IAOP's recognition and awards programs acknowledge organizations and individuals whose decisive actions have led to substantial transformation or change at their company, and in the case of the Leadership Hall of Fame, our industry. Judges generally look for innovative and progressive thinking, applicants that deliver strong returns to shareholders, nominees who are improving environmental efficiencies, implementing technological advances, and displaying a commitment to sustainable, forward-thinking solutions.
Each award has its own set of criteria and rules. See below for information on each specific award.
