Winning one of the prestigious annual Queen’s Awards is not only a chance for some positive publicity but can boost both sales and employee engagement. Winners have reported benefiting from worldwide recognition, increased commercial value, greater press coverage and a boost to staff morale. Commenting in 2018, Nick Geddes, CEO of GIS, commented: “This Queen’s Award is for all the GIS team, collectively recognising every individual’s contribution.”
Come to our event on 16th May and hear how the Queen’s Awards have benefited several businesses from our area, and how you can enter this year. The competition for the 2020 awards is open from 1st May, with the closing date being 10 September. This year’s award winners were announced this Easter.
