Join us as we honor the best innovators of the year from the 2018 FORTUNE Best Companies to Work For, 2018 World's Best Companies to Work For, 2017 Best Workplaces for Diversity, 2018 Best Workplaces for Women, and the 2018 Best Small and Medium Workplaces at the 2019 Great Place to Work For All Leadership Awards on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 at the Four Seasons San Francisco. As a 2018 Best Workplaces winner, you're exclusively invited to submit a nomination for a chance to be honored at this invite-only awards ceremony!!
Why focus on innovation?In our recent study, Great Place to Work surveyed about 500,000 U.S. employees at nearly 800 public and privately-owned companies, most of them based in the U.S. Employees were asked how often they were included in larger, strategic decisions, whether they felt management was interested in their ideas and whether they were encouraged to try new approaches to their work.
The results were clear — companies that welcome ideas from all employees have better growth prospects than those with a less-inclusive approach to innovation. In fact, businesses with an Innovation By All culture see revenue growth that is 5.5x greater because they know how to tap into the innovation potential of all their employees.
What we're looking for.
- Innovations that resulted in significant, quantifiable impact on your business's success.
- These will look different depending upon your industry. They might include new revenue generation, significant cost savings, business adaptations and improvements, new market creation – any game-changing business opportunity.
- Across the leader nominees, we are looking to recognize a range of different types of contributions to innovation. We are particularly interested in including nominees who might not normally be expected to contribute to innovation – for example, front-line employees who have illustrated how companies encourage the ability to innovate throughout the business rather than isolate it to a research and development team.
- Companies of all sizes are invited to nominate their best innovator for this leadership award. We’re looking for a mix of industries, job titles, and innovations that have greatly impacted the business, regardless of its size or market influence.
Who will be honored?
Great Place to Work will choose the top Innovators and Innovative Team from those sumbitted. These individuals will be invited to attend the live awards gala on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 at the Four Seasons Hotel San Francisco to receive their Great Place to Work For All Leadership Award. Throughout the evening, we’ll honor the top 10 finalists from the main stage, with the top Innovator of the Year receiving special distinction and celebration at the end of the evening.
Submit your nomination below. Nominations must be received by November 15, 2018.
