Winning entries showcase visionary leadership, innovation across the sectors, exemplary workplace best practices, and wide-ranging corporate social responsibility programs

Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America, today announced the winners in its 12th annual awards. This year’s program saw fierce competition among more than 700 entries from public and private companies of all sizes and representing all industries and regions in the U.S. and Canada, ranging from some of the most iconic global brands to the most innovative start-ups and resilient local companies.

This year’s judges highlighted the winning companies’ visionary leadership, innovative strides particularly in the uses of AI technologies, laudable employee diversity and inclusion programs and workplace best practices, and many winners' continued community involvement and monetary and time investments in their environment and corporate social responsibility programs.

“The entrants in Best in Biz Awards teach us again a grand truth about organizational karma: the rewards come to those who figure out how to give more, do more, be more,” said Dale Dauten, King Features Syndicate, having judged nine of the previous Best in Biz Awards programs. “These are the companies that you want to work for, work with, buy from and root for. They are the corporate equivalent of a life well-lived.”

Since the program’s inception in 2011, winners in Best in Biz Awards have been determined based on scoring from independent judging panels assembled each year from some of the most respected national and local newspapers, TV and radio outlets, and business, consumer, technology and trade publications in North America. Thanks to the impressive diversity of represented outlets and the unparalleled experience and expertise of the editors and reporters serving as judges, Best in Biz Awards judging panels are uniquely suited to objectively determine the best of the best from among the hundreds of competitive entries. The 2022 judging panel included, among others, writers from AdWeek, Computerworld, Forbes, The Globe & Mail, Inc., The Oregonian and Portland Tribune.

“The depth and breadth of this year’s nominees in Best in Biz Awards – and especially the winners – demonstrate savvy business acumen among the leadership and represent the type of entrepreneurship powering today’s economy,” said Dustin Klein, Smart Business, judging his first Best in Biz Awards competition. “I came away from the judging experience inspired, filled with ideas, and energized.”
