Businesses urged to enter awards Supreme winner: Prime Minister John Key, fourth from right, applauds as National Aluminium managing director Ron Holden congratulates his team for winning the business of the year supreme award at the 2009 business excellence awards. Time is ticking for businesses keen to capitalise on the high profile Westpac Auckland South Business Awards. Entry is free but the closing date of June 3 is fast approaching. It's the only event to recog- nise business excellence in the area and past winners rave about the benefits. Eight businesses were honoured in 2010 including entertainment scream park Spookers who won the contri- bution to the community award. General manager Julia Watson says the awards play an important role in fostering staff engagement and recog- nising staff achievement. Winning the award for our fundraising efforts for Ronald McDonald House meant a great deal to Spookers and especially to our employees,'' Ms Watson says. This award gave our staff ownership and highlighted to them that their efforts and kindness are admired and noticed by the greater com- munity.'' But the benefits aren't con- fined to winners. Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development spokeswoman Yvette Hellyer says simply entering is a worthwhile exercise. Writing your entry you can focus on your business and identify core strengths and competitive advantages plus gain valuable feedback from the high profile judging panel.'' Ms Hellyer urges busi- nesses to enter. She says it's a great opportunity to moti- vate and engage staff and cel- ebrate successes. The awards are an oppor- tunity to celebrate the many unique, cutting-edge busi- nesses in the south Auckland business community and show what this region has to offer.'' Participating businesses will gain valuable recog- nition, increased exposure to media and potential cus- tomers as well as networking and benchmarking oppor- tunities. They'll also gain important feedback on how to improve their business practices. Expert staff are on hand to give guidance with entries where possible. Enterprising Manukau facilitated the awards before last year's local government amalgamation but ATEED, an Auckland Council organis- ation, now fills that role. The Westpac Auckland South Business Awards cul- minate in a gala dinner at the Pacific Events Centre on August 12. This year's awards feature expanded categories and eligibility areas that recog- nise businesses large or small, urban or rural. Visit www.em.org.nz/awards for more information.
