What happens once I have been
We will contact you to explain in more detail the process that follows.
You will need to 'accept' the nomination and sign a declaration form stating that you are financially viable, and you agree to the terms and conditions, including the judging of the Awards.
To help you consider the benefits we will provide you with a very broad outline of the areas that the judges will be asking about.
So what does the judging involve?
The first, and most important thing to know is that there is 'No Written Application' document. All judging is completed based on face-to-face meetings.
The preliminary judges will sit down with you (and any of your management team that you may wish to involve) and go through a systematic interview process that will take up to 2 hours. This is the extent of your commitment as far as time is concerned, for the preliminary judging.
If you are successful in this stage of judging you will be announced as a finalist at a Finalist Announcement Function held after the preliminary judging has been completed.
As a finalist you will be visited by the finalist judges (different from the preliminary judges) who will extend the judging process by asking some further more in depth questions on your organisation and will seek some detailed evidence of your financial performance.
At all times your financial information will be under your control and will not leave your premises.
Be assured that all information shared with the judges will be treated in strict confidence with all judges being required to sign a confidentiality agreement with you.
