How it Works

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.
