The Statement team have an extra reason for ‘that Friday feeling’ today, as it was announced this morning that we have been short-listed in the category of ‘Small to Medium Business of the Year’ in the Wakefield Business Awards 2014.
For the fourth year running, the Wakefield Express, in association with Chadwick Lawrence Solicitors, will be holding a glittering award ceremony to celebrate Wakefield’s most successful businesses.
This year’s categories include New Business of the Year (sponsored by Haribo), International Business of the Year (sponsored by Al-Murad), Business and the Environment, People Make Performance Award (sponsored by YPO), Innovation in Business Award (sponsored by Copiserv), Small to Medium Sized Business of the Year (sponsored by Thornton Jones Family Law), Community Enterprise Award, Business of the Year (sponsored by the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce) and Business Person of the Year (sponsored by Chadwick Lawrence).
There will also be an award for Employee of the Year (sponsored by First Choice Recruitment), to celebrate the efforts of an individual who goes above and beyond for their company, clients or colleagues. The winner of this award will be voted for by the readers of the Wakefield Express.
Whether or not we win the award, we are absolutely delighted to be short-listed, particularly given the wealth of fantastic small and medium sized businesses across the district.
In addition, we are thrilled to see some of our clients, including Green Peas Solutions, IndiaCoco and our community friends at Wood Street Market short-listed too!
Good luck to everyone, and we’ll look forward to seeing you on 26th June!
