EBI Consulting is proud to receive the 2020 Prism Award for “Champion of Change.”
This is EBI’s third consecutive Prism Award win: In 2019, EBI won the “Technology Award for an Environmental Consulting Firm” and in 2018, EBI’s Dan Spinogatti received the “Industry Influencer Award.”
Sponsored by LightBox, the annual Prism Awards recognizes movers and shakers in the property risk management industry, shining a light on creativity, innovation, service, and achievement. The “Champion of Change” category focuses on firms whose actions are directed toward creating positive change for our industry in some way (human element, technology, association involvement, education, etc.).
EBI Consulting won the category for their innovation and dedication to providing clients a full range of service offerings throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, while prioritizing the health and safety of our employees and contacts. Using technology like drones and smart phone applications to conduct site assessments virtually, EBI developed creative solutions to avoid exposing vulnerable populations at sites like nursing homes and adhered to social distancing protocols. EBI’s new strategies aim to minimize travel and maximize opportunities for social distancing for assessors, client contacts, and property tenants, all while keeping projects on schedule.
In addition to these technological innovations, EBI developed entirely new COVID-19 services to meet clients’ needs, including housekeeping programs, decontamination plans, safety protocols for on-site workers, and post-cleaning verification. “We’ve seen a new demand for services associated with COVID-19, and we’ve had to evolve. You just have to progress,” says Karla King, Director of EHS and Architecture/Engineering, EBI Consulting. “We definitely were at an advantage at EBI, being that 75% of our employees already worked from home. The stay-at-home orders for us were seamless.”
Despite this year’s challenges, EBI Consulting has risen to the occasion to provide the quality expected by clients while prioritizing health and safety. EBI continues to dedicate ourselves to collaboration, innovation, and unsurpassed service.
