We’ve reached the final of the Yorkshire Post Excellence in Business Awards

We’re very excited and proud to announce that we have been announced as a finalist in the 15th annual Yorkshire Post Excellence in Business awards.

We have been shortlisted in the Outstanding Employer category that celebrates the employers who truly value and reward their staff, nurturing a culture that allows all employees to play a role in moving the company forward.

Our Head of People and Culture, Neil Barwise-Carr is delighted with the news: “We’re a proud employer of 184 local people and our aim is to make sure that we attract, recruit, retain and develop great people, and that Tong continues to be a great place to work.

“In the last 18 months, we have developed e-learning platforms, new appraisal schemes, enhanced staff benefits and improved communication and employee engagement, so we’re naturally delighted that our initiatives have contributed to our place in the final.”

We were one of 180 businesses entering the awards and now face tough competition from fellow Bradford business, Exa Networks; Leeds business, Thrive Law and South Yorkshire companies, One Medical and Mechanical Facilities. The winners will be announced at a digitally streamed ceremony on 4th November.

Of the awards, Greg Wright, deputy business editor of the Yorkshire Post said: “The wonderful, dynamic enterprising companies that have earned a place on the shortlist prove that our region is the best in the UK to do business.”
