“It made absolute sense for us to remain involved, and I am delighted that we will be the headline sponsor for the 2019 awards.
The awards categories are Small Business of the Year; Best Use of Technology; High Growth Business of the Year; Workplace Wellbeing Award; Customer Commitment Award; E-commerce Business of the Year; Exporter of the Year; Employer of the Year and Apprentice of the Year.
