First there were the Cranleigh Big Awards - now meet The Waverley BIG Awards, open to all businesses in the borough.
The awards ceremony is at the Lythe Hill Hotel on October 19th. There is still time to enter - the deadline is September 1st.
The categories are:
PRESIDENT’S BIG AWARDS 2018
Each Chamber of Commerce will present an award to an organisation from within their catchment area. The judging criteria will be the same for all four Chambers. We are looking to reward and recognise a well-rounded organisation which strikes a balance between delighting customers, engaging and developing employees, innovation and social / community partnership.
WAVERLEY BIG AWARD FOR COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP 2018
We are looking for that organisation whose business ethic includes ‘giving back’ via the ‘Partnerships’ they have formed with the council and their community. If your Organisation and/or your employees creates and/or supports council/community projects, we want to hear about it.
WAVERLEY BIG AWARDS FOR INNOVATION 2018
Innovation can come in lots of different guises. It could be a new product, a new service, a new process, technology or something we haven’t even thought of! This could be a start-up with a brand-new product or service (our own local Uber or Airbnb) or an established organisation that’s found an innovative way of working with their customers.
WAVERLEY BIG AWARDS FOR CUSTOMER DELIGHT 2018
Do you have a reputation for ‘delighting your customers’? Is it the quality of your customer service, or the quality of the product/s you sell that delights your customers? Do you delight your customers in person or online – or both?
WAVERLEY BIG AWARD FOR EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT, EDUCATION & EMPOWERMENT 2018
How do you engage, educate and empower your workforce? What steps do you take to ensure your workforce is working with you as well as for you? What educational opportunities (such as apprenticeships) does your organisation provide? And lastly, how do you empower your workforce to influence success and deliver the results your organisation needs?
