Businesses from across Manchester will be celebrated later this year at a glittering ceremony and Robert Walters is proud to be among the lead sponsors.
The 2021 Manchester Evening News Business Awards take place in November and entries are open until the end of April.
A range of sectors in Manchester will be recognised. International recruitment agency, the Robert Walters Group said it was important to celebrate the efforts of those companies which have managed to find ways to navigate through the past year.
It is once again sponsoring the £50m to £100m Turnover category , previously won by the likes of EDAM Group, Cardinal Maritime Group, Zen Internet and F Duerr & Son.
Robert Walters is one of the the world’s leading global specialist recruitment consultancies, working with a range of high-growth start-ups and FTSE enterprises based in Greater Manchester.
It is also a trusted hiring partner for employers looking to drive their business forward with the best market talent.
The awards, which honour businesses of all shapes, sizes and sectors, from long-established multi-nationals to start-ups, takes place at the Kimpton Clock Tower on November 18.
Lucy Bisset, Robert Walters director said: “We are proud to be a sponsor of the awards for the eighth year.
“We wanted to recognise regional excellence and support the breadth of Greater Manchester businesses that are driving the local economy.
“As a global consultancy with strong local ties, we’re motivated to help business leaders in realising their growth ambitions
“The success of a business is down to its people. We support businesses looking to grow by helping them hire intelligently and responsibly.”
Lucy said she would be looking past the financial markers of success and look for “passion and drive, and belief in a business proposition that has a wider social impact”.
Businesses have been making bold commitments to improving diversity and inclusion, by recognising and tackling inequalities that they’ve identified in their organisations, particularly over the past year, she said.
“Beyond the balance sheet, it’s about the hidden value of a business, which all comes down to innovative-thinking and a motivated, connected workforce.
“The awards facilitate growth - businesses are given a spotlight to reach new leagues of customers and make vital business connections,” Lucy said.
