On Thursday 5th July 2018, AllenDay Recruitment picked up two awards at the SME Bedfordshire Business Awards and gained a place at the National Final, taking place at Wembley Stadium in December.
The prestigious awards took place at the Park Inn by Radisson Bedford Hotel where the theme ‘Glitz and Glam’ saw businesses from across Bedfordshire show up in their finest evening wear, ready to enjoy an evening of celebration and achievements. The night kicked off with some exceptional entertainment followed by a compelling speech given by the Awards main charity, NOAH.
Throughout the night, over twenty awards were announced on stage with each category celebrating a runner up as well as an overall winner. AllenDay had been shortlisted as finalist for three awards prior to the evening and eagerly awaited the announcement of each category.
The team jumped up in delight when AllenDay was announced as High Growth Business of the Year and joined the awards presenter on stage to collect the trophy and certificate. Having being chosen as the overall winner for the category, AllenDay had been automatically entered into the National Final which is set to take place at Wembley Stadium in December.
Believing that the night could not get any better, AllenDay was announced as the Runner Up for the Customer Service award, voted for by the public. Once again, the team went up on stage to collect the award whilst other businesses in the room showed their support with many cheers and claps to applaud the companies’ second successful award of the night. Overall it was an honour to receive two awards on the night and be recognised for the achievements AllenDay has made since starting up in 2015.
Director, Kathy Doran said “The AllenDay team is hardworking, ambitious and driven. Everyone in the office supports each other like a family and this has been fundamental to the success over the past 3 years. It was a real honour to celebrate our achievements last night and I hope this is just the beginning for us.
Co-director, Denise Day also mentioned “Picking up two awards last night was fantastic. It’s nights like this which make our job incredibly satisfying. I am very much looking forward to the National Final at Wembley”
The evening concluded with a team photo, lots of networking and a thank you to the organisers of the event. It was a pleasure to have been a part of the evening and AllenDay are now looking forward to the National Final in 6 months’ time.
