The Culture for Success Awards are designed to applaud the expertise, talent and passion in the region. This annual get together of North East businesses provides a great opportunity to network and party with the best in the region. This year’s event took place at Northern Stage which is always a great backdrop to the awards. This year was to prove that again with a fantastic reception, live band and networking after the awards, and was attended by over 200 people from businesses in the North East.
This year’s awards attracted more entries than ever before, which only goes to show the commitment of businesses across the region to maintain a culture that nurtures and invests in their staff, provides transparency to their customers and the drive to succeed in growing their businesses.
We were extremely happy to be shortlisted amongst some established, vibrant businesses and would have enjoyed the evening put on by Service Network regardless of the outcome. It was of course made just that little bit more special for the team here at Better for winning the small business category. For that we’d like to thank category sponsors for this year’s Awards; CCS Mobile, Cintra HR & Payroll and Gateshead College who came out to see us and the other shortlisted companies. The questions were probing and every aspect of the business was looked at in detail, such was the task they took on to evaluate each entrant on it’s own merit.
The Judges were kind enough to say, “Better, Teesside based brand communications agency and winner of the Small Business Category, has a very clear idea of the culture they are developing. They believe in creating a transparent culture, one that will work, both internally for staff but also, and just as importantly, for their customers. The judges felt that the team demonstrate real passion for their business, true integrity and are proud to wear their hearts on their sleeve. Better, who have been operating for just over two years, have already built up an enviable client base, winning contracts against much larger agencies. The company is now successfully working on new collaborative projects to ensure a sustainable business model for the future.”
We entered these awards because they aren’t purely focused on business performance. They are as much a celebration of the teams that work extremely hard to ensure the culture within Better and the other companies who entered the awards, continues to put staff and the customer at the heart of our businesses. Our pride in receiving the award reflects our pride in our people and the job they do for our customers. It’s our team’s award ultimately.
