The Awards

The Raising the Bar Awards event is to celebrate and promote the good work that is done by countless businesses hoping to make a positive impact on their communities.

TheĀ annual awards event held in November features a keynote speaker talking about the importance of businesses acting responsibly and how measuring the impact your business has on its community and environment can have positive effects on your organisation and your staff. The event will highlight some of the excellent achievements businesses taking part in the Raising the Bar benchmarking system have made and see businesses receive awards for their contributions.
