The accolades keep coming for Tom Harris, Managing Director at Live Innovations. The entrepreneur revealed this week that he had been nominated for the Young Business Person of the Year at the 2018 SME National Business Awards.
Mr Harris was the recipient of the Business Owner of the Year at the 2018 UK Sales & Marketing Awards in May, and this week, he received a letter confirming he reached the finals for the SME National Business Awards Young Business Person of the Year, reflecting his hard work, enterprise and endeavour in business.
The SME National Business Awards are comprised of 17 categories, and they allow any successful UK business to enter. All entries are judged by a panel of up to 4 people. The ceremony is scheduled to take place on Friday, December 7th at the iconic Wembley stadium.
The nomination is further recognition of the hard work and efforts of Mr Harris, and the business owner is delighted to have reached the finals. Business awards are a tremendous accolade of achievement. Mr Harris has stated what he believes to be the three main benefits of award wins.
An award win is a great news story for companies to share. At Live Innovations they have shared Mr Harris’s award win on their website and across their social media platforms, generating positive PR.
An award win is an endorsement by a third party which organically builds trust and credibility. Winning an award allows a business to stand out from the crowd, giving companies a competitive edge. Live Innovations operate in a hugely competitive market, and an award win and prestigious nomination is a great credibility builder.
- Talent Acquisition
Recruitment is a war. The best companies succeed because they can attract and retain top talent. Now in graduate season, Live Innovations are seeking to attract ambitious and talented graduates to their business. Mr Harris believes that his recent award win has had a significant impact on the firm’s ability to attract better quality candidates as well as retention of talent.
“When we recruit at Live Innovations I want people to know they will get a great career, training and mentoring. I like to think that the awards we have won and the nominations this year exemplify the success of the company and the quality of the team that potential recruits could be joining.” Commented Mr Harris.
Live Innovations is London’s premier outsourced sales and marketing company. The firm is committed to creating personal, bespoke campaigns to suit individual business needs. Mr Harris is excited by the prospect of adding to his accolades and filling up his awards cabinet.
