Other winners included the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Allstate, Xerox, Avon and Accenture.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs and the companies they run — worldwide.

The event benefited Camfed, which fights poverty and HIV/AIDS in Africa by educating girls and empowering women to become leaders of change.

“As a finalist in four categories, Staff Management | SMX was a serious contender in this year’s awards,” said Michael Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards. “Since their first Stevie win last year, they have generated an impressive list of accomplishments and this year’s win in the Best Overall Company category is great recognition for their strong performance and leadership.”

“It is a real honor to be included in such a distinguished group of leaders and companies,” said Joan Davison, President and COO, Staff Management | SMX. “To be selected as the best company in our size category is a reflection on the talented and passionate people who run our organization as well as our committed and strategic clients that put their trust in us globally. On behalf of our organization I would like to thank Michael Gallagher for his commitment to raising the profile of women business leaders and the companies they run around the world.”

Finalists in the competition were chosen by business professionals worldwide during preliminary judging. Members of six final judging committees selected Stevie Award winners from among the Finalists during final judging.
