Employer of the Year Award:

Northamptonshire Business Awards 2018


Beyond Theory is delighted to be sponsoring the Employer of the Year category at this year's Northamptonshire Business Awards, organised by Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce.


Director and Senior Consultant Paul Beesley says: “We believe that work is a force for good; providing income, a sense of purpose and a social network for individuals to grow and prosper too. We know that it’s not businesses that 
succeed - it’s people that succeed.

“Therefore, Beyond Theory are delighted to sponsor the Employer of the Year Award. We look forward to celebrating the very best that Northamptonshire has to offer in terms of the achievement of business success through people.”

The Northamptonshire Business Awards are free to enter and are open for entry from Thursday 1 March to Friday 25 May 2018. The judging process takes place in June and the winners will be announced at the gala dinner at Park Inn, Northampton on 13 September. All Northamptonshire businesses are eligible to enter.

The winners in selected categories will go on to compete in the British Chambers of Commerce’s (BCC) regional business awards for the East Midlands, with winners from this progressing to the BCC’s national awards in November.

Here's the criteria for Employer of the Year Award

This award recognises organisations that demonstrate excellence in the promotion and implementation of a learning and development culture. Entrants for this award must communicate how this culture has contributed to the business achieving outstanding success.

The judges will be looking at:

• Why learning and development is important to the organisation
• How training needs and skills requirements are assessed
• Investment, commitment and support given to staff
• Direct benefit gained by both individuals and the organisation
