Benenden Healthcare scoops Large Business of the Year Award
19th November 2010
Benenden Healthcare Society was last night hailed as York’s ‘Large Business of the Year’ at The Press Business Awards – held at York Racecourse.
The awards, in their 20th year, are organised by York newspaper, The Press and aim to recognise the Yorkshire-based businesses that make a real impact on the local economy.
Benenden Healthcare had been shortlisted alongside York Racecourse Hospitality and Gear4music.com.
Chief Executive Ken Hesketh was at the ceremony to pick up the award and in an interview afterwards, he talked about how the Society’s mutual values drive the organisation.
The judges were impressed with the depth of the award submission which covered a wide range of the Society’s successes in the past year, including the launch of a new Service Management System, growth in member recruitment, website development, increased services and support for members and investment in staff development.
The Society also recently celebrated its own 20th anniversary of moving headquarters to York from London.
