Are you harnessing awards to boost your business profile?


  • Is your business showcasing its expertise through winning awards?

  • Are you aware of the power of awards to open new doors and win business?

  • Do you know that awards help to attract the best people and boost morale? 

A clutch of award accolades for Vistage member companies reinforces how our MDs and CEOs are continuing to outperform their competitors in spite of the tough economic climate.

With six Vistage member companies (CTC Marine Projects Ltd, Entec Holdings Ltd, Sirius Geotechnical and Environmental Ltd, the Special Laboratory Ltd, Syco Construction Ltd and Wellburn Care Homes Ltd) included in the North East’s 50 Fastest Growing Companies, awards send out powerful success messages to all your stakeholders.             

As the demand for innovation is more crucial than ever in today’s brave new business world, could your organisation enter the prestigious Queens Award for Innovation and be acknowledged for its expertise, like Nick Heaton of Envirovent.

If being acknowledged as a great employer is key to your business strategy, there are a variety of HR awards you can enter, including the coveted Sunday Times Top 100 Best Small Companies to Work For. Vistage member Jacqueline Lennon of WAA Ltd made the 45th slot in this year’s listings.

Securing the top slot in the wide-ranging trade awards can also pay dividends. Business continues to flourish for Matthew Bent of Bent’s Garden Centre Ltd which has scooped the title of Garden Centre of the Year for a second time  – and a new restaurant and food service area installed at Fortnum and Mason’s by Mick Steele’s company Alan Nuttall Ltd went down so well that it scooped an award.

Awards are likewise not restricted to an organisation – they can be given to individuals and you can nominate your employees for them. One of the highest individual honours that can be bequeathed is the MBE awarded to Roger Evans of Schaeffler.

Everyone loves working and being associated with winners so make time to research the awards that will bring you business-boosting benefits – and buy extra cabinets to show them off!
