The awards program is based on innovative solutions to the biggest problems facing the industry and the recipients were honored at the Connectiv Innovation Festival.

The “People’s Choice Innovation Award” was created to make the Innovation Awards engaging and immediate. Attendees at the festival chose SourceMedia as the grand winner from among the 18 contenders by participating in simple, democratic, real-time judging at the venue.

For “Retaining Top Talent,” SourceMedia was recognized for revamping its on-boarding process as well as its approach to creating employee engagement and retention through employee recognition programs.

“There has been a growing perception change of the business, both internally and externally,” said Doug Manoni, CEO of SourceMedia. “SourceMedia is quickly becoming an innovator in the industry. This award is another validation of the integrity of our direction and our vision of the business, and industry, in the future.”
