The National Business Excellence Awards, by the National Chamber of Commerce, recognises corporates that have excelled in business in the previous year. Contenders for these awards undergo a rigorous evaluation process over three stages which can take a few months to complete.

They are judged on the newly structured Excellence Evaluation Model of seven criteria, such as excellence in business and financial results; capacity building; performance management; local and global market reach; leadership; corporate governance; and corporate social responsibility and environmental sustainability.
