Excellent business practices of the best business community

We are curious to learn from the best! Best business practices bring innovation, motivation, and collaboration for growth and progress to the Slovenian business environment. AmCham is therefore proud to publicize, represent and reward them.

The Best of the Best program was developed as a guide, inspiration and support in the transfer of new know-how and positive business experience.

Companies in the Slovenian business community submit their business practices to enter the competition. The Best of the Best committee, a group of exceptional individuals and spokespeople for good business practices, then look at the entries and select nine finalists, 3 for each category. The winners of individual categories become super finalists and vie for the title of the Best of the Best. Best practice of the year selection takes place during the final event in December.

All members of AmCham Slovenia, or a company in the Slovenian business community that has a recommendation from a member of AmCham Slovenia can apply during the application period.

At final event, festive edition of AmCham Business Breakfast, we presented three of the best business practices of 2023, and jointly selected the true one best of the best. The project by 🥇Young Advisory Board by Lek d.d., a member of the Sandoz Group, won the most votes. 


Lek d.d., a member of the Sandoz Group, strives to create an inspiring and innovative work environment that enables every individual to fulfill their potential. Thus, in 2020, Lek’s visionary project for young talents – “Young Advisory Board” (YAB) – was created on the initiative of young people to establish a direct communication channel between young people and the company’s management. Together with the YAB, the top management is acquainted with the views of the youngest generation of scientists and economists. This creates an interdisciplinary and intergenerational community whose diversity further encourages new ways of thinking and tackling challenges. Over the last year, the initiative has been adopted by broader society, connecting with student organizations, providing insights into the workings of the pharmaceutical industry, and sharing knowledge and best practices through mentoring at hackathons and summer schools, including international ones. YAB is the incubator of future leaders, and it can also serve as an example for other companies to effectively promote young talent and improve the work culture for future generations.
