The SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards are set to take place this month and Paydata is excited to be announced as a finalist in the Employer of the Year category. Here at Paydata, we know the benefits of looking after our employees and we are thrilled that our hard work is reflected in this nomination.

What are the SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards?

The SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards are a celebration of the hard-working Small-Medium business enterprises within the Cambridgeshire area. Business awards are an excellent record of achievement and are an official endorsement of your business' strengths and successes. Getting nominated can lead to positive marketing and PR opportunities and is an efficient way to build trust with your customers. There are 16 categories in total including several hospitality awards for Pub of the Year and Restaurant of the Year.

Why we are a SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards Employer of the Year Finalist.

Being shortlisted for ‘The employer of the year’, really shows that we are true to our company’s cause of ‘making lives better at work’, not just for our customers, but for our own employees as well. We offer flexible working, encouraging part time workers to join us, salary sacrifice to build up extra day’s holiday, parental support, employee mental health support and an annual paid for weekend trip to Europe to celebrate success. Over the last year we have introduced an extensive business learning and development programme in which all staff can participate. Our L+D programme has further boosted morale and productivity.

How Does a Business Qualify as a Finalist?

The judging panel for the SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards has been developed over 15 years and the individuals chosen are all highly revered within their industry. Applications are judged by a rotation of 4 different judges from the 15-strong judging panel. Judges award scores to their own sponsored category and to ensure transparency, are given several other categories to rate. Using the information provided by the business, judges score them between 1-5 based on a set of questions and finalists are decided by the sum of the total score.

Who Qualifies for an Award?

Businesses that qualify for the SME Award are located within Cambridgeshire, with a workforce of fewer than 250 employees. Existing businesses need to have been started prior to January 2016 and new businesses commenced since January 2016.
