Small Company Achievement of the Year
The cooling industry is notable for the contribution of a large number of small companies, but because they are not able to shout as loudly as the bigger companies, they do not always get the credit they deserve.
This new Award aims to change that, specifically highlighting the contribution of small companies – defined as those with under 50 employees. Companies will be judged on their achievements, not specifically on their size, but the additional challenges of ‘micro’ companies (under ten employees) will be factored in.
The terms of this category are broad and can be entered by companies in all parts of the supply chain, provided they meet the size criteria. Judges are looking for evidence of all or most of the following: best practice; notable achievements; new initiatives; collaboration and innovation.
Testimonials are always beneficial for this category from customers or collaborators.
In 1,000 words or less, please tell the judges why your entry should win. Successful finalists will be invited to pitch to judges in the video face-to-face round in July.
Jan 2020-May 2021
Please consider some or all of the following in your entry:
- A clear description of what the company has achieved
- What initiatives have you taken to expand your customer base, or develop existing business?
- What innovations or improvements have you introduced in technology, best practice and/or training?
- Environmental benefits of the work
- Benchmarking, accreditation or testimonials
Use the criteria above as a guide, but any extra detail that will help your entry should be included. Additional material can be provided as attachments for reference, but the essential elements of the entry should be kept within the 1,000-words. Please do not simply attach the whole entry as a pdf!
