Sheffield Business Awards, a note from the key sponsor

A host of the regions’ most successful and influential brands and business leaders came together last week to attend the 16th Sheffield Business Awards.

The dinner was once again well-attended by more than 900 delegates; with dozens of companies competing in 16 categories including the Evoluted ‘Excellence in Corporate, Social and Environmental Responsibility Award’, The Wake Smith ‘Excellence in Manufacturing Award’, and of course the ‘Outstanding Business of the Year Award’, sponsored by City Taxis. 

The strong turnout is evidence that this prestigious event continues to be one of the highlights of the region’s events calendar - providing not only an opportunity to celebrate yet another year of success for those businesses who have long called South Yorkshire home, but to also a chance to welcome an increasingly eclectic mix of new comrades to the fold.

As ever, the judges took the opportunity to comment on the calibre of the entries that they received this year, with the awards going to, amongst others, The SCX Group, Thermotex Engineering Ltd, Sheffield Doc Fest and Doncaster Sheffield Airport.

Marc Wildes, of P Wildes Group and Hotel Van Dyk, took home the Shorts Accountants’ Business Person of the Year Award, and REACH Homes, the cost effective eco-homes builder, received the overarching accolade of Outstanding Business of the Year.

Commenting on the awards Elevation Recruitment Group’s Chief Executive, Greg Parkinson, said:

“Year-after-year this event shines a light on the ever growing and diversifying business community in South Yorkshire – many of whom we are proud to work alongside to source and retain a dedicated workforce.

 “This is the 8th consecutive year that we have been main sponsors of the awards, and, as the event coincides with our 8th birthday, we were grateful to be in attendance to celebrate both the achievements of the region and our own business success to date.

“2017 has been Elevation Recruitment Group’s most successful year to date, in which we have enjoyed three back-to-back record-breaking quarters, resulting in a 31 per cent rise in gross sales. We are delighted that this success is matched across the region, as we congratulate the winners from Thursday’s event.”

Having further increased employee numbers in 2017, the business has confirmed that it will be opening a new state of the art office in Wakefield, which will increase the number of their dedicated Yorkshire-based operating offices to three.
