IT'S 'A' for 'accolade' at the third North Hertfordshire College Business Excellence Awards this evening (Thursday).
They are being given out at the Goldsmith Management Centre in Letchworth GC.
Learners on a wide range of management and professional courses at the centre have been nominating their organisations for the awards which highlight and celebrate excellence and best practice in the workplace.
The awards are unique to the Goldsmith Management Centre which organises them as part of its Centre of Vocational Excellence (COVE) for Management and is delighted to be able to give the local business community the credit it so richly deserves.
Organisations are nominated in categories which reflect best practice. These include best employer for computer training, best employer for customer service, and best employer for putting training into practice.
The awards are sponsored by local organisations that believe in the value of training. They include The Comet, the Learning and Skills Council, the IEE (Institution of Electrical Engineers), Herts Business Incubation Centre and the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce.
David Williams, head of the business development unit at the college, said: "Once again we have received a number of high quality nominations this year and judging has been very difficult.
"These awards are an ideal way to identify good practice within local organisations and share it with others.
"Businesses can learn so much from each other and we hope that this year's winners will see an increase in morale and motivation within their workforce as a result of being recognised in this way as has happened with our previous winners.
