Having knocked listings of 'best' and 'worst' companies in my previous post today, here's a list that we created!
Kidding. Actually these are highly subjective awards we've handed out after some considerable study and research, not a list generated by quantitative research etc.
On Tuesday evening here in London we handed out awards to companies our judges felt represented the strongest entries to our 2011 awards for responsible business.
This is not to say that all of them are the best in the world. We could only judge from the entries we had. Nevertheless, I think what we ended up with is a pretty strong set of winners.
Here's who won what:
Individual Leader category
Winner: Fabio Barbosa, Banco Santander
High Performance category (sponsored by Accenture)
