This year has tested the strength, agility, and resilience of HR leaders across every industry. Forced to adapt time and time again, HR teams are navigating new challenges every single day from balancing a remote workforce while planning for a safe return to work to maintaining a positive employee experience under extreme levels of stress and anxiety.

Amidst all of these changes, I’ve been blown away by how our customers have risen to meet challenges and not only surviving, but thriving in this new environment. 

That’s why I’m honored to announce the 2020 winners of the Oracle Cloud HCM Rubies Awards, a program that spotlights our superstar customers. They have elevated their respective HR organizations to the next level by advocating for innovation, prioritizing investment in employees, and embracing emerging technologies to reimagine what’s possible. 

We are proud to announce the 2020 winners of the Oracle Cloud HCM Rubies Awards—honoring our superstar customers in these challenging times.

I am proud to congratulate HR professionals at City of Atlanta, Learning Care Group, Energir, Central Water Authority, Myriad Genetics, TTX Company, Putnam Investments, MAREK, and Delta Dental of California.

One of the incredible things about these awards is that the winners are not selected by Oracle, but rather voted on by our customer community and their peers. We know that these HR teams are doing amazing work – and the industry agrees.
