Over a century ago a Chamber of Commerce was founded for Northamptonshire. The motivation back in 1917 responded to the needs of the flourishing shoe industry. Of course, since the chamber’s foundation, the landscape of Northamptonshire business has changed. It has grown; and it has diversified. The Northamptonshire Business Awards remind everyone to support these changes.
Categories such as “Best Use of Technology” and “E-commerce Business of the Year” take an obvious celebratory stance towards forward-thinking businesses. They bestow deserving accolade upon companies that work to future-proof their industry. Notably, they also seek to reward the individuals they believe will have an impact on the future of Northamptonshire commerce.
The Northamptonshire Business Awards recognise the valuable input of its learners. Most apprentices are learning their craft or enlarging their skill set. But the Northampton Chamber of Commerce seeks to reward those that have excelled and positively impacted their industry.
The “Apprentice of the Year” award “recognises the rising stars who will become the business leaders of tomorrow”. This award recognises the successes and struggles of young people in their competitive markets. Moreover, it provides ample encouragement for those striving hard to accelerate in their chosen career.
This year, we are pleased to announce, our very own Ruta Hromova is among the nominees.
Ruta is an exceptional talent. She began her journey with PTS Training Academy in 2018 and has since become a vital member of the workforce. With a positive demeanour and true aptitude for the industry, Ruta has not only successfully managed important contracts, but has become an inspirational figure to customers and learners alike.
Undertaking an ambassadorial role, Ruta has combated the national shortage of female rail engineers by encouraging many young women to enrol on traineeships and apprenticeships. In truth, Ruta is the absolute embodiment of a rising star, and certainly stands out among the “leaders of tomorrow”.
If Ruta is an example of the nominees’ quality, then it is critical everybody supports these awards. Each training provider makes certain to encourage and reward their learners. However, it is equally important that industries themselves encourage young learners to excel within their field. The Northamptonshire Business Awards is a public way of championing distinct talents in Northamptonshire industries.
These extraordinary nominees are intelligent and motivated. Awards such as these encourage further development. Moreover, they encourage businesses of all sizes to look towards the markets of tomorrow. If uncommon talent is continually recognised by institutions such as the Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce, then both the learner and the industry will thrive in the years to come.
Regardless of the category, every nominee has earned their place at the award ceremony. Among them stand virtuoso employers and flourishing small businesses. Each has demonstrated their commitment to growth and to nurturing critical career paths.
They have all demonstrated their worthiness recognition. And that’s exactly what the Northamptonshire Business Awards offer. Each nominee has an aptitude for enterprise and a progressive inclination to improve their industry. They all deserve the acknowledgement. They all deserve the best of luck at the ceremony.
The Northamptonshire Business Awards should be viewed as a celebration. Not only for the winners of today, but the bright vision they grant the industries of tomorrow. Support for these awards is an investment. Regardless who wins on the night, it is important that this support is continued into 2020.
Please join us in wishing all nominees the best of luck on the night, and the best of luck in their careers.
