GEO Award recipients serve as examples of the very best in share plan excellence - celebrate the winners and discover why they were chosen.

The GEO Award Recipients

Since their inception in 2002, the GEO Awards have cast a spotlight on the industry’s highest flyers and strongest performers. They have become a byword for quality, class and achievement; the awards that everybody wants to win.

They highlight new and innovative approaches, outstanding examples of design, and celebrate the achievements of the businesses and individuals that are leading the way in this fast growing and vibrant industry.

The GEO Awards booklets explain each category and summarizes the award-winning entries. We hope that you may gain insight, inspiration and tips from each of the winners that you can take away and apply to your daily work.

Our GEO Awards Community

GEO Pioneers

The prestigious Pioneer Award is awarded each year to an individual that has demonstrated energetic and unflagging dedication to the development and ensured success of the Global Equity Organization.

The award is designed to recognize prolonged service to the employee share ownership industry and to acknowledge those that act as an ambassador for GEO throughout their daily activities.

GEO Chapter Awards

Whether you are meeting someone for the first time or getting reacquainted with an old friend, GEO’s Chapter Meetings provide frequent opportunities to share ideas and experiences with industry colleagues in your area.

Designed to enhance member value and to strengthen the industry, they are run by senior industry figures, all of whom already have demanding daily workloads. They deliver local content that make them especially relevant and valuable for attendees.

The often informal settings make for approachable and supportive learning environments that cultivate a sense of belonging and community with GEO at the core.

Each Chapter also brings wider benefits to GEO, helping to raise the profile of the organization and attract new members, all of which further promotes and encourages share ownership on a broader basis.

GEO Star Awards

As a non-profit organization, GEO is grateful to be supported by an army of dedicated volunteers, some of whom have been gifting their time, expertise, and efforts for more than a decade, and all of whom work tirelessly to ensure GEO’s success.

For going above and beyond to help provide our members with the resources they need to bring outstanding examples of share participation to their companies, these selfless and committed contributors are recognized with GEO Star awards.
