Yorkshire Business of the Year Awards: investment is key

The winners at the 2024 Yorkshire Business of the Year Awards

Investment is the lifeblood of business. It drives growth, increases competition, and fosters innovation and resilience, allowing businesses to expand operations, adapt to changing markets and sustain long-term success.

In turn, this benefits Yorkshire and the Humber, creating jobs and opportunities.

Each year, the Yorkshire Business of the Year Awards recognise the firms that have invested in their regional operations and talent.

Last year’s winner was Ultimate Commercial Interiors, which bought land in the Aire Valley to and built The Hive, an immersive 16,000 square foot workplace experience to showcase its best workplace design, and followed it up with significant investment in digital platforms.

The Yorkshire Business of the Year Awards are sponsored by family firm Tudor International Freight, RBC Brewin Dolphin, and Verlingue, with Campaigner as principal partner. Nominations close on 5 July, so download your entry forms and get them in soon.

Site visits to decide the shortlist will take place between 3 September and 22 November. Each shortlisted company will then be invited to give a presentation in Leeds in January 2025 to the judging panel who will select the category winners.

The awards will be presented at a gala dinner at New Dock Hall on 20 February 2025.
