Nomination for the Best Business Women Award
The Best Business Women Awards have announced their finalists for 2019. The business world is full of talented and dedicated female entrepreneurs who not only run successful businesses but, in many cases, also juggle the needs of their families. The Best Business Women Awards are designed to recognise the achievement of those women across a wide range of business categories from women across the UK.
Local businesswoman Lisa Seagroatt from HR Fit for Purpose has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Best Woman in Business Services. HR Fit for Purpose is all about promoting to business the importance of recognising the need to invest in their workforce through employee engagement to create a healthy workplace culture which results in higher productivity and lower sickness absence and turnover.
Debbie Gilbert, organiser of The Best Business Women Awards said ‘This is the 5th year of these prestigious awards. We were delighted with the number of entries this year, which came in from all over the UK. This is a tough competition judged by business experts. To be a finalist is a major achievement. Finalists have been selected for their business acumen, determination, creativity and tenacity. Well over 80% of start-ups fail in the first 3 years and all our finalists are all shining examples of being successful entrepreneurs who have proved their success to our judges.’
Lisa Seagroatt, Founder and Managing Director of HR Fit For Purpose said “I am absolutely delighted to have reached the shortlist after just over two years in business; it was quite a journey for me to take that step after experiencing a debilitating mental health breakdown caused by work stress and 30 years of being an employee so to reach the Final of the Best Business Women Awards 2019 is quite an incredible and stunning achievement!”
The gala final of The Best Business Women Awards will be held on 11th October 2019 at The Tower Hotel in London when the winners will be announced.
