The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise have been operating in various
forms since 1966, developing over the years into the current format
comprising four categories of Award.
– Innovation
– International Trade
– Sustainable Development
– Promoting Opportunity through social mobility.
Previous winners have confirmed that the main reason they entered
for a Queen’s Award is for the prestige it brings to their business.
Both at home and overseas, respect for the company is enhanced
with this notable achievement. Winners find that having the award
can often make a difference in gaining an introduction to new
customers. Award winners have found that it is also a wonderful
promotional opportunity for publicity in local and national press as
well as trade magazines.
The majority of winning companies have below 250 employees but
there are also many larger businesses which have been successful.
Terry Currie chairs the Lanarkshire Lieutenancy Business Group. He
believes that the benefits of winning a Queen’s Award are significant
for a business and therefore it makes sense to find out more about
the qualifying criteria and what’s involved in entering.
The application process for the 2023 Awards is open from May to
September 2022.
