Closing date for business awards looms

The closing date for the Wexford Business Awards is next Wednesday, April 29.

Now in their seventh year the awards are county wide awards recognising the entrepreneurialism, innovation, diversity and talent of businesses across all sectors. The awards honour Wexford's industry leaders through the acknowledgement of innovative business processes, product development, enterprise, sustainability and overall business success.

Central to the ethos of the Wexford Business Awards is sound environmental and green business practices and for this reason the awards take into consideration the green credentials of all entries across all categories. It is free to apply and is open to everybody who is in business. You do not need to be a Member of Wexford Chamber to apply.

New categories featured this year include Corporate Social Responsibility, Business Person of the Year and Networking.

In most cases, you will apply yourself for a category award. As a manager you understand there are many roles to play in achieving exceptional results, developing strong team dynamics and inspiring others to greatness. A self nominated application form will provide you with recognition of success, putting your business in the spotlight and an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of your staff and supporters.

However, you may also nominate somebody. Do you know somebody that inspires others, is passionate about management, develops the potential in others and is achieving exceptional results? Give them the ultimate recognition and nominate them today.

The recipient of the 2015 Business of the Year Award will be chosen from the winners of each category. Judging will be carried out by an independent Panel of Judges.

Applications should now be made online. Completed forms must be in by 5pm on Wednesday, April 29. An independent judging panel will review all applications received. Shortlisted applicants will be announced on Thursday, May 7 and advised of interview times. All shortlisted applicants must be available for judging interviews on either Wednesday, May 13 or Thursday, May 14. .
