IBM Beacon Laureate Award
The IBM Beacon Laureate Award recognizes Business Partners who have consistently demonstrated exemplary achievement in a Beacon Award category. The Beacon Laureate Award is the highest Beacon Award a Business Partner can receive, as it recognizes multiple years of winning and being a finalist in the same Beacon Award category. This award is given in recognition of outstanding achievement over many years.
The criteria for the award is:
A Beacon Laureate Award Winner will receive authorization to use the Beacon Laureate mark for a five-year period. Use of the mark will be terminated if the Business Partner submits an award nomination to the same category in which the Laureate Award was granted within the five-year period. Beacon Laureate Award Winners will also receive an enhanced set of Beacon Award winner benefits, in the year they are named a Beacon Laureate Award Winner.
There is no need for Business Partners to nominate their solution for this award. Winners are determined by their current and past success as Beacon Award Winners.
