We pride ourselves in delivering services that put people at the forefront of everything we do and we are delighted to see that this work has been recognised in such an important manner.”

“Today’s Responsible Business Awards shortlist represents the very best of business. Celebrating their stories helps raise awareness of business as a powerful force for good.” 

All shortlisted companies will be celebrated through a series of Responsible Business Gala events taking place across the country in June.

The Awards winners are announced at BITC’s Annual Responsible Business Gala in London on 11 July.
