held in London, UK, and celebrated UST’s exceptional accomplishments in fostering a culture of excellence and sustainability. The company secured victory in two competitive categories, underscoring its commitment to corporate social responsibility, and building an inclusive business culture. UST has previously been recognized across a range of categories by BCA, earning recognition as the Best Large Organization – Business Culture and Building a Culture of Innovation in 2022, the Business Culture Team Award in 2021 and the Best International Initiative for Business Culture in 2020.
By securing top honors in the Best CSR/Corporate Sustainability Initiative, UST affirmed its dedication to leading in corporate sustainability and social responsibility on a global stage. Furthermore, recognition by BCA as the Best Global/International Organisation for Business Culture category, highlights UST’s global influence and unwavering commitment to cultivating a positive and inclusive business culture. In addition to these prestigious awards, UST was named a finalist in three other prominent categories:
· Building a Culture of Innovation Initiative: UST’s initiatives to instill a culture of innovation within the organization were acknowledged, positioning the company among the finalists in this dynamic category.
· Business Culture Leadership Award: UST’s leadership’s commitment to cultivating a positive and impactful business culture garnered the company a finalist position in this leadership-focused category.
· Business Culture Team Award (Large Organization): UST’s expansive team and their collaborative efforts were recognized, securing a finalist position in the large organization category.
BCA judges were impressed by the impact of UST’s initiatives, with one stating, “An organization that effectively translates its words into actions in the realm of CSR.” Another judge praised UST’s inclusive strategy, noting, “COLORS of UST serves as a noteworthy illustration of enhancing and adapting a well-established, award-winning program to meet evolving organizational and global needs, rather than opting for a complete reinvention, which often involves communication and adoption challenges.”
