Launched in November 2003, the Annual Awards aim to promote the responsible behaviour of business in Bulgaria. The main objective of the Awards is to give credit to companies with remarkable record in the field of corporate social responsibility and encourage other business representatives to start or further develop socially beneficial activities.

The recipient is chosen by the International Business Leaders Forum and the main criterion is the level of employees’ involvement in the accomplishment of a project or the degree of employee contribution to social causes.
NEW - Diversity@Work Special Award: Starting in 2020, we will celebrate one of all entries in the six categories for embracing the values of diversity and inclusion at the workplace. The winner is selected by the Supervisory Board of Diversity Charter Bulgaria, a joint initiative of the Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum and the Centre for the Study of Democracy. Diversity Charter Bulgaria aims to encourage social inclusion and ensure equal treatment for all employees by fostering diversity thinking and implementation of inclusive practices in the workplace.
