Virtusa was presented with the Gold Award at a gala banquet held in Shanghai, China recently.
The Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards are the only business awards program to recognize achievement at workplace in all the 22 nations of the Asia-Pacific region. The Stevie Awards are widely considered to be the world's premier business awards, conferring recognition for achievement in programs such as “The International Business Awards” for more than a decade.
With 86 per cent of its workforce being Millennials, Virtusa has developed an employee engagement platform, V+, which supports its internal HR programs that cater to the unique needs of the millennials. The Stevie Award recognizes Virtusa’s industry-leading position in nurturing and enabling a millennial workforce by implementing workplace systems, processes and best practices.

Using gamification techniques, Virtusa has implemented a smart e-Recruiting module that has helped them to better engage with their new hires and has had a tremendous impact in improving its offer-to-acceptance ratio.
