“The Best and Brightest Program prides itself on conducting a thorough evaluation of companies nominated,” said Jennifer Kluge, President and CEO, National Association for Business Resources. “The program has a ten to one ratio of companies that apply for the award. The process is threefold: nominees are vetted by our NABR research team; those identified as potentials are contacted; and employer survey data is then scored, weighted and ranked. The criteria is determined annually based on market conditions and trends and applied throughout the country. We are proud to honor this year’s winners.”
