    About BEST Awards

    The BEST Awards recognize organizations that demonstrate enterprise-wide success as a result of employee talent development. We are looking for organizations that get it: They use talent development as a strategic business tool to get results.

    Established in 2003, the BEST Awards Winners' Circle includes small and large private, public, and not-for-profit organizations from around the world.

    Award winners must demonstrate that they are excellent in many aspects of talent development:

    • Talent development has an enterprise-wide role: involved in the executive team, creating solutions to business issues, and setting organizational strategy.
    • Learning has value in the organization's culture: learning opportunities for employees, C-level involvement, learning for growth of the organization, and innovation.
    • Learning links to individual and organizational performance: alignment with the business, efficiency, measurement of the effectiveness of learning, and success with non-training solutions for business needs.
    • Investment is made in talent development and performance initiatives.

    Award winners show that they are:
    Building talent
    Enterprise wide and
    Strategically driving a
    Talent development culture that delivers results.

    The application for 2023 recognition will open in August 2022.
