Top tips to make your entry shine

  • Back it up with data

    We love data, so where possible, provide specific metrics to quantify your achievements. You can include testimonials from your team to support your submission with stronger proof points.

  • Think about the judges

    Specific judging criteria is listed on each Award entry page, so cross-reference your entry with the details to make sure you have the best possible chance. Each category panel has a mix of senior leaders from Remote, as well as leading influencers in the field of remote working (they know what they’re talking about, so you should focus on outcomes over theory).

  • Become recognized as a global leader

  • Showcase your expertise and innovation

  • Inspire your team to take pride and share in your success

  • Use your Excellence Award logo to attract top talent
