(PRWEB) December 04, 2012
Australian affiliate network, Commission Factory, has received a Highly Regarded accolade in this year’s Seventh Annual Cool Company Awards, the winners of which will be announced at an event on 6 December 2012.
The Cool Company Awards is a national program that was developed in 2006 to recognise Australian companies that are doing things differently to bring about positive change.
Over 700 aspiring ‘cool companies’ were nominated for the 2012 awards, making ‘The Cools’ one of Australia’s largest business awards programs.
“The Cool Company Awards are extremely egalitarian,” said James Tuckerman, Editor-In-Chief, Anthill Magazine. “Previous winners have included two-person start-ups, not-for-profit social enterprises, large private companies and publicly-listed corporations.”
“Judging takes into account far more than mere business variables, such as revenue and wealth. The criteria are geared to consider other qualities, from the disruptive nature of the product or service to the culture of the organisation.”
“Applicants either nominated themselves or were nominated by peers, work colleagues, family, friends and other ‘admirers’. A field of hundreds was examined (and cross-examined) before our judges were able to isolate three Finalists for each of our seven categories.”
“To be nominated alone was a great honour, and to receive this Highly Regarded acknowledgement in just our second year of operation has delighted our small, specialist team” said Commission Factory Director, Zane McIntyre. “It has inspired us to develop some exciting things that are in the planning stage, even some affiliate network firsts.”
“Next year we hope to take home one of the top Awards” he continued.
