Employee Benefit News is now accepting nominations for its Digital Innovators Awards, which recognize individuals leading the digital transformation of the HR and benefits industry. Winners will be featured in upcoming online and print editions of EBN.

Digital Innovator nominations are open to employee benefit professionals; HR executives; benefit and HR technology company executives; benefit advisers, brokers and consultants; and others at the leading-edge of HR and benefits technology development, adoption and deployment.

Along with editors from Employee Benefit Adviser, EBN editors will review nominations, looking for individuals who are using technology to disrupt the industry and create new offerings for employees and employers.

Some of last year’s winners included Carolyn Gordon, director of benefits at Fujifilm; David Klein, co-founder and CEO of student loan company CommonBond and Ofer Leidner, co-founder and president of mental health platform Happify.
