iomart is proud to announce that it has been shortlisted for the Corporate Citizenship Award for the 2015 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards.
The nomination for the award is based on iomart’s successful community sports initiative Host Your Kit which provides youth sports teams with free kits and sports equipment and the company’s work in encouraging young people and young women in particular to seek careers in the technology industry.
Going up against other finalists, iomart will compete for the prestigious award, with the winner being revealed at the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards gala dinner held on 10 November at Park Lane’s Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
Phil Worms, Chief Marketing Officer & Head of Corporate Communications for iomart, said: “It is a great honour to be nominated for the National Business Awards. As part of the tech community we are aware of the skills shortage in our sector and the need to encourage more young people into our industry. We are very proud that our efforts to do that are being recognised.”
An all-encompassing range of industries are represented in the shortlists for this year’s awards, with companies from recruitment and children’s clothing, to pet food and online marketing being selected for the chance to win a coveted Lloyds Bank National Business Award. The scale of the finalists is just as varied, with companies turning over less than a million pounds to over £25 million, employing 20 people or over 70,000 people.
Tom Broughton, Programme Director of the National Business Awards said: “The quality and range of this year’s entries exceed even those of last year, which is no mean feat. The draw of being involved with the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards has seen companies from all kinds of industries submit applications, which have been narrowed down using our thorough and comprehensive scoring system. We are now looking forward to the next step in the judging process and meeting some of the finalists face-to-face.”
Finalists were chosen from the hundreds of businesses that entered or were nominated across 18 award categories. They will now prepare for live presentations to expert judges who will decide the overall winners that will be revealed at the awards ceremony on 10 November.
