Recent Winners

The Best Business Awards are one of the UK’s highest profile awards and winning this accolade will say a lot about the quality of your organisation and the strength of your management team. Due to their high profile, the Awards attract a wide range of entries from across all sectors from large international PLCs and public sector organisations to dynamic and innovative SMEs. But the winners all have one thing in common – they are truly excellent at what they do and have proved this by winning a Best Business Award.

We want to help you raise the profile of your organisation and enhance its reputation by promoting the great work you are doing while at the same time providing you with a platform to celebrate your success.

The Best Business Awards are open to private and public sector organisations of all sizes. There are four rounds each year with quarterly deadlines being the last working day of January, April, July and October and winners for each round hold their title for twelve months. Therefore you can enter when the time is right for you, as many times as you wish during the course of the year.

A popular feature of the BBAs is that unlike most awards we don’t hold an awards dinner at which winners are announced. So you won’t feel obliged to take a table for ten if shortlisted along with all the associated costs such as hotel accommodation and travel. Instead, winners are advised by email about six weeks after each quarterly deadline. We then offer winners benefit packages to help you make the most of your awards success and to make your budget work as hard as possible.
