It covers news updates, from GHL and its member companies, company information and a user friendly investor information category. The company was also an early adopter of social media, access to which is available from the website”.

The main categories include Best Annual Report, Website, Corporate Disclosure, Best Performing Company, the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ) /JSE Award for Corporate Governance and the coveted Governor General Award for Excellence given to the overall winner.
