How it Works

Nominations

Best and Brightest winners represent the most exceptional places to work. They are the companies and organizations who push operational standards forward, foster constructive environments, and display a commitment to their team members and community. If you represent or wish to acknowledge a company or organization who embodies Better Business. Richer Lives, Stronger Communities, nominate them as the Best and Brightest.

Evaluation

Great organizations create cultures where team members are inspired and have the opportunity to contribute their talents towards the overall vision of the organization. During the selection process, the Best and Brightest team works with nominees to identify their strengths and opportunities through an in-depth evaluation.

Participants’ practices are bench-marked against other participants in their region and across the nation. This multifaceted approach creates a rich assessment that provides opportunities for analysis reports, competitive comparison and educational opportunities leading towards tangible and direct ROI.
