Using NAI data, the Tools accurately assess and balance the factors affecting total cost, identifying optimal selection and cycling opportunities. More than 1,500 entries from companies of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration in more than 40 categories, including Best Overall Company, Best Executive, Best New Product or Service, and Best Corporate Social Responsibility Program. Members of the Awards’ Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and their staffs will select award winners this week from among the finalists. Finalists were chosen by business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in March through early May.
