What are the Excellence and Innovation Awards?
DCIIA and Pensions and Investments (P&I), co-sponsor this annual award for excellence and innovation by defined contribution plans and their executives. These two organizations partnered to create the Innovator Awards in 2012 and by 2014, they were a recognized standard for plan sponsor excellence and a signature part of the P&I DC West Conference.
"The quality and range of initiatives in the nominations we received this year was truly amazing, and is a real testament to the growing focus in the plan sponsor community in helping to ensure employees' retirement security," said Lew Minsky, president and CEO of DCIIA.
"Over the years, we noticed that there were executives and companies achieving great outcomes by going the extra mile with their plans," said Amy B. Resnick, editor of P&I. "The program now recognizes both innovation and excellence.
Nominations for 2017 were closed on June 2, 2017.
