Portsmouth Business Excellence Awards 2019
1st February 2019 saw the STR Group attend the Portsmouth Business Excellence awards.
Having applied for both Large Business of the Year and Apprentice of the Year, we were hopeful and eager to find out the results.
After a champagne reception we found our table and tucked into the delicious three course meal.
The awards presentation kicked off at 9pm. It was truly worth the wait as we were announced the winners of our first category – Large Business of the Year.
The whole table jumped up and cheered before heading to the stage to receive the award. Steve Saunders, Group Commercial Director, said a few words thanking the team and the judges, and made a few terrible jokes.
Our next category, Apprentice of the Year soon came around and unfortunately we were pipped to the post by Jess Moon from Digital Dinos.
However, our woes quickly dissipated as we were elated to find out that the STR Group had won Overall Business of the Year. This award is picked from the winners of each categories, receiving the judges’ top honours!
STR Group’s board Steve Saunders, Brett Stephens and Clive Hutchings took to the stage to accept this prestigious award.
“To win is phenomenal. It also marks the beginning of a new journey for our company. Last year was a tough year for us but this just proves we are stronger together. It is the start of a new future and we are very honoured,” said Brett Stephens, Group Operations Director.
We take pride in our business and the service we provide to our clients, candidates and employees. To have won Large Business of the Year is an honour, but to have also won Overall Business of the Year is an incredible achievement.
We are now more motivated than ever to keep pushing and building on our success, to ensure we are the best we can possibly be.
