Reasons to enter
The ROI on becoming a finalist or the eventual winner is colossal and equivalent to receiving a very significant cash injection into your marketing budget, all you have to do is spend a little time (with your colleagues to lighten the load) completing the entry forms and then you can sit back. By riding the wave of your success and utilising the PR surrounding the awards you can increase your brand awareness and use it to your advantage to gain new business opportunities and break into new markets.
The entry process has the ability help you gain a 360 degree view of your business as you will be naturally drawn to review your business objectively and benchmark your organisation against competitors in key services and other areas that matter. This enables you and your team to adapt and improve to advance progressively.
Recognising employees for their hard work and contribution is a key element in any high performing business and contributes to good staff retention and team cohesion.
