2024 BUSINESS AWARDS

Are you, or do you know, a successful and growing business/charity that is worthy of recognition and celebration? Each year, our Business Awards does just that!

Nominate yourself or a business/charity you know and celebrate success at our gala evening, where we will applaud the hard work and dedication of our wonderful community.
At Work Avenue, we know only too well how hard it is to start a new venture, grow it and make it viable.  There are so many talented and brave entrepreneurs in our community with a brilliant business idea who have the courage to launch their business and then work night and day to make it a success. In addition we also recognise how many charitable organisations are boosting employment.
Our Business Awards are open to all, whether you have engaged before with Work Avenue or not.  The awards are about recognising enterprising organisations across the spectrum of the business journey and across the spectrum of the community, and celebrating the invaluable and unique contribution each of them makes.
The awards will be decided by an independent panel of judges drawn from across the community.
