Call for award nom­i­na­tions

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

Strath­bo­gie Shire’s night of nights is on again on Septem­ber 1, when lo­cal busi­nesses are ac­knowl­edged for their achieve­ments.

The event aims to cre­ate a ba­sis to sup­port and en­cour­age busi­ness devel­op­ment, im­prove­ment and di­ver­sity and to help boost the re­gion’s eco­nomic devel­op­ment.

But the event is not just about the best busi­nesses in the shire. It’s also a great net­work­ing op­por­tu­nity for busi­ness rep­re­sen­ta­tives to get to­gether to hope­fully work to­gether in the fu­ture.

Nom­i­na­tions close on April 28 for the seven award cat­e­gories:

Em­ployee recog­ni­tion award: recog­nises em­ployee ex­cel­lence and those who go above and be­yond the call of duty.

New busi­ness of the year award: recog­nises in­no­va­tion and de­ter­mi­na­tion re­quired to start and grow a new busi­ness.

Tourism ex­cel­lence award: recog­nises on­go­ing ef­fort re­quired to at­tract vis­i­tors to the shire.

Ser­vice ex­cel­lence award: recog­nises busi­nesses that de­liver out­stand­ing cus­tomer ser­vice.

Mi­cro busi­ness ex­cel­lence award: recog­nises busi­ness ex­cel­lence in de­liv­er­ing qual­ity prod­ucts and ser­vices.

Medium busi­ness ex­cel­lence award: recog­nises pro­gres­sion, de­ter­mi­na­tion, team­work, re­silience and sus­tain­abil­ity of busi­nesses.

Large busi­ness ex­cel­lence award: open to busi­nesses em­ploy­ing 21 or more peo­ple.

Strath­bo­gie Shire Mayor Amanda McClaren said any­one could nom­i­nate any busi­ness in the shire and busi­nesses could self-nom­i­nate.

‘‘There is an on­line nom­i­na­tion form on­ness-awards or a PDF form can be down­loaded from the same web­site,’’ she said.

‘‘The judges are independent and do not have any busi­ness in­ter­est in the Strath­bo­gie Shire re­gion.’’
