July 2023 – The Wakefield Business Awards. After an amazing first year which saw 13 awards winners from across the district’s businesses celebrated in style, The Wakefield Business Awards are back for 2023 and have secured another year of accreditation with the Awards Trust Mark – progressing to Outstanding status. Conducting themselves with professionalism, transparency and integrity, their clear scoring system elicits trust in their process and removes bias, ensuring entrants want to apply year after year. One entrant remarked: “We’ve taken part in a number of awards before and I have to say that the We are Wakefield have been the most transparent, and integral ones we’ve had the pleasure of working with…” Well done Wakefield, hopefully other regions will follow your example!
July 2023 – The Investors in People Awards. Celebrating the best in people, it is fitting to see that we too can celebrate The Investors in People Awards securing their Outstanding Accreditation rating for another year.
As one reference put it: “It doesn’t matter if you’re a household name or a small charity, The Investors In People Awards are given to those who have shown best practice, regardless of who they are or how influential their brand is.”
July 2023 – Global Good Awards. It is great to see the Global Good Awards re-accredit with the Awards Trust Mark at our highest accreditation level.
They are best summed up in the following refence feedback: “The Global Good Awards are unique in that they focus on impact, they recognise those projects and individuals who are rising stars, as well those who have ‘made it’ in terms of their results, and they are scrupulously fair, objective and demanding in the standards they expect from the finalists which top their categories. The programme really is a showcase of what ‘good’ can look like, and what others can aspire to, if they have the will and the purpose.”
Well done to the Global Good Awards, continuing to set the standards for other awards to aspire to!

They also have a well-organised two stage judging process for each of their awards, where judges look for evidence of innovation, enterprise and performance, including ongoing response to the Covid-19 emergency.
No charge is made for the use of logos or the promotion of a win. In-fact they provide access to a free toolkit that gives tips and advice on how best to achieve PR from their awards success – an example of best practice that other organisers may want to follow.
