Following the tremendous success of last year’s JCI Friendly Business Awards (FBA), which saw Perry Street Market Café as the National winner in the Category of Shop Layout and Design. JCI Cork are on the hunt for another city centre business to receive this deserved accolade or an award in any of our Six Categories.
There are six awards categories:
1. Community Impact
2. Customer Care
3. Disability Access
4. Digital Experience
6. Shop Layout and Design
In a city known, worldwide, for its hospitality and customer service there are several hundred businesses in its metropolitan area alone all serving customers in true Cork style. Which local business offers something unique to their customers, shows excellent skill with their social media interaction or offers something truly special to the community.
We are looking for Small/ Medium Businesses deserving of these awards:
“A small enterprise is defined as an enterprise which employs fewer than 50 persons and whose annual turnover and/or annual balance sheet total does not exceed EUR 10 million.”.
Nominations open on June 10th via www.jci.ie Closing date for nominations is July 8th 2016 Full details can be found at www.jcicork.ie
The winner of each category is in with a chance of representing Cork at the national awards later this year and become JCI Ireland’s Friendly Business of 2016
Aoife O’Donovan Director of Business and Finance and project lead 2016 has said:
The Friendly Business Awards celebrates and recognises the hard work of the Small Medium Enterprises in Cork. It is so important to our local economy that we give back and reward the Businesses that make an impact on Cork.
We could not run these Awards without our wonderful Sponsors; the Cork Chamber of Commerce, The Evening Echo, The Clayton Silver Springs and RedFM. I would like to extend a sincere thank you to our sponsors (the Cork Chamber, The Evening Echo, The Clayton Silver Springs and RedFM) for their continued support.
