About the selection process: For the last 11 years, Fast Company‘s editors have scoured the globe to identify enterprises at the forefront of their industries. For the 2019 awards, the Fast Company team has tapped into new sources & new data sets identifying new patterns. In that vein, the team widened the candidate pool to reflect today’s expanding innovation efforts across the business landscape. The "Wellness" category showcases companies that redefined fitness and self care. The companies honored were selected by over 3 dozen Fast Company editors, reporters and contributors and this was viewed as the most competitive selection year to date. Honors were selected based on their impact on industry and on larger culture.
