Time ripe for North Shore businesses to compile entries for Business Awards

Now is the time for North Shore businesses to swing into action and enter the Westpac Enterprise North Shore Business Excellence Awards.

Local businesses are now starting to compile their entries - many with the help of one of Enterprise North Shore’s facilitators whose services are provided free of charge. Prospective entrants with queries about the entry process or wishing to arrange an appointment with an awards facilitator should contact Enterprise North Shore.

Entries into the Awards will be received up to 5p.m.on June 19.

Blackmore Excellence in Service Delivery Award Massey University Excellence in Technology Award 3M NZ Excellence in Innovation Award Tertiary Education Commission Excellence in Workplace Training and Development Award Telecom Local Directories Best Emerging Business Award Excellence in Export Award Actionmail/Alliance Construction Excellence in Marketing Award North Shore Times Advertiser Community Contribution Award TMP/Hudson Global Resources Employer of Choice Award Smales Farm Excellence in Environmental Management Award ACC ThinkSafe Workplace Safety Award North Shore City Council Excellence in Tourism Award

All category winners become eligible for the ultimate business accolade - the 2003 Westpac Supreme Business Excellence Award.

Enterprise North Shore Chief Executive, Terry Hoskins says compiling an entry is a straightforward process that is achievable for all businesses.

“Entries usually run from just eight to 12 pages and most entrants find the process of compiling them uncomplicated and great for staff morale and teamwork.”

Westpac General Manager, Bruce McLachlan says the awards provide entrants with an opportunity to reflect on their businesses.

“The process of entering is a great opportunity for businesses to evaluate their progress and reflect on their future. It is a valuable exercise for any company and, of course, there is the added bonus of becoming a finalist or a winner.”

Entrants traditionally represent a broad spectrum of businesses ranging from small emerging businesses through to some of North Shore City’s larger companies.
