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. The year’s best practice selection takes place during the final event.

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.

At Novartis in Slovenia, and the University of Ljubljana, they are aware of the opportunities arising from a joint mission and in that respect focus on activities for the development of young people. Their project Building a society of knowledge and well-being together ranked among the best in the ESG thematic set. Among other things, they made individual knowledge centers less reluctant to open cooperation, reduced bureaucracy, and enhanced the connection of experts in individual areas of expertise and the readiness of companies for long-term integration, which strengthens the innovative capacity of the participants and, in a broader sense, contributes to a higher quality of life for everyone.
