The researching of nominees
The Innovation in Business team work ardently to identify the firms that are truly delivering and achieving great things for their industry sector. We drive many of the nominations ourselves and also encourage external nominations via subscribers, online visitors, social media followers, clients and wider circulation. Nominating parties are invited to put forward either third-party businesses whom they hold in high regard, or their own organisation.
The Shortlisting of nominees
All nominees are formally requested to accept their nomination. Should any firm or individual rather decline at this point, they are simply taken out of the running. Those who formally accept are given the opportunity to submit additional materials in support of their nomination. Although there is no obligation to complete and supply material, we have found that many nominees value this stage, in the process, and our research team find this very beneficial when determining businesses deserving of recognition.
Professional evaluation and judging of those shortlisted
Our dedicated research team will assess all information presented to them and also gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves. The research team casts their final judgment, based on various criteria including client and customer dedication, innovation, business growth, longevity, online reputation, customer feedback and business performance.
Once winners are determined, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies. Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, all who take part are encouraged to come back next year. Once the press embargo is lifted, details of our Innovation in Business award winners will be made public via the website, award winners’ magazine and subscriber newsletter.
Gain maximum exposure for your win
Innovation in Business award winners are offered a range of promotional packages which vary from inclusion in the free-of-charge winners’ directory, to trophies, content in our magazine and on our website. We encourage all winners to publicly announce their win independently. Announcements via company websites, social media, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are all great ways of maximising the exposure which can be gained from such an amazing achievement. If you have need of further advice, on how to gain maximum exposure from your win, please feel free to get in touch. We are more than happy to assist our clients with their marketing needs and initiatives.
