And the finalists are…
Posted on August 22, 2011
It has been a great week at The Curve Group. After finding out that we are a finalist in the Recruitment Business Awards for Best Candidate Experience we have now been told that we are down to the final four in the Fast Growth Business Awards for Service Business of The Year. Ian Wallis, editorial director of Growing Business magazine who run the awards comments;
“This year’s shortlisted finalists surpassed our wildest expectations. The companies that have made the 2011 shortlist for their chosen categories in the Fast Growth Business Awards ought to be immensely proud. Despite what you may have read about the state of the economy it was emphatically not reflected in the quality of this year’s entrants, with a higher level of competition for a finalist’s spot than we have seen since the awards launched five years ago. The rate of growth experienced, and the level of innovation and ingenuity demonstrated, show that British business has a huge amount to shout about.
“We fully expect this group of finalists – not just the eventual winners – to follow in the footsteps of their highly successful predecessors such as Lovefilm, Maximuscle and Multimap. While those companies were subsequently acquired by global giants Amazon, GlaxoSmithKline and Microsoft respectively in deals worth hundreds of millions of pounds, we see no reason why we won’t be talking about a major international brand emerging from these awards in future.”
The award for the RBA Best Candidate Experience will be announced on 29th September and the Fast Growth Service Business of the year will be announced on Tuesday 4th October, so please keep your fingers and toes crossed for us!Back To News
