This Award is the highest accolade to be presented at The Lloyds Bank National Business Awards, and will go to an exemplary CEO who has successfully led a strategy for outstanding performance. A long list of potential candidates is compiled throughout the year to identify exemplary industry leaders from four recession-defying organisations.
Celebrating the contribution of mid-market businesses to the UK economy, this Award recognises businesses who continue to build on their success. Open to any company with a turnover of between £25m to £500m, who has demonstrated exceptional financial returns, strong growth and innovation strategies, and market prominence in its sector.
If you are a high performing, new company trading for fewer than three years with an innovative edge and something to shout about, this could be your award. The Lloyds Bank New Business of the Year recognises those companies that have exceeded their initial targets for growth and already show importance within their sector or industry through significant product/service innovation and leadership.
Celebrating the contribution of SMEs to the UK economy, this Award recognises the Small to Medium-Sized Business that has maintained consistent growth and strong financial performance, understands its customer, has an engaged workforce with effective leadership, demonstrated effective use of technology/digital media to engage with all stakeholders (customers, employees, etc.) and is continually innovating to support future growth.
This award highlights the role of the private or PLC companies, often in partnership with the public and third sectors, in addressing social challenges and improving the communities in which they operate. The Lloyds Bank Positive Social Impact Award will recognise those organisations that have achieved a meaningful and sustainable social impact through partnership, investment, pro-bono work, or through employee-led initiatives.
This award celebrates businesses that help their customers or clients to increase sales and profitability through a competitive advantage, recognising the impact of ‘enablers’ that offer value beyond products, infrastructure and services. These businesses improve their customers’ or clients’ efficiency, develop their talent and diversity and implement catalysing innovation.
Focusing on the contribution of a dynamic, creative and visionary leader, this Award recognises an enterprising individual who has achieved sustained levels of growth and strong financial performance through a culture of innovation, resilience and an ethos of inspiring others through their leadership style.
