Business Excellence Award nomination deadline looming

The nomination deadline of Dec. 15 is approaching for the 16th Annual Vancouver Island Business Excellence Awards, set for Jan. 21, 2016 at the Coast Bastion Hotel in Nanaimo.

“The Business Excellence Awards recognizes the top companies from all over Vancouver Island in 17 different categories,” says Mark MacDonald of the Business Examiner, which coordinates the event. “It’s a great opportunity to recognize the hard work put in by businesses throughout the year and celebrate their accomplishments and stories.”

RBC Royal Bank, Hayes Stewart Little & Co. Chartered Professional Accountants and  Coastal Community Credit Union are the Gold Sponsors for the event. Category sponsors are Helijet, Thompson Cooper LLP, CIBC and Grieg Seafood.

Categories this year include: Agriculture, Automotive, Construction/Development, Entrepreneur, Forestry/Wood Products, Green, Health, Hospitality/Tourism, Manufacturer, Ocean Products, Professional (legal, accounting, insurance), Real Estate, Retail, Small Business (under 50 employees), Technology, Trades and Business of the Year (over 50 employees).

MacDonald added that making it through the nomination process to become a Finalist offers great marketing opportunities for companies for their recognition in the awards.

Last year’s event was held in Victoria, and the Business of the Year for over 50 Employees winner was Real Estate Webmasters of Nanaimo. Small Business of the Year for under 50 Employees was Hoyne Brewing Company of Victoria.

“Someone might want to nominate a business they believe is worthy of consideration for these awards, and all they need to do is email or call Business Examiner, and the business will be contacted,” explains MacDonald. “Self nominations are also accepted. It’s a straightforward process, and it doesn’t cost businesses anything to enter the competition.”
