Australian companies at the forefront of driving the nation’s progress have been recognised in Telstra’s annual Best of Business Awards.

Selected from more than 22,000 nominations of small businesses nationwide, state winners have been lauded for their significant contributions to the Australian economy and society.

Telstra’s business group executive Amanda Hutton said the state winners represented the “brilliant business minds our country has to offer” and were inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs.

“The calibre of small and medium-sized businesses in Australia is nothing short of exceptional,” she said.

“We couldn’t be prouder to celebrate the winning businesses and the people behind them, recognising their relentless efforts and incredible potential while inspiring the next generation of small businesses in Australia.”

The winners were evaluated on multiple criteria, including economic sustainability, operational effectiveness, technology adoption, progressive leadership, culture, and social and community contribution.

The program features seven distinct categories, each highlighting the specific achievements and contributions of the businesses.

State winners will head to Sydney on February 7, with national winners announced the following day.
