The purpose of this award is to inspire people to help others grow, learn, and become leaders. By being a mentor, manager, leader, or guide to others we develop our future leaders to be Star Performers. People who become developers of others have a commitment to creating a positive future. By awarding role models for developing others we intend to showcase what it takes to create high performing teams and collaboration as a leader.
Organizations that are committed to developing their employees as managers, leaders and role models are participating in this award. We anticipate that organizations of any size and from diverse industries will participate. So far people from the following organizations have indicated they will be participating: American Express, Comcast, Dun & Bradstreet, Federal Reserve Bank, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Oracle, Pearson, and Sanofi.
