Lake Macquarie businesses have only 1 week left to enter the 2016 Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards.
Previous winners of the Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards are urging business owners and employees to reflect upon their achievements and submit an entry before it is too late.
Shayne Connell, Regional Manager for Cancer Council NSW and 2015 Young Business Person of the Year, believes the Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards are beneficial for all businesses:
“The Awards are the ideal platform to promote the great work of your organisation, recognise high achievers and attain tangible benefits for your business. I’d encourage all businesses in Lake Macquarie to consider a nomination.”
Many of the previous winners have expressed that the Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards are a great tool in building business credibility and solidifying external relationships. Rachael Sheldrick of GS Mechanical was the 2015 winner of Excellence in Entrepreneurship and was named the 2015 Business Person of the Year. Rachael has experienced measureable growth for her business which she partly attributes to the Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards and believes a win can be used to leverage joint ventures:
“The Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards can be so much more than just a trophy and certificate at the front desk. The Awards can give you and your business credibility – a seal of approval that encourages others to trust and work with you.”
The aim of the Awards is to recognise businesses operating within the City of Lake Macquarie who provide exemplary products, services and so much more.
Businesses that enter the Awards will have the chance to celebrate their achievements and the entry process can assist business owners with planning for a positive future. Being chosen as a finalist or winner provides valuable recognition of a business’ accomplishments, and being an Award winner is a profound acknowledgement of market leadership and achievement in business excellence.
The award categories for 2016 focus on a range of business functionalities including branding & marketing, business systems, workforce training and development, customer service, innovation, entrepreneurship, retail practices, workplace health and safety and sustainability.
Entries will close on Friday 20 May. Click here to discover the categories available in 2016.
