Recognition for Your Achievements
Exposure for You and Your Organisation
Entering and winning Awards ensures that the people you work with know who you are. This may even open doors to new opportunities within your business. The Awards also gives you great PR opportunities that will raise your profile within your business community and let your clients know that you are a major and trustworthy financial force..
Return on Investment
Awards influence the buying decisions of customers. Boost Marketing, the largest Awards entry consultancy, found that over 80% of businesses and consumers surveyed were influenced by Awards. Almost half (49%) of those surveyed agreed that award-winning suppliers deliver superior products and services, identifying this as the number-one factor in selecting suppliers. Finalists tell us that winning team-related Awards helps them improve staff retention rates and attract a higher calibre of candidates when recruiting.
Access to Customer Service Leaders
Entering the UK Financial Services Experience Awards gives you access to a network of business leaders and influencers from a truly diverse mix of companies, big and small. There is plenty of time to network throughout the Awards Finals, with allocated breaks for sharing ideas with colleagues and new friends.
Share Best Practice
Attendees tell us they value the opportunity to engage with and learn from other teams who are all at different stages in their journey. All participants can visit the open judging and benchmark against peers and industry leaders, since these awards, more than any other, can be an amazing source of inspiration, as well as an incomparable opportunity to enhance your business.
You will receive valuable feedback from our panel of impartial, independent and expert industry Judges. Make it through to the Awards Finals and you will receive your very own benchmarked feedback report that identifies what you’re doing right plus pointers to help you take your team to the next level.
Reward and Motivate Your Team
Entering Awards provides an immediate boost to workplace morale - even more when you involve your financial team in the entry process. Employees enjoy working for successful companies, and winning or being shortlisted for a Financial Services Award lets you recognise your employees for their contribution to the business – as well as raising their profile internally and externally.
Educate Your Team Whilst Having Fun!
It wouldn’t be the UK Financial Services Experience Awards if we didn’t give your financial team a great experience! If you make it through to the Awards Finals, you’ll present to the Judging panel. Plus, you’ll enjoy the excitement and anticipation of the Awards Finals with your team over an exclusive black tie event with a gala lunch, and champagne.
Just think how good it would feel to walk up on the stage collect your trophy, to add the words ‘Award Winning’ to your website. An Award helps set you apart from competitors not only with clients, but internally for your brand. It’s a great way to promote your business and establish yourself as the ultimate financial professional that deserves to be trusted.
