The accolade covered six categories, for both individuals and employee groups: the Top Performance Award for those who surpassed targets and delivered outstanding business results; the Vanguard Award for those who adopted best practices and enhanced operational efficiency; New Frontiers Award for those who pursued additional markets to showcase Refinitiv’s services; Talent Crusaders Award for those who developed themselves and their teammates toward connectivity; Ambassadors Award for those who have made a huge impact towards a safe, fair, and effective financial ecosystem; and the Special Merit Award for those who went beyond their official role by championing Sustainability and Diversity & Inclusion within the company.

“The Refinitiv Excellence Awards is just one of the many ways we encourage our employees to take pride in their work, thrive in their authentic selves, and sustain best practices. By inspiring them to find joy in their career every day, we can continue to serve our clients with our brand of quality,” ends Buendia.
