Through to Round Two of the BIBAs – Twice!

In our newsletter last month we told you that we were delighted to hear that Jones Harris had been shortlisted for two categories of the BIBAs and also in two categories of the E3 Awards.

A month on, we’re really pleased to tell you that on the strength of our performance at the interview stage, we’ve made it through to the next round of the BIBAs in BOTH categories in which we were originally shortlisted – ‘Excellence in the Use of IT’ and ‘Professional Services Business of the Year’.

Judging for these awards is rigorous – as it should be – so reaching this round means a lot, irrespective of the final outcome.

The BIBAs are Lancashire’s largest and longest running business awards programme, run by the North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce, and they are probably the best known of all the regional business awards. The first stage of the process is the interviews, followed by the second stage visit to business premises for successful interviewees.

When the judges visit our offices in Fleetwood it will give us the perfect opportunity to show them the completely bespoke, paperless computerised system which we’ve developed over the last 20 years. This enables us to conduct our business efficiently and accurately, and to put excellent customer service at the heart of everything that we do.

We strive for excellence in the level of knowledge and skills which we provide to our clients through a process of continuing professional development for all staff. And we strive for excellence in the way in which we run our business, in order to provide the best service that we can. Hopefully, this will be recognised in the final outcome.

We’ll find out whether we were successful in the E3 Business Awards on the night of the presentation ceremony, but you might like to have a look at these video clips which show all the finalists in our two categories.
