ERIKS Shortlisted for the BITC Wellbeing Award

BITC

ERIKS UK has been shortlisted in the 2016 Responsible Business Awards, the most prestigious and rigourous awards championing responsible business at home and abroad.
Driven by the charity Business in the Community (BITC), HRH The Prince of Wales’ Responsible Business Network, the 2016 Responsible Business Awards celebrate inspiring examples of businesses that are making a significant difference by taking action to improve their local communities, create more inclusive workplaces and tackle environmental challenges.

The announcement of the 2016 Responsible Business Awards shortlist coincides with Responsible Business Week (18-22 April 2016) an annual initiative to increase awareness of the positive contribution of business in society.

Business in the Community received 297 entries for the Responsible Business Awards, shortlisted 103 and re-accredited a further 82 entries for demonstrating continual impact in their responsible business programme.

ERIKS UK was recognised for their Global TRI2015 Wellbeing Challenge in the Bupa Wellbeing at Work Award.

Commenting, Denny Wood, Group HR Director, ERIKS UK, said, "We are thrilled at this acknowledgement and want to thank all of those that took part, across the globe, in helping us create an award winning initiative!" Stephen Howard, Chief Executive, Business in the Community said, "We know that every day businesses contribute towards more resilient communities, stimulate local economies, help to create skilled and healthy workforces and tackle environmental challenges. But more companies need to share these ideas and actions to grow the responsible business movement in the UK and abroad, which is why we launched Responsible Business Week".

"Today’s Responsible Business Awards shortlist represents the very best of business. Celebrating their stories helps raise awareness of business as a powerful force for good."

Now in its 19th year, the Responsible Business Awards are open to companies of all sizes, from SMEs to multi-nationals, and across all sectors. Categories cover a wide range of positive business activities, from investing in the health and wellbeing of employees, nurturing young people to develop skills, supporting rural communities and more disadvantaged members of society, to helping the resilience of communities in the face of international disasters.

All shortlisted companies will be celebrated through a series of Responsible Business Gala events taking place across the country in June.

The Award Winners are announced at BITC’s Annual Responsible Business Gala at the O2 in London on 11 July, hosted by Fujitsu (2015 Responsible Business of the Year).
