The Port of Blyth has scooped a major National Business Award at a recent ceremony held at The Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
Fighting off stiff competition from across the country, the Port picked up the Health, Work & Well-Being Award for companies of up to 250 employees at the event Hosted by BBC News presenter, Huw Edwards.
The prestigious event was attended by over 1200 guests and included a video link to Prime Minister, David Cameron, whilst Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg gave the keynote speech.
Port of Blyth Chief Executive, Martin Lawlor, confirmed “we are delighted to have been successful at such a high profile national event and this National Business Award is due reward for the hard work and focus on the welfare of our workforce which has been put in over recent years.”
Training Manager, Colin Bassam, added “This can only enhance the reputation of the Port and its training division, Port Training Services, as providers of the highest quality of training and HR support.”
The National Business Awards is a flagship awards programme that recognises and rewards excellence across all sectors in the UK. Now in its 15th year, the awards offer recognition for excellence in business, regardless of size or industry.
