Award scheme recognising role in community is launched.
Business in the Community's Awards for Excellence 2004 aim to recognise businesses which are having a positive impact on the community, the environment, in the workplace and in the marketplace.
Companies of all sizes are being encouraged to enter for the prestigious awards, which are now in their sixth year.
Firms that can demonstrate a high standard of impact are awarded the `BIG TICK', now a widely recognised endorsement of responsible business practice.
BIG TICK companies entering from the North-East will be awarded them at an event in June next year.
The best BIG TICKs from around the country then go forward for national judging with overall "examples of excellence" being announced at a the Royal Albert Hall in July.
The Awards were launched yesterday by John McDonough, chief executive of Carillion plc, Business in the Community's Company of the Year 2003.
He said: "Being Business in the Community's Company of the Year 2003 has raised our profile and sent out a powerful signal to our stakeholders of the importance we attach to sustainable profitable growth and to delivering excellent services to our customers."
