Dead­line for Sub­mis­sions to 2015 Business Awards is Two Weeks Away!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Oc­to­ber 24th 2014 is the dead­line date for sub­mis­sions to the 2015 St. Lu­cia Business Awards. 2015 marks the sixth year of cel­e­bra­tion of ex­cel­lence within St. Lu­cia's Business Com­mu­nity. The Awards re­ward ex­cel­lence in var­i­ous cat­e­gories and cel­e­brate the best qual­i­ties of Cor­po­rate St. Lu­cia. The Business Awards com­mit­tee con­tin­ues to seek ways to im­prove not just the ac­tual Awards cer­e­mony, but more fun­da­men­tally the process of the Awards so that it brings even greater re­ward to those who par­tic­i­pate in them.

One ma­jor adjustment to this year's cel­e­bra­tions is that the cov­er­age of the Awards was ex­panded and Pub­lic Sec­tor Agen­cies have been chal­lenged to par­tic­i­pate and make sub­mis­sions to the Awards in the Ease of Do­ing Business Sec­tion. The in­tro­duc­tion of this cat­e­gory is most timely con­sid­er­ing St. Lu­cia's change in rank for 2014 World Bank's Do­ing Business Re­port.

The Awards tar­get all busi­nesses whether large or small re­gard­less of sec­tor. Busi­nesses, es­pe­cially the Small to Medium sized cat­e­gories are en­cour­aged to par­tic­i­pate by vis­it­ing the Cham­ber's web­site at http://www.stlu­ci­acham­­ber_busi­ness_ awards.php or con­tact­ing the Sec­re­tariat at 452 3165.

The St. Lu­cia Business Awards will present awards in four­teen cat­e­gories. Th­ese are: Prime Min­is­ter's Award for In­no­va­tion, Award for Ser­vice Ex­cel­lence, En­tre­pre­neur of the Year Award, Young En­tre­pre­neur of the Year Award, Business of the Year Award, Goods Ex­porter of the Year Award, Ser­vice Ex­porter of the Year Award, Award for Ex­cel­lence in Hu­man Re­source De­vel­op­ment, Award for Mar­ket­ing Ex­cel­lence, Award for Cor­po­rate Lead­er­ship, Award for Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity, Green Award, Idea of the Year Award and Award for Mak­ing it Eas­ier to do Business (Pub­lic Sec­tor).

The short-listed nom­i­nees will be an­nounced by year end and the 2015 St. Lu­cia Business Awards will take place on Jan­uary 24th 2015.
