Finding Industries to Research
Each month, we inquires from companies claiming to be one of the World’s Greatest. Our team reviews each application which often inspires our executive team to assign our Senior and Associate Producers to start pre-qualifying businesses in their particular industry throughout the world. They start by researching either a handful of companies in a niche industry to hundreds in larger industries.
Looking for Qualifications
Next, we validate each candidate's qualifications. We look at when they were established, are they a startup, a family business, or a publicly traded company? We eliminate companies that are involved with scandal, bad press, and class action lawsuits. We focus our attention on companies that go above and beyond in their industry and stand out.
Discovery Calls & Interviews
Discovery calls are brief. The Associate Producer’s goal is to identify if the candidate has an intriguing story whether they are an innovator, a leader, an expert, or another factor that makes them stand out. If they hear a story that they believe could be the next candidate featured on our show, the next step is a formal phone interview with the CEO, President, or Owner.
Announce a Winner
After each candidate is interviewed and has shown evidence that they will be able to meet all of the show requirements, the Associate Producers then create a unique PowerPoint presentation for each candidate that is pitched to our Executive Producers. The candidates that are chosen by the Executive Producers are based on a number of factors including the quality of the story, how much entertainment value the candidate will bring to the viewers, the enthusiasm of the company leadership, and the ability to prove that they will meet all of our production requirements.
