We’re thrilled to announce that Visualsoft has been named a finalist at the BITC Responsible Business Awards 2016!
The news was announced last week at the Regional Gala held at The Marriott Hotel in Newcastle, after we made the initial shortlist for the awards back in April. Team VS was listed as one of the highest scoring shortlisted companies and as a result the team were invited to present to a small panel of board-level business and other industry experts in London in April, from which the overall winner will be decided. We’re up against four other UK companies including M&S, in the running for the Bupa Wellbeing at Work Award.
Finalists that were selected for the Wellbeing at Work Award demonstrated an excellent standard of impact to society and benefits back to the business. The judges also took into consideration the management process, including measuring progress and stakeholder engagement.
The BITC Responsible Business Awards are deemed to be the most prestigious and respected of their kind in the UK and abroad, and are championed by The Prince of Wales. The Awards demonstrate how businesses of any size, sector or scale are creating innovative and sustainable solutions to the most pressing challenges, inspiring thousands to make a lasting difference.
Considering this was the first time that we entered this set of awards we’re chuffed to bits with the outcome. Visualsoft entered with the approach that if anything it would be a learning curve for the team, but to find out we have been named finalists is a true reflection of the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make Visualsoft what it is today!
Award winners will be announced at The Annual Responsible Business Gala, held at the O2 in London on 11th July – Wish us luck!
