DUBLIN, Calif., May 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- TriNet, a leading provider of comprehensive human resources for small and medium-size businesses (SMBs), today announced the company has won both a Gold and a Bronze Stevie® Award in the 20th Annual American Business Awards® (ABA). TriNet was among more than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry.  The awards were given for TriNet PeopleForce, TriNet's annual conference focused on business resiliency, transformation, agility and innovation for SMBs.

TriNet received a Gold Stevie® Award in the category of Conferences & Meetings – Conference and a Bronze Stevie® Award in the category of Corporate & Community - Customer Engagement Event. ABA judges of TriNet's entries—many of whom are entrepreneurs or leaders of SMBs—praised the event for addressing common SMB problems, highlighted the impressive speaker lineup and noted how moved they were by the 2021 event themes of bravery and resilience. Comments by judges described the event as "phenomenal," "high caliber" and "a great success."

"TriNet PeopleForce was created in 2020, at the height of the pandemic, to serve these businesses that pivoted their operations, pushed through one challenge after another, and made many sacrifices to succeed through the numerous trials," said Michael Mendenhall, TriNet Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Communications Officer. "In 2021, we took this event to the next level with distinguished speakers, compelling content and insights to help them reimagine, rebuild and move forward."

"I am proud of my team that puts so much hard work and excellence into creating an award-winning event to help drive business success and bring incredible solutions to the entrepreneurs who need it," continued Mendenhall.  

Moving from an entirely virtual conference in 2020, TriNet PeopleForce 2021 took place both virtually and in-person from New York City, bringing together a high-profile roster of prominent business leaders, public servants, educators, authors, influencers and health industry experts covering such topics as diversity, equity and inclusion, the great resignation, business resiliency, company culture and the future of work. Conversations, presentations and entertainment were focused on the themes of resilience, innovation and bravery.
