Does your business deserve recognition?

Outstanding UK businesses of all sizes and from any industry sector are being urged to apply for The Queen?s Awards. The awards are widely regarded as the UK?s highest honour for business success, and are the equivalent of a company knighthood.

Businesses who win a Queen?s Award receive extensive benefits. A survey of last year?s winners found that, in the first year alone three quarters experienced extra press coverage; 82% saw an increase in employee engagement; and nearly two thirds of winners in the International Trade category either increased their recognition abroad or generated new business.

It costs nothing to enter The Queen?s Awards, and companies have until 2pm on 30 October 2009 to submit their application. Entry forms can be downloaded from The Queen?s Awards website (www.queensawards.org.uk). Winners will be announced on The Queen?s Birthday, 21st April 2010.

Any UK-based business with two or more employees which can demonstrate outstanding and sustained commercial success in its field has a chance of winning a Queen?s Award. There are three categories of Award: International Trade, Innovation and Sustainable Development.

You can also nominate an individual for the Queen’s Award for Enterprise Promotion. If you feel that you have got something out of www.motherswhowork.co.uk, please nominate us, or the founder and editor, Joycellyn Akuffo! Here’s the link: https://applications.queensawards.org.uk/individual.
