Just being involved (in the Awards process) gives your business credibility and adds to your corporate profile.  The process means that every aspect of the business is examined and everyone working in (and on) the business is involved.  It adds value, it boosts staff morale and confidence in the business, it means we’re consciously trying to be better in business every day.
