Australian Business Awards

The Australian Business Awards are an annual all-encompassing awards program which recognises organisations that demonstrate the core values of business innovation, employee engagement, customer satisfaction, experience management, business sustainability, product and technology innovation via a set of comprehensive award categories.

What’s involved?

In most categories, applicants will need to complete a written submission up to 4,000 words long that addresses the four evaluation criteria of the POEM Assessment Module; Section 1: Profile, Section 2: Method, Section 3: Execution, Section 4: Outcomes. Applicants should include supporting documents such as financial or business metrics, statistics, media coverage or other relevant information. Submissions are made online.
