Core BTS is pleased to announce that it was honored in Fast Company‘s 2021 Innovation by Design Awards in the Impact category.
The 10th anniversary of the awards, which can be found in the October 2021 issue of Fast Company, recognize people, teams, and companies that transform businesses, organizations, and society through design. One of the most sought-after design awards in the industry, Innovation by Design is the only competition to honor creative work at the intersection of design, business, and innovation, recognizing the people, companies, and trends that have steadily advanced design to the forefront of the business conversation.
Core BTS was recognized for helping Kroger Health respond to COVID-19 by developing and deploying an application that enabled them to schedule and administer vaccines to customers across more than 35 states.
“Our team is proud to be recognized for the innovative work we did with Kroger Health and the impact it had on communities across the nation,” said Paul Lidsky, CEO of Core BTS. “We are committed to focusing our innovative solutions on driving value for our clients as they seek to serve their customers.”
Entries were judged on the key ingredients of innovation: functionality, originality, beauty, sustainability, user insight, cultural impact, and business impact. The judges included renowned designers from a variety of disciplines, business leaders from some of the most innovative companies in the world, and Fast Company’s own writers and editors.
“Design is not just a beauty contest,” said Stephanie Mehta, editor-in-chief of Fast Company. “It’s something that can change the world and create solutions in a time when we face pressing global issues such as systemic racism, climate change, and a global pandemic. Many of these entries showcase these challenges while providing hope for the future through their steadfast commitment to elevate design.”
Winners, finalists, and honorable mentions are featured online and in the October issue of Fast Company magazine, on newsstands September 28, 2021.
