It’s official: you and your team have been recognized as one of Omaha’s “Best of B2B”! This esteemed award is a testament to your dedication, expertise, and impact on your clients and customers. Your commitment to serving other businesses has not only grown your own company, but has helped other companies achieve their goals as well. This aligns with the mission of the Greater Omaha Chamber, which is to serve as “the first stop for all things business.” Our goal is to help connect businesses in a manner that promotes growth in our economy. The way in which you operate and your commitment to excellence demonstrate why those connections are so valuable.
As it turns out, serving other businesses is a vital part of our local economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, professional and business services make up a significant 12.4% of the Omaha-area GDP—a whopping $9.2 billion. It’s especially exciting to see small- and medium-sized businesses recognized alongside larger corporations. The U.S. Small Business Administration reports that businesses with 500 people or fewer make up 99.9% of all U.S. businesses, and they play a crucial role in driving a majority of new job creation and nearly half of economic activity nationwide.
Being voted the best is about consistently delivering top-quality service and outcomes, as well as being adaptable and innovative. Serving other businesses requires the ability to identify opportunities across various industries, and a focus on innovation that drives business growth. As our business attraction and expansion team works to bring exciting projects to our region, the specialized services and knowledge of our B2B community make all the difference. Your success drives Omaha’s success, which in turn supports continued growth and vibrancy in the area.
Last but not least, let’s not forget that this award is ultimately a celebration of you and your team. Your organization has developed a unique combination of service, product, and professionalism that sets you apart from the competition. You have achieved a level of excellence that others can look up to and aspire to imitate. So, let’s give it up for all of this year’s winners—congratulations, and thank you for your invaluable contributions to our community!
