New awards set to celebrate the best in business

A new awards scheme is set to honour the very best businesses in Derbyshire.

Johnston Press’ new bi-monthly glossy The Business Magazine is running a contest to discover the 13 best companies among the 55,000 operating in the Sheffield City Region, which stretches from Doncaster to the Derbyshire Dales.

The awards will honour excellence on a regional scale they must only be open to the very best - and this is where The Business’ endorsement by all the local Chambers of Commerce is vital.

Each of the 13 categories will be contested by the Chamber winners of that award in the last year. They will be joined by the winners of The Star Business Awards 2012, to make a shortlist of five in each category.

They are the companies and individuals that have already subjected themselves to exacting scrutiny, answered a battery of questions and gone head-to-head with their peers, before emerging victorious.

Such a win is rightly regarded with enduring pride.

Now, with the help of a judging panel drawn from leaders in industry and academia, The Business will establish who is the best of the best.

The Sheffield City Region business awards will be held at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre in Sheffield on Thursday July 4. Famed as one of the most prestigious venues in the region, it is a fitting host for such an important event.
