Institute to support judging of business excellence awards

Waikato Institute of Directors to support judging of business excellence awards

The Waikato Chamber of Commerce and the Waikato Branch of the Institute of Directors have teamed up to promote and further develop the annual Westpac Waikato Business Excellence Awards.

Waikato Chamber of Commerce CEO Sandra Perry said the Chamber recently undertook research with the University of Waikato Management School with a view to injecting fresh ideas into the promotion and organising of the Awards.

“We’re re-launching the categories, we’re re-launching the criteria, and we’re excited about the new look of the Waikato Westpac Business Excellence Awards,” said Perry.

“We’re very excited to have the Institute on board as part of the judging panel, and to work with the Waikato Management School who manage and oversee the judging process.”

Chair of the Waikato Institute of Directors Margaret Devlin said the Institute had been working closely with the Waikato Chamber of Commerce to see how they might be able to add value.

“We have agreed to participate this year through contributing to the judging process and encouraging our members to submit entries,” said Devlin.

“Working with Chamber chair Grant Robson, we have also contributed to an exciting new look for the awards. It will include categories that focus on company leadership and governance – two topics very close to our heart.

“We are delighted to have an association with the Westpac Waikato Business Excellence Awards,” said Devlin.

The Business Excellence Awards take place across the country in conjunction with local Chambers of Commerce.

The Business Excellence Awards give all businesses the opportunity to benchmark their success against other local businesses, including those outside of their own industries.

“We are looking forward to the awards in November and would encourage our members to submit applications. I am sure that they will be of the highest quality,” said Devlin.
