iSixSigma's 2011 Best Places to Work Nomination Submission

Thank you for your interest in nominating a company for iSixSigma's Best Places to Work.

Anyone can nominate a "best place to work," but nominators must know something about the place and why it is so great to work there. Places may include companies, government organizations, associations, nonprofits – anyplace deploying Six Sigma. Please read the eligibility requirements below. If the company you have in mind meets each requirement, continue to fill out the form. Only one nomination per company is needed to participate. Please do not nominate your company multiple times.

Note: No two operating units of a corporation with a central Six Sigma program can compete independently in the competition. Business units and entities of larger corporations may enter if they operate autonomously and have a Six Sigma program separate from the parent or holding company. See the complete rules and guidelines here.

All nominations must be submitted no later than July 25, 2011.

Places must meet the following eligibility requirements:

* Must be actively engaged in using the Six Sigma methodology.
Note: Six Sigma may be combined with Lean and other improvement initiatives. To participate, a place does not need to call its process improvement program "Six Sigma" but must use the methodology in its process improvement program.

* Must have a minimum of 30 Six Sigma employees.
(employee is defined as a full-time or part-time Black Belt, Master Black Belt or Deployment Leader role)

* Must have been using the Six Sigma methodology for at least 2 years at the time of nomination

* Places whose primary business is providing products and services to Six Sigma practitioners and organizations are not eligible to participate.

After receiving your nomination, data will be gathered through an Employer Survey filled out by the most senior Six Sigma leader, as well as an Employee Survey requiring a minimum number of responses from Six Sigma employees. Scores are calculated by combining the scores of each survey.

Employee Survey data is completed anonymously and only used in aggregate form, with the exception of anonymous verbatim quotes that may be published or otherwise shared.
