EUROPEAN BUSINESS AWARDS ANNOUNCES RUBAN D’HONNEUR RECIPIENTS
10 Jan 2013
Europe’s 100 Most Dynamic Companies Celebrated in Leading Business Awards Programme
The European Business Awards has today announced the names of the 100 companies that have achieved the coveted Ruban d’Honneur status in this prestigious 2012/13 awards programme.
Over the past two months, an esteemed panel of judges made up of European business leaders, academics and entrepreneurs has assessed the 200 companies that made it through to the National Champions stage of the awards. From these, 100 businesses from 28 countries across Europe have been chosen as Ruban d’Honneur recipients. They have been picked for their business accomplishments as well as their dynamism, focus and ethical standards.
Each of the National Champions was judged in one of ten individual award categories covering Innovation, Growth Strategy, Environmental & Corporate Sustainability, Customer Focus, Employer of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Import/Export and Business of the Year [t/o €0-25m], [t/o €150m+] and [t/o €26-150m].
Intensive face-to-face interview sessions with the judging panels will now take place before the ten overall category winners are announced at a gala event in April 2013.
This year, for the first time, entrants in the European Business Awards submitted a video case study as part of the judging process. All case studies were uploaded onto the European Business Awards website and an online public voting mechanism was introduced.
