Judging | Business Categories
Finalists undergo a three tier judging process consisting of written submission, on site business interview and mystery shop. Each section is judged by two judges and all six scores are added together to determine the large and small winner of each category. All judges scores are included in the totals to maintain impartiality. The highest scoring large and small business across all categories is awarded Enterprise of the Year and Small Business of the Year.
Judging | Individual Categories
Outstanding Employee of the Year and Outstanding Business Person of the Year finalists are judged on their written application and a panel style interview.
