The Workplace Innovator Award, given each year by Step Up Savannah, recognizes a business that pursues innovation in the workplace for its lower-wage workers. The selected business understands the value in assisting their lower-wage employees (defined as those earning at or below $12 an hour) and has implemented creative programs or procedures to support their development. For profit and non-profit companies are encouraged to self-nominate. The winner is presented the award at the Step Up Annual Meeting at a breakfast scheduled for October 23 at Savannah Technical College
