Launch of Fife Business Awards
Since its inception in 2012, the Fife Business Awards has given many enterprises in Fife local and national recognition for their achievements, and now the launch of the 2022 Awards gives many more the chance to experience that special feeling.
Four new categories are up for grabs this time, along with nine awards carried over from last year, including School Partnership. And, once again, one company will win the ultimate accolade of Outstanding Business.
The Young Business Award will showcase the region’s new business stars. Employee welfare has been critical during the pandemic, and this is reflected in the new Health & Safety Award and the Wellbeing Award. And, when we have all connected virtually, so the Digital Transformation Award has never been so relevant. The other awards are for Marketing; School Partnership; Community Partnership; Customer Service; Creativity & Innovation; Large Business; Training & Development; Sustainability; and Small & Medium Business.
Commenting on the launch, Alan Mitchell, Chief Executive of Fife Chamber, said: “The launch of the Awards is always special for us and never more so than this year. After a horrible year we will never forget, it is time for positive experiences we will always remember.
“With such diverse categories, everyone can enter, and you don’t have to be a member of Fife Chamber to take part. Any business, social enterprise, charity, or public sector organisation that can meet the criteria in a category can apply.
“Organisations that are not sure how to apply can get tips and advice by joining an online In the Know workshop. They take place on 15 June (1000) and 24th June (0900). We are grateful to the generous support of our Principal Sponsors Blackadders LLP and MHA Henderson Loggie, who along with the category sponsors, are making it possible for Fife’s business and third sector stars to shine bright again.”
The closing date for nominations is midnight on Sunday 26 September 2021.
