Workplace culture now has to expand beyond office walls to include remote workers. Social responsibility is about issues that go way deeper than holiday toy drives. And customer opinion can pivot with a single social media post. A lot has changed in the workplace during the last few years. But through it all, 50 companies have risen from the constantly evolving and ever-challenging business environment to earn the right to call themselves Arizona’s Most Admired Companies of 2023.
“Most Admired Companies is the most comprehensive and prestigious annual corporate awards program in Arizona,” says Amy Lindsey, publisher of AZ Big Media, which publishes Az Business magazine and co-founded the Most Admired Companies program with the team from BestCompaniesAZ. “To be called a Most Admired Company, a business must demonstrate excellence in its leadership; corporate culture; innovation; customer relations; community engagement; and diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts and programs.”
Az Business magazine and BestCompaniesAZ team up to present the Most Admired Companies program each year and the primary goal is to find and recognize those organizations that excel in these five key areas:
• Customer opinion
• Leadership excellence
• Social responsibility
• Workplace culture
Based on those five pillars of excellence, a selection committee comprised of Az Business magazine’s editorial board, BestCompaniesAZ’s leadership team and professionals from a wide range of industries rated and selected the most accomplished and prestigious companies in Arizona.
Arizona’s Most Admired Companies will be recognized at a celebration dinner on Thursday, October 5, 2023 at Chateau Luxe in Phoenix. For sponsorship information, email Amy.Lindsey@azbigmedia.com.
