VR presented the Company of the Year 2022 at a well attended reception Thursday 19 May 2022. This year a total of sixteen companies will receive this title and almost another fifty the title Model Company of the Year 2022. The President of VR, Ragnar Þór Ingólfsson and Katrín Jakobsdóttir, Prime Minister of Iceland, presented the awards.
The Companies of the Year 2022 are as follows:
- In the category of companies with fewer than 30 employees:
- Farmers Market
- Íslensk getspá
- Kringlan Management Company

A survey was done for nearly 40,000 individuals in the general labour market, both for members of VR and other employees of those companies that guaranteed all employees the right to participate, regardless of trade union membership. More than eleven thousand employees answered the survey. Only companies that guaranteed all employees the right to participate were considered in the selection for the title of Company of the Year or Model Company, but these are the companies that are in the top fifteen in the three size categories.
