As preparations for this year’s Falkirk Herald Business Excellence Awards gather pace, we look at two more new categories seeking entrants for 2019.

Nominations are open for all 12 categories and we look forward to hearing from you.

Two of the new awards are Employer of the Year and Company CSR Initiative of the Year.

Employer of the Year celebrates organisations who recognise the benefits of investing in their people.

Nominees should showcase an effective employee strategy that attracts, retains and develops talent and how being an employer of choice contributes to business growth.

While businesses that have a positive impact on the commmunities in which they operate as part of a year round corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy are welcome to enter our Company CSR Initiative of the Year category.

In addition to a positive impact on communities, businesses should showcase staff engagement in fundraising, volunteer and community outreach programmes.

The winners of the 2019 Falkirk Herald Business Awards will be announced at an awards ceremony at the Macdonald Inchyra Hotel and Spa on Thursday, November 7.
