The Somerset Business Awards 2014 are now open for entries. Somerset Employment and Skills Board is sponsoring the ‘Skills for Growth’ award for the third year running, with support from the five districts councils and the county council. The award recognises businesses that have not only invested in the skills of their existing workforce to meet a particular business need, but have shown a commitment to developing the Somerset workforce of the future.

In total there are 14 award categories this year, each celebrating and recognising business success across Somerset, giving businesses from every sector the opportunity to promote themselves at the highest level. Entries close at midday on 29 August 2014. More information is available in a factsheet which can be downloaded here.

An Awards Awareness Breakfast will take place on Wednesday 30 July at Woodlands Castle, Taunton.  This gives businesses a chance to be taken through the Awards process step-by-step and see how previous winning businesses have maximised their Award win. You can book here.
