The Innovation & Excellence Awards give recognition to businesses that are leading the way in their respective industries. Past winners have included multinational organisations such as Google and Apple, as well as hardworking regional organisations.
An “overwhelming” number of nominations were received this year and the judging panel had the unenviable task of selecting those firms, teams & individuals within each category most worthy of an award.
All winners of the 2017 Innovation & Excellence Awards are subject to the same rigorous assessment criteria, carried out by Corporate Livewire’s experienced in-house professionals. This ensures that only the most deserving teams, businesses and individuals walk away with one of these prestigious accolades. Award winners will gain a place in a soon-to-be published awards winners’ guide, which will be distributed to over 500,000 businesses and professionals.
Leah Jones and Elizabeth Moore, Awards Directors of the Innovation & Excellence Awards Winners Guide, were simply thrilled with the calibre of this year’s winners. Leah said: “The Corporate LiveWire Innovation & Excellence award winners have not only proved to be resilient and creative but have also shown a willingness to adapt to the ever changing environment of their respective fields; attributes that have certainly been key to the winners’ exceptional performance and success.”
By wearing a poppy, you aren’t just remembering the fallen: you’re supporting a new generation of veterans and Service personnel that need our support."Founding Director Richard Sheppard commented, "The 11th November is a day close to all our hearts and we are proud to support The Poppy Appeal and remember those who have served our country, and those who have lost their lives."
As an accredited Living Wage employer, we are thrilled to welcomes the increase in UK and London rates announced by the Living Wage Foundation as part of Living Wage Week (November 5th-11th 2017).
The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually. The Living Wage is calculated according to the basic cost of living using the ‘Minimum Income Standard’ for the UK. Decisions about what to include in this standard are set by the public; it is a social consensus about what people need to make ends meet.
Katherine Chapman, Director of the Living Wage Foundation said:
Greggs plc took up the charge and established the first ‘Greggs’ breakfast club. The Greggs Foundation now oversees over 430 clubs, providing a nutritious breakfast to over 26,000 school children each day, over 5 million each year!!!
The Greggs Foundation receives funding from a range of partners, often private sector companies including their major partner, Greggs plc.
Greggs Foundation uses the money to support breakfast clubs through an initial start up grant for equipment such as chest freezers to store food items or toys and activities for the club. They also make a payment each term towards other food items and Greggs plc donates bread from the nearest shop.
This approach tends to be very well received by our breakfast club schools, many of whom have worked in partnership with Greggs for over fifteen years. Schools tell us that they like the flexibility of the model, allowing them to tailor their club to suit the needs of the children that attend.The average club costs just £2,000 to set up and run for a year.
