The nomination process involves two stages. For the first stage, we require an up to 1000 word essay summarizing the candidates’ achievements in relation to five judging criteria. The Part 1 nominations will be reviewed by former Benefit Manager of the Year and Benefit Management Honor Roll® honorees, and finalists will be notified by mid-March. Finalists will be required to submit a detailed nomination form with separate sections for each of the criteria by early April. The nominations are confidential. Winners will be announced on BusinessInsurance.com in May and profiled in the July 4 issue of Business Insurance.
