Paul Rooney, Chair of Business in the Community Northern Ireland, said: “Yet again we have had a great response to these awards and from a wider range of companies than ever, suggesting that we are indeed deepening the culture of corporate responsibility in Northern Ireland, which is part of our aim. I know our judges are looking forward to hearing more from the shortlisted entrants in the next couple of weeks before they make their final decisions, which will be announced on June 9.”
He added: “For the past four years we’ve had to operate a waiting list, as the event has been oversubscribed, so I would recommend that if your organisation has been shortlisted you book your places now.”
Susan Kinane, Managing Director of Award sponsors, ESB Electric Ireland commented: “We want to see business grow and networks strengthen. Looking at other organisations that are going above and beyond getting the job done is inspirational and motivating. We are very keen to support this work and delighted to sponsor these awards.”
Five Northern Ireland winners of Business in the Community’s UK Big Tick Awards will also be recognised at the gala event in Belfast in June.
