For more than a decade, Fast Company has been recognizing outstanding achievement with three different awards programs. Most Innovative Companies (March/April issue) celebrates organizations that are transforming industries and shaping society through paradigm-shifting products, insights, or services. Innovation by Design (September issue) focuses on individuals and firms that are addressing some of the world’s most intractable challenges through design solutions. And World Changing Ideas (Spring issue) highlights initiatives (products, concepts, policies, designs, and services) that aim to enhance life on the planet. The common theme among all three existing programs is innovation, a core Fast Company focus.
With Best Workplaces for Innovators, Fast Company recognizes companies that are successfully fostering cultures of innovation, encouraging employees from top to bottom to discover, explore, and invent. Fast Company is partnering with Accenture to create a series of questions and metrics designed to evaluate the role innovation plays in company culture and measure its effect on operations and performance.
This year, Best Workplaces for Innovators will also include an Innovation Team of the Year award, honoring teams whose creativity and passion have driven a major breakthrough for an applying company.
Every submission for the 2023 Best Workplaces for Innovators will be individually evaluated by a team of Fast Company editors and reporters. Finalists will be reviewed by a panel of judges (editors, renowned business leaders, and notable innovators) who will recommend winners.
