BUSINESS LIFE: Community work gets a Big Tick.
Coventry Education Action Zone's Business Forum picked up the prize, along with three other city companies, at a presentation at Hagley Hall, Worcestershire, last week.
The Big Tick is awarded by Business in the Community in recognition of excellence in responsible business practice.
The forum, of 25 businesses, chaired by Jaguar, works with the action zone in areas such as Wyken and Bell Green, giving cash and support to schools and the community.
Chairman Jack Hynds, chief electrical engineer at Jaguar Cars and Land Rover, said: "I am thrilled that the efforts and inspiration we've put in has been recognised in this way.
Companies also receiving the Big Tick included Jaguar Cars, Broad Street Windows, and Axa Assurance.
