Calling all business transformers! Insider is excited to announce the 100 People Transforming Business series is coming back for its 4th edition this November.
As one of Insider’s most prestigious and comprehensive lists, editors from across our newsroom nominate 100 exceptional leaders who are innovating, driving change, and challenging the status quo in 10 different industries.
This Year’s Business Trends
2022 has been a year full of global disruptions: supply chain crises, inflation, threats of economic
, political conflict, and lingering pandemic uncertainty. We expect many of the Transformers and their businesses to be heavily impacted by these concerns and more. However, one goal of the series is to highlight the people innovating around these issues and perhaps even using these problems to leverage new strategies in their sectors.
Categories for 100 People Transforming Business
Our categories this year are: DEI, Sustainability, Healthcare, Money, Supply Chain, Transportation, Emerging Tech, Shopping, Entertainment and Real Estate. While most of the categories are similar to past years’, Real Estate has been added to reflect how deeply the housing market is impacting large portions of the population. Before submitting a nomination for a Transformer, see the chart below for more detailed descriptions of what each category entails and which one aligns best with your candidate.
It may also help to take a look at last year’s 100 People Transforming Business series to see who made the list and gain insight into how our editors chose the Transformers to reflect the major business trends of the year.
This year, in addition to the editors’ top picks, Insider wants to know: who do you think is transforming business? We want to hear from our audience about any notable business leaders in your community who are transforming their sector. After careful vetting and confirmation from our top desk editors, the final nominees in this list will be featured in a Reader’s Choice section on the homepage of the 100 People Transforming Business website. All of the finalists will be contacted directly by a series editor and given more specific details on how they will be featured.
Criteria and Methodology
This nomination is open to leaders in companies of all sizes, and we encourage candidates from all backgrounds to apply. A major consideration for the Transformers list is prioritizing a diverse range of leaders. Transformers can be of any race, gender, age, and hold any job title. We seek to highlight a variety of positions, not just CEOs and high-level executives. The most important factor is that the nominees in this list should embody business transformation! We want to feature people who are finding new solutions to big problems, positively impacting their communities, and align with one of the 10 categories (descriptions above) the Insider newsroom is focusing on this year.
All nominees need to be submitted through the form below by September 26. An editor will be in contact if your nominee is chosen to move forward.
Please note there is no fee to be featured on the list. The Transforming Business series is an editorial initiative to recognize excellence within business. Being a finalist in the list is not an invitation for a formal partnership nor an opportunity for paid sponsorship.
