celebrating a double win
ENS Recruitment and Training Services are celebrating a double win at the
2009 Southend Business Awards.
At an Oscars style ceremony in front of an audience of nearly 600 members of the Southend business community ENS were presented with the award for Growing Business of the Year, and Suzanne Dakers, ENS Operations Director, won Business Woman of the Year.
The awards, in their 15th year, are organised by Newsquest Essex, publishers of 33 newspapers across Essex, including the Southend Echo and Standard. In the face of fierce competition the final selections were made following 100 field visits made by the judges. In addition, Suzanne was subject to a rigorous interview by a panel of four judges.
Managing Director Allyson Abel is clearly delighted.
"The whole team deserves congratulations," she says, "But in particular Suzanne, who is an outstanding manager and did brilliantly. Every member of staff at ENS is acutely aware that the quality of our service can impact on the vulnerable - as a result, they are special people who are dedicated to providing the very best service."
The citation for the Growing Business of the Year Award highlighted the development of highly effective partnerships with clients, combined with ongoing staff training as being key to achieving around 80% market share locally. It went on to praise ENS's flexible, forward thinking and robust management and quality systems.
Suzanne's citation praised her business development skills and market knowledge, together with her commitment to going the extra mile to provide a quality service, adding that the combination 'balanced the task of increasing business and creating profit on the basis of standards'.
Allyson added, "I am very proud - this means a great deal to everyone at ENS, they are wonderful people to work with. We have maintained our focus on the provision of an outstanding service in the care sector through challenging conditions and this year opened a Commercial Division to bring the same standards to businesses and public sector organisations seeking temporary and permanent staff."
