Best & Brightest Winners Engage in ‘Race to the Top’

BBlogoNewWhen it comes to a “race to the top,” competitions like Best & Brightest produced by the National Association for Business Resources, are among the very best ways to actively spur on organizations in some of America’s key cities and regions.

Here’s the big takeaway: Best and Brightest, whether it’s the Atlanta, Chicago, Houston or West Michigan events (the latest we’re able to highlight), simply make companies better. That’s the ultimate goal of the NABR, doing so in a way that provides entrants with valuable data, including benchmarked practices as well as tools and resources.

When companies get better at what they do, the lives of the people who work there become richer. Competing for Best and Brightest honors also has the effect of making the communities where they take place richer as well.
