SweetRush-Cisco collaboration yields training video that impresses American Business Award judges with its visual quality and minimalist approach.

San Francisco, Calif., June 13, 2016 – SweetRush Inc. and Cisco Systems, Inc. were recently named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Video Training category at the 14th Annual American Business Awards. The judges’ comments emphasized the video’s creativity and high quality.

“We are extremely proud of our collaboration with Cisco and its results,” said Arturo Schwartzberg, Chairman and CFO of SweetRush. “The high ranking we earned together for this award demonstrates the power of video to rally, motivate, excite, and inspire your audience. You can visually bring to life a message that resonates with their mindset and personal and professional goals.”

The popularity of the original, award-winning video led to a request to create a modified version for recruiting, which is available on Cisco’s YouTube channel: Cisco: Now Hiring the Engineers of Tomorrow.

“The judges were extremely impressed with the quality of entries we received this year. The competition was intense and every organization that has won should be proud,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
