Unarguably, the last two decades have witnessed two major crises that have affected global output and downgraded profitability of businesses; a financial crisis in 2008/2009 and the current health crises (COVID-19). Both have invariably altered the various business environments and led to a new definition experienced in the business landscape. Thus, survival is the catchphrase for meriting such esteemed recognition in spite of the harrowing scenes which act as a testament of their resilience.
The Vaultz Media Research Team, in line with recognizing the ‘20 Most Outstanding Business Personalities’, carefully designed a methodology to select these business personalities who gracefully thrived in the midst of these circumstances over the past 20 years; a feat eliciting our successful compilation of the twenty top business personalities.
Selection criteria of personalities went through 3 main phases.
In a bid to achieve utmost credibility and fairness in recognizing deserving businessmen and women. The Vaultz Research team diligently dug deep into bringing out the best on the business landscape. In the first phase, a list of 100 businessmen and women who have excelled in their respective positions, representing various sectors and industries within the Ghanaian business landscape, over the past 20 years were carefully selected by the research team. Following this, these 100 personalities were meticulously drilled through apt critiquing and found to be of a ‘sound standing’ with ‘high integrity’ in the business landscape within the past 20 years and under the team’s consideration.
Having sifted through the throng of businesses in the country, the second phase involved a thorough background check on the profiles and business performances of the short-listed participants over the last 20 years. This involved analyses of key indicators that characterize how vibrant their organizations were performing. The variables considered include: Consistency in business growth, Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR), Tax Returns with the GRA, Employability, Innovation, and General Customer satisfaction with products or (and) services. The data collated witnessed participants who were later scaled down from the initial hundred to fifty for the next phase of the selection process.
The third and final phase resulted in the selection of the 20 personalities, who stood tall in the past two decades. We acknowledge that each personality recognized by the Vaultz team are distinct and unique in their operational models exacted in their various businesses.
