Further to our last post sharing with you the exciting news that were awarded the title of “Promotional Clothing Supplier of the Year” 2020/21. We thought we would share some info on that organisation and what it takes to win such an award.
Background on CorporateLivewire
After many years focusing on business achievements at a global level, Corporate LiveWire recognised that the important work of small and independent businesses has long been overlooked by most international award programmes. To rectify this, the Prestige Awards was launched to celebrate the businesses and individuals that consistently offer excellent products and services to local residents, expats and tourist visitors alike.
The Prestige Awards team has conducted extensive research to identify the major cities and regions around the world with a vibrant SME community and independent scene. They believe that SME businesses are the backbone of any economy, whilst also typically reflecting the unique characteristics of its particular city or region. Osmaan Mahmood, Founder & CEO of Prestige Awards, said: “although small businesses may not be able to compete with multinational companies on their size and scale, there is a personalised service-driven focus that is often void from large organisations.”
With each destination having been carefully selected, Prestige readers are invited to nominate businesses that have proven to be the best in their market over the past 12 months. All shortlisted companies put forward in the Prestige Awards are asked to support their nomination with evidence of their work, positive feedback from their clients, information on previous accreditation and recognition as well as highlighting the most outstanding parts of their businesses.
The judging panel base their decisions upon areas such as service excellence, quality of the product/service provided, innovative practices, value, ethical or sustainable methods of working, as well as consistency in performance. The winners selected are those who can best demonstrate their strengths in these areas. All winners are featured in a celebratory awards magazine, published both digitally and in print, which is circulated to Prestige subscribers.
The Prestige Awards team is committed to identifying market leaders, innovators and enterprising start-ups through in-depth research, word of mouth and first-hand experience. We also encourage external nominations via online visitors, social media followers, clients and colleagues. Nominations should champion the best in their respective fields, representing the pinnacle of business achievements.
All nominees are formally requested to accept their nomination in order to be considered. Those who accept are given the opportunity to submit additional materials in support of their nomination. There is no obligation to complete and supply additional materials; however, it provides a useful opportunity to showcase your achievements and help our judges to better understand your business.
Our dedicated judging team will look at each case individually, and assess how your business has harnessed more effective processes, products or ideas in order to provide an exceptional product or service. The team gathers information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources, which are assessed alongside supporting material provided by a nominating party or the nominee themselves. The research team casts their final judgment based on the following criteria: service excellence, marketing and branding, industry recognition, ethical practice, and employee satisfaction.
Once winners are chosen, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made. This allows time for communication regarding the coordination of marketing strategies. Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner but all who take part are encouraged to resubmit nominations the following year with a number of previous winners having gone through the same process. When the embargo is lifted, details of successful Prestige Award clients will be made public via the website, award winners’ magazine and subscriber newsletter.
We hope that you found that interesting and gives you further confidence to choose us for your promotional branded clothing.
