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, including StrataTech Education Group.
“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.”
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.
