We are thrilled that Bateman Groundworks has been shortlisted as one of 12 finalists in the 2016 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards. We’ve also just learned that we’re also finalists for the EDP Business of the Year Award as well as in the final three companies for the catergories of Investing in Future Growth and Corporate and Social Responsibility awards.
The results will be announced at two events in London and Norwich in November.
It is the first time we have entered a national award so we were delighted to hear we are finalists in the Small to Medium-Sized Business category of the Lloyds Bank awards, chosen from the hundreds of businesses entered across 18 categories.
It is a tribute to the teamwork of every member of the company, all of whom have worked so hard to contribute to achieve our year-on-year growth.
We appreciate everyone’s efforts on our 14 sites and are looking forward to starting on the other seven contracts we have in the wings.
It is even more gratifying that our work is attracting attention as we approach our 20th anniversary.
The awards were described by former Prime Minister David Cameron as “the Oscars of great British business” so to be noticed as a relatively small regional company is excellent.
This kind of national recognition makes us very proud of what we are doing, especially as it comes in the same year that we were recognised again, for the second consecutive year, as a London Stock Exchange 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain, which acknowledges the UK’s most inspiring, dynamic and high-growth small and medium sized businesses.
Commercial Director Jason Ramsey and Production Manager Lewis Nicholas made a presentation to a panel of expert judges in September.
Group Brand Director of the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards, Tom Broughton, said: “Due to the high number of entries for this years’ awards, narrowing the entries down to 140 finalists was a difficult task.
“But through a thorough and comprehensive judging process, the selected finalists demonstrate exceptional quality and diversity across a range of business sectors within the UK. We are now looking forward to the next step of the process and meeting some of the finalists face-to-face.”
