Community InvolvementSponsored by Adnams
The Community Involvement award is aimed at commercial businesses than can demonstrate how they combine business success with involvement in their community, in ways which go beyond their core business strategy.
Entrants should consistently demonstrate good citizenship and show commitment outside normal business practice to people, places and events that are not directly aimed at improving their own business profile. In particular, the judges will be looking for:
Initiative – give examples of local projects that your business has been instrumental in initiating or in which it has had a leading role from the outset;
Company Involvement – give evidence of the support of the company management in supporting community or charity projects and whether staff are actively encouraged to become involved. Are there staff incentives to support community projects and charities?;
Impact – give details of how projects in which you have been actively involved have directly benefited the local community;
Education – does your business support local education, whether at primary, secondary, further or higher level?
"The judges of the East Anglian Daily Times Business Awards are always hugely impressed by both the quality and the diversity of the firms to be found in the region. We are sure 2015 will prove to be no exception."Terry HuntEditor, East Anglian Daily Times
