Has your business made talent investments that directly link to your digital transformation strategy? Google Cloud wants to honor your organization for its dedication to developing your team’s Google Cloud skills through our *new* Talent Transformation Google Cloud Customer Award. Submit your application before March 31, 2023 to be recognized as a global leader in cloud talent transformation. 

Celebrating Google Cloud customer’s outstanding contributions

Google Cloud Customer Awards recognize organizations who are leading business transformation with Google Cloud products and solutions. We want to hear how you are growing one of the most important elements of your organization — your people! Tell us your story for a chance to win and enjoy benefits like:

  • A Google Cloud Customer Award designation for your website

  • Collaboration with Google Cloud leaders, engineers and product managers at a variety of roundtables, discussions and events

  • Google Cloud press release and announcement support to help strengthen your brand as a visionary leader in technology

  • Promotion through the Google Cloud results blog and social media to share your success story with our extensive customer and partner network

  • Inclusion in the annual Google Cloud Customer ebook

  • A place amongst the global leaders who are recognized at Google Cloud events and celebrations

How to get started and tips for a submission that will stand out

Tell your compelling and unique story about cloud talent transformation! This can include mentorship, skills training, Google Cloud certification preparation support or anything you’ve built to invest in your people's Google Cloud skills. To help your accomplishments shine, use the distinct voice and personality of your organization. You’ll want to begin by gathering:

  • Business and deployment metrics

  • Solution overview diagrams, workflows, architectural diagrams or images

  • Existing public case studies, webinars or other content

These awards recognize customers who demonstrate unique transformation and innovation, business/operational excellence, industry-wide problem solving, and implementing long-term, lasting benefits. 

You can add depth to your submission by asking stakeholders to share their perspectives — for example, your CEO or customer testimonies are great ways to do this.

Metrics and impact are also important. Share how your company is now faster, smarter, more collaborative and flexible due to the Google Cloud skills development opportunities that you provided.

Judging the entries and results announcements

A diverse panel of senior technical judges from around the world carefully assess hundreds of entries that are ranked using a scoring framework. We ensure high quality assessment through a three-round process, using specified benchmarks at least twice per entry. 

The Google Cloud Customer Awards team and the judges are the only people who see submissions, and winners are under embargo until official announcements take place. All participants will be notified of results via email at least two months prior to announcements, with results notification scheduled for May 31, 2023.

Results will be formally announced and celebrated at a special event later this year, where winners take their place amongst other outstanding leaders in innovative thinking and business transformation.

For inspiration and to learn more about the transformative organizations that have won Customer Awards with their visionary achievements, take a look at last year's industry winners. We encourage entry by any customers - new to established, small to large, across all types of products and solutions. 

Submitting your entry

In order to enter, you must be a Google Cloud customer, with success you can demonstrate within the last 12 months. Google Cloud partners and Googlers can also submit on behalf of customers.

Award categories include Industry Customer Awards across a range of verticals, and our Technology for Good Awards, which include the Talent Transformation Award. You may apply for one Industry Customer Award, plus any or all of the Technology for Good Awards.

Start by using this template to gather all of the relevant information as a team. Designate one person to complete the application and submit via the Customer Awards online questionnaire. The submission window is now open through March 31, 2023.

We are so excited to hear about the wonderful things you are doing to empower your teams to build upon their Google Cloud knowledge and skills — making you a leader in your industry. Happy submitting — get started here!
