Making it to the Top 100 Mid-sized companies list is a huge success for any company.
It’s worthy as it provides a company with the same benefits as what the top three winners entitled to, of making the most of Top 100 Mid-Sized Companies’ logo for whole year.
The leverage on the Top 100 logo guarantees the winning companies a continued trust, credibility that strongly enhances commercial ties between the company and its clients.

Top 100 awards experience in 2019
“This is our first time taking part in the Top 100 Mid-sized companies’ survey and we are fortunate to feature along diverse key sectors players across the country. The competition was stiff considering that to feature among Top 100 it was hard knocks. As a new entrant, the survey gives us hope that our contributions had been recognized in some way or another,” General Manager, Okoth Oloo said.
“We are very delighted that to be positioned at 84 out of Top 100 Mid-sized companies at our very first participation. We are proud of ourselves that at least we tried our best and this directly helps to build confidence of wanting to come back for more,” He added.
Our desire to participate in the survey is not only to win trophies but to explore our contribution significantly to the growth of country’s GDP. This is based on the fact that private sector is one of the major contributors of this country’s growth.
Thanks to the Top 100 survey that that brought various players together and dredge up “Who is doing what? Where? and their contributions to the country’s economic growth” and hence our very first participation in the Top 100 Mid-sized companies’ survey.
Benefits of the survey
I believe Top 100 like any other events has a galore of benefits to offer; and in our case, it brings our company to the fore with some reports from clients heaping praises on our recent presence.
The survey also sets high standards for us to walk through picking up where we left last time.
Our credibility is surely set to heighten and our board is very impressed with this milestone and we are looking to continue participating in this survey in future.
Lesson derived from Top 100
We have learnt that it doesn’t come easy; you need to invest in hard work to make it to the top spot.
Another lesson is that, being among the Top 100 Mid-sized companies doesn’t mean you are a way too far better than any other. Everyone possesses an equal chance to become the best company in their very peculiar fragments.
Areas of improvements
I would suggest that organizers of this survey, (KPMG and The Citizen, a product of Mwananchi Communication Limited) to share openly the historical background of the Top 100 survey to the new entrants so they understand its origin from the very first winners all the way to recent records of the event.
There is a dire need to make consistent follow-ups on the development of the historical Top 100 winners on yearly basis (from where they began to how far they have fared). This is one of the best ways to appeal and reach out to new participants.
Secondly, an intensive publicity of the campaign is very important. Sometimes, we face limited number of participants because of lesser efforts on publicizing Top 100 survey. With the courtesy of media convergences and multimedia, Top 100 Mid-sized companies’ survey deserved such tremendous publicity to attract as many participants as possible.
Third, they should ease terms and conditions for one to apply. Making stringent prerequisites would mount to fear and unwillingness to take part in the survey than having it in a very friendly and participatory approach.
Strategies for coming editions
We have decided to participate at future surveys with the aim of becoming first winners on the forthcoming Top 100 survey editions.
