Employee/Co-Worker Recognition through Philanthropist.com's Best of the Year 

One thoughtful way to recognize employees or co-workers at your company is through Philanthropist.com's Best of the Year. Anyone is eligible for nomination and recognition in THEIR STATE'S categories if:

 • they are skilled/accomplished in the work or activity described in the category name; and,

 • during 2016, they have done something that exhibits a commitment to a cause greater than themselves, such as giving of their time, efforts, talents, and/or resources to a worthy cause. 

Even more categories and domain names, totaling 200, are available for use. Outstanding individuals may be nominated by others, such as supervisors or members of your human resources staff.  Friends, too! 

So many companies, from small to large, have individuals who can be recognized in representative categories from the list below. In each state, winners will be selected and will receive:

 • An individual webpage celebrating the winning status -- SEE BELOW

 • A listing and permanent link in the Philanthropist Directory 

Your company can also add additional recognition including: 

 • Display of the individual's photo and/or company logo

 • A professionally written press release

 • A plaque celebrating the individual's winning status

 • An online photo album of the individual in action

 • A video featuring awards and accomplishments of the individual
