Large Business

Sponsored by East Anglian Daily Times

The Large Business category is open to businesses from any sector of the economy which have an annual turnover of more than £5m – there is no upper limit.

The judges of this category will be looking for an established business which has been trading for at least
two years and which is able to demonstrate all-round strength.

Entries must include accounts for the most recent financial year showing a level of turnover in the range
required to be eligible for the award, and should also include figures demonstrating growth in sales and profitability over the last three years and details of the areas or markets where this growth has been achieved.

In addition, entries should cover the following:

People: evidence of best practice in HR and recruitment and a commitment to staff training and development;

Customer Service: evidence of an effective strategy for delivering a high standard of customer care;

Corporate Social Responsibility: details of CSR strategies, such as care for the environment, involvement in the local community and support for charities.

The judges will also consider areas such as leadership, branding and innovation.
