Inner West Local Business Awards 2020

Inner West Local Business Awards Winner – Most Inclusive Employer

Diversity and inclusion are part of our core values. We believe in finding the best person with the right skillset for the role and are committed to fostering a respectful and supportive environment for our team members. We are honoured to be named Most Inclusive Employer at the 2020 Inner West Local Business Awards.

The Local Business Awards are highly regarded as a recognisable symbol for excellence in business within the community. They are the most comprehensive business awards program in New South Wales, and they aim to develop and strengthen the relationships between local businesses and the communities in which they operate.

Finalists are selected through a multi-stage process based on the number of nominations they receive, and achievements in fields such as staff training, sustainability, and community support. In the final stage, anonymous judges evaluate the business on their ability to deliver on the fundamental principles of quality customer service. This award is a testament to the hard work of our fantastic team, recruited through our wonderful community partner Nova Employment.

The Gala Presentation Awards night was attended by 300 guests, including local businesses, sponsors, councillors from three Inner West councils, and Damien Tudehope, Minister for Finance and Small Business. A common theme throughout the evening was COVID-19, with many recipients sharing moving stories about the impact of the pandemic on their businesses. Andrew Wooley, our Business Development and Community Engagement Manager, gave a wonderful acceptance speech on behalf of the Club.
