Arizona's Most Admired Companies Awards

What Is The “Most Admired Companies” Award?

Most Admired Companies Award is presented by Arizona Business Magazine and BestCompaniesAZ LLC!


What is “Most Admired Companies”?

Arizona’s Most Admired Companies is a new statewide awards program designed to recognize the contributions and impact all Arizona employers bring to our great state. This will become the most prestigious awards program in the state, as they will be looking at companies that excel in the following four areas:

1.    Workplace Culture (as voted on by employees)
2.    Leadership Excellence (reputation of leaders in the community creating good will or having a positive economic impact in the community)
3.    Corporate & Social Responsibility (involved in giving back to and/or supporting the community and the environment)
4.    Customer Opinion (Solid reputation for delivering superior customer service as assessed by customers)

What are the benefits of participating?

As this program will be the most prestigious for Arizona, it will provide award-winning companies significant exposure and increased visibility on a statewide and national level as one of Arizona’s Most Admired companies. (see FAQs for additional details on the benefits of such award programs).

Who can participate?

This program will focus on highlighting companies with more than 50 employees across the state. These companies can be for-profit, nonprofit, private, public, subsidiaries or business units, government or state agencies, or charitable organizations. (see FAQs for more details)
