Jennings and Barrett Sponsor Bexley Business Excellence

Feb 21, 2017

Jennings and Barrett proud to sponsor 2017 Bexley Business Excellence Awards category

Jennings & Barrett are the proud sponsors of the Commitment to the Community category for the Bexley Business Excellence Awards 2017 in association with Ocado.

The sales and lettings specialists, who have offices in Erith and Sidcup, won the Best Employer for Apprentices category of the Awards in 2014. Now they are delighted to be supporting a key category in these important business community awards.

“We believe that our community needs good local businesses in order to thrive and that thriving communities are a good place to do business,” said Jennings and Barrett Director, Joanna Bould.

“Jennings and Barrett have been a part of the Bexley community, and doing business here for over 100 years, and we believe that businesses who are committed to the local community need to be celebrated. For this reason, we at Jennings and Barrett are thrilled to be sponsoring the Commitment to the Community category for the Bexley Business Excellence Awards 2017.”

Now in their fifth year, the Bexley Business Excellence Awards in association with Ocado have 13 categories for entry and firms can enter as many as they like.

After the judging and shortlisting process this spring, the winners will be announced at a glittering black-tie Gala Dinner at the Bexleyheath Marriott Hotel in June.

There is a simple three stage process for entering:

1. Register – Register your business online at www.bexleyawards.co.uk, indicating which categories you wish to enter. You will be able to complete the questionnaires online and can enter more than one category. Businesses will need to answer six questions but do not need to provide evidence at this stage. The closing date for entries is Friday 17 March 2017.

2. Selection – Our panel of judges will select a shortlist for each category.

3. Judging – Shortlisted businesses will be invited to complete a more in-depth questionnaire. This includes four questions and requires supporting evidence. Businesses will also attend a judging day for a 30 minute face-to-face interview.

Entry is free. Detailed criteria for each category can be found on the website.

With expert local knowledge Jennings & Barrett is proud to be a local business employing and training local people. Joanna Bould commented: “We were first involved with the Bexley Business Excellence Awards in 2014, when we won the category for the best employer for apprentices. We have found supporting young people coming into employment an exciting and positive process and enjoy watching them flourish.”

The 2017 Bexley awards, organised by White Label, are supported by Bexley for Business, the London Borough of Bexley, the Bexley Skills Charter, Bexleyheath BID, Bexley Times, MiddletonMurray, the Bexleyheath Marriott Hotel, Your Move Petty Freeman, and Jennings and Barrett.

There are still many opportunities for businesses to sponsor the Awards, including the categories for the Gala Dinner. For further details please contact Vivien Newbould (vnewbould@bexleyawards.co.uk) or call 0208 726 7968.
