GENEVA, Switzerland – December 10, 2020 – Temenos (SIX: TEMN), the banking software company, today announced that it won the Business Culture Award 2020 for ‘Best Business Culture in a Crisis’. The prestigious awards celebrate forward-thinking companies that have created outstanding work-environments, enabling their employees to perform to their very best, facilitating exceptional business performance and customer delivery.
Temenos received the ‘Best Business Culture in a Crisis’ award for the strength of its culture and how it quickly supported banks through the crisis. In particular, the judges were impressed by Temenos’ vital solutions it offered to support banks, the company’s seamless transition to remote working, and the rapid move from physical to online events and channels.
Support included propositions designed to help banks in their immediate response to the pandemic but also to accelerate their digital transformation for the future. These Software-as-a-Service technology propositions ranged from helping banks to rapidly offer loans to small businesses and support their employees and the economy as a whole. This included helping US banks deliver billions of dollars in Paycheck Protection Program loans and enabling UK banks to accelerate loan applications under the government’s backed Bounce Back loans and Coronavirus Business Interruption Scheme (CBILS). Other propositions included financial crime mitigation solutions and opening up Temenos’ online learning community to banks for free.
Max Chuard, Chief Executive Officer, Temenos, said:
“I’m so proud that the strength of our culture has shone through in such an exceptional year. Banks are being called upon to help society recover, by providing their customers with digital banking solutions, and by helping governments to roll out financial rescue packages. Supporting our people and our banking clients at this very difficult time required incredible agility, speed and innovation. It was a real test of our business and our Temenosity – caring for each other, never giving up or standing still, being ambitious and constantly looking ahead. Whilst we’re still adjusting to the ‘new normal’, we have seen great results from our approach, demonstrating the commitment of Temenosians and our ability to deliver banking solutions with real and lasting impact.”
