We encourage all organizations to review the application and nomination form and work towards submission.

Nominated practices may range from a single, narrowly-focused activity to a multifaceted, multidisciplinary initiative, so long as the results can be clearly linked to advancing the organization's goals.
Nominated practices must show innovative practices and business results or outcomes.
The winning organization will be recognized at a luncheon at Windows on the River in May of each year, and will also be asked to present their best practice at an ATD Greater Cleveland program during the next program year. Previous winners include Applied Industrial Technologies, Dealer Tire, Vitamix, Autlman Health Foundation, American Greetings, Medical Mutual and the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland.
