Awards Open in April 2020

Industry Insights

By Donna O’Toole

Welcome to the April edition of our monthly awards roundup!

We’re not going to pretend everything is normal, because we all know life (personal and business) is far from that for most of us. The coronavirus pandemic has caused unprecedented disruption and we’re all just trying to stay safe and keep afloat.

However, the importance and benefits of winning business awards still stands. In fact, maybe more so than ever.

The value, credibility, and huge boost that awards bring your business, product, employees and customers is just as important as it has ever been for business growth.

Winning valuable business awards will:

  • Raise your business profile
  • Build team morale and motivation
  • Make you stand out in your industry
  • Encourage new customers/clients to choose you
  • Provide fantastic PR opportunities

And so much more!

So if you find yourself with time now that you never had before, and you want to celebrate what you had ALREADY achieved (because awards look back at what’s already happened) don’t neglect entering awards during this period, take a look at some great awards open now.

The awards industry is adapting and changing due to the impact of the Coronavirus, but it’s all for the better and you can read more about this here.
