We’re thrilled to announce that People Puzzles has been shortlisted for two SME National Business Awards, which celebrate the achievements of small and medium enterprises (ie those whose personnel number 250 employees or less).
People Puzzles entered two award categories: ‘High growth business of the year’ and ‘Service excellence’- and was shortlisted for both.
Entering the ‘High growth’ category seemed appropriate after the extraordinary pace of growth that we’ve experienced in the past year, when we’ve seen our turnover increase from £1.9m to £2.8m.
However, we also decided to enter the ‘Service excellence’ category after finding that our ‘happy clients’ ethos had led to our net promoter score (NPS) increasing from 75 to 82 – higher than Apple, Amazon and John Lewis!
A 30-strong judging panel formed of CEOs, MDs, consultants, marketing directors and other business experts will now decide which of the shortlisted candidates will win their category overall. The awards will be announced and presented at Wembley Stadium in London on the 7th December.
People Puzzles has already been shortlisted for the CIPD People Management Awards in the ‘Best SME people management initiative (<250 employees)’ category, for the work carried out for the ambitious courier firm Today Team.
