Winning is a huge pat on the back for your employees - enter today
If you've got more than 20 employees and have been trading for more than three years - have you considered entering this year's Mercury Business Awards 2018?
This year marks the 13th Mercury Business Awards - rewarding firms and their employees across Stamford, Bourne and Rutland - and the surrounding villages - for their contribution to the community and recognising their successes.
Since launching our search for this year's winners, we have been inundated with entries but we are still urging large businesses to put themselves forward.
Readers who have had an outstanding experience with a local business can also put them forward for recognition.
Events and sponsorship coordinator Sharron Marriott said: "Whether you've got 21 employees or 1,000 - the scale of the business is irrelevant to success and achievement. We are looking to reward the firms that can do and make a real difference every day.
"Winning a Mercury Business Award is not just good for the business - it's a huge pat on the back for your employees. I am told time and time again by previous winners that it heightens the morale of staff, proving that their hard work is recognised, and very often has a direct impact on productivity.
"But this is not just a chance for large businesses to reward their staff - readers can also get involved too. If you've had a good experience by a large business in our area - and we know there are a lot of them - then why not put them forward? What better way to say thank you?"
This year's awards ceremony will take place at a gala dinner at Greetham Valley Hotel on September 21.
Established in 2005, the awards are the biggest part of their kind in the Stamford, Rutland and Bourne area and the event has gone from strength to strength.
