Evaluating outstanding achievers!
2011 was the launching year of a new big award: The Alumni Leadership Award. This event is a collaboration between JA-YE Alumni Europe and JA-YE Europe and in the first year 178 Company of the Year participants were evaluated, 30 achievers were interviewed and 15 ended up with the Alumni Leaders title. An alumni jury went to the JA-YE Company of the Year Competition in Oslo, Norway, and there they had the task of picking out the Company Programme participants with the most alumni potential.
The Alumni Leadership Award is given to the 15 participants that stood out as individuals during the Company of the Year Competition. The winners have to show great leadership skills, role model behaviour, team solidarity and the true alumni spirit.
This event will be a great new programme, not only for the participants, but also for the whole alumni network. The participants will get the fantastic opportunity to join a large European event organised by JA-YE Europe & JA-YE Alumni Europe in the following year, free of charge. The alumni network will experience a great influx of highly talented new members, the participants, and have the chance to carry out another European event involving active alumni from all over Europe and making the alumni network more visible in the process.
