IMPACT Award Nominations

Since 1987, the Greater Phoenix Chamber has honored the accomplishments of businesses and the impact they make on the local business community. The Chamber looks for companies with a strong footprint in the Valley that deserve special recognition.

Overview of Awards

The Greater Phoenix region is known for its thriving business community. Businesses innovate, advocate, and give back to the local community to drive our economy.

The IMPACT Awards recognize companies that are making significant contributions to our state. The IMPACT Awards program highlights small and mid to large-sized employers who excel in one or more of the following categories:

  • Community Champion
  • Economic Driver
  • Exceptional Workplace
  • Industry Innovator
  • IMPACTful Nonprofit (must be a 501c3 nonprofit)

Business sectors are defined by employee count:

Small business: 1-99 employees

Mid-to large business: 100+ employees

Three small business finalists and three mid-to-large business finalists will be named in each category and recognized at the Greater Phoenix Chamber’s IMPACT Awards event in June 2024. A community vote will determine the Business of the Year recipient in each category, which will be announced at the event.

Once nominated, companies will select the categories for which they wish to apply. Companies may submit applications for one or more categories, based on the areas of strength and stories they wish to tell.
