Motion’s Community Platform, Tech in Motion, is Fully Revamped for the 2022 Timmy Awards
08/04/22 by Motion Recruitment
Once again celebrating the very best the tech industry has to offer, Motion Recruitment’s community platform Tech in Motion is hosting its eighth annual Timmy Awards this fall. 2022’s awards will boast a few exciting changes like the return of the Best Tech for Diversity Award and a Startup Pitch-off Showcase, in line with Tech in Motion’s re-launch earlier this year that emphasizes building the most robust community in the industry for technologists to come together to build, grow and innovate.
“Being able to lift up community voices and members of the tech scene through the Timmy Awards is a highlight every year,” stated Mandy Walker, VP of Marketing at Motion. “To be involved with something that gives the entire tech industry a chance to take a step back and appreciate all we have accomplished in the past year is something I never take for granted. As the creator of Tech in Motion, we are excited to see who will be nominated or take part in the Timmy Awards for 2022.”
The 2022 Timmys: What You Need to Know
After the success and overwhelming positive feedback of our 2021 show, the 8th Annual Timmy awards will once again be an entirely digital affair on November 10th. Technologists across North America and all over the world will be able to come together from the comfort of their own homes or offices to celebrate the very best in tech.
“The Timmy Awards are one of the nation’s most prestigious recognitions for up-and-coming tech companies and entrepreneurs,” said Benjamin David Novak, Partner at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLC. “Receiving a Timmy Award is a badge of honor that can be worn proudly and a signal to the market of future promise. It has been a pleasure serving as a judge and speaker for this illustrious program."
Nominations are now open for this year’s awards, with a deadline to nominate on August 26th. The 2022 edition of the Timmy Awards brings the return of the Best Tech Workplace for Diversity award, which recognizes companies that treat diversity as a necessary ingredient for creativity and success. Winners of this award implement strategic hiring practices, explore and celebrate team member differences, encourage diverse thinking to produce an innovative product and/or service, and promote diversity at all levels of the organization.
This is in addition to the five awards from last year: Best Tech Enterprise Employer, Best Tech Work Culture, Best Tech for Good, Best Tech Startup and Best Tech Manager. To learn more about each category and its criteria, click here.
Also, like last year, companies and managers have opportunities for regional and national recognition. Finalists will compete for the Regional Timmy Award in their respective categories and city. The winners of these categories will be voted on by the local tech community, with Regional Winners moving on to the North American Timmy Award, where North American winners will be selected by our expert panel of judges.
2022 Timmys judges will again consist of experts across a wide swath of the tech industry. Previous years have featured judges from companies such as Google, Netflix, Oracle, PayPal, Slack, Salesforce, and many more.

About the "new" Tech in Motion Community Platform:
In 2011, the Motion Recruitment network of companies created Tech in Motion Events, bringing local tech communities together to share ideas and inspire one another. For 10 years, Tech in Motion has been dedicated to recognizing tech leaders and companies with an unwavering commitment to flourishing in an ever-changing industry. In 2015, Tech in Motion launched the Timmy Awards, an annual ceremony recognizing the best places for tech professionals to work.
In 2022, in celebration of 10 years of bringing the tech community together, Tech in Motion underwent a full redesign to evolve alongside the audience it serves. These changes gave technologists worldwide a platform to attend events, stay up to date on the latest tech topics, find new job opportunities, grow their professional networks, and be recognized for their achievements via the Timmy Awards.
“The tech world is constantly changing, and we wanted to make sure Tech in Motion is evolving with it,” said Emma Jordan, Events Manager at Tech in Motion. “What started out with a couple of pizzas and a case of beer has turned into the fastest growing community in tech, and that’s because Tech in Motion listens to its members and gives them a place to discuss, learn, and grow.”
