The prestigious Leadership Awards salute the world’s top leadership practitioners and programs and highlight their roles in developing their most important asset – their people.

For more than 33 years, Leadership Excellence, now a part of HR.com, has identified and recognized the top leadership organizations and their strategies and solutions in a yearly ranking by appropriate category. This year, the ranking process and award categories were streamlined and updated to better define the leadership efforts nominated.

The complete list of this year’s award winners is published in the February edition of Leadership Excellence Essentials. The Leadership Excellence publication will also feature interviews from select top award winners in each category in upcoming monthly issues starting in April. These interviews will outline each program’s unique qualities that made them a Leadership Excellence Winner.

“Effective leadership development programs and activities are a must in today’s business.
