Many businesses have sent in their forms already, but let’s make this year an even larger field of talent than last. Previous entrants have told us just how valuable it was to take a critical look at their business, and those who made it through as finalists were grateful to have an objective review of their organisation by the judging panels.

The Awards are an excellent way to promote your business, and just as importantly to demonstrate pride in your workforce. If you haven’t entered already, visit www.dorsetbusinessawards.co.uk now – time’s running out!”
