The real business boost from regional awards ceremonies
On Friday 6th November the 2020 DGBusiness awards took place in an online streamed event. Organised by the Dumfries and Galloway Chamber of Commerce, the awards highlight businesses across the region in a number of categories. We were delighted to be announced as the winner of Outstanding Large Business of the Year, with a particular mention of our exporting prowess.
Although the majority of our customers are not in Dumfries and Galloway and are unlikely to hear about the event, we feel that awards celebrating local business success are still really important. ETB is a national and international supplier of IT hardware but we are a company with a very local heart.
Our business success is driven by our team with almost all of them recruited from the immediate area. We want to employ the best talent and winning this award raises our profile in the region when it comes to looking for new additions to the ETB family. We are already an accredited Living Wage employer and offer a good working environment for all our teams but being able to add an award like this will help us continue to attract the best candidates.
By continuing to run our operations from our base in Dalbeattie, as we have since 2001, we can provide meaningful job opportunities and contribute the economy in our area. We make the most of the hospitality and catering outlets for regular team social events and lunches when restrictions permit. We also use local tradesmen and businesses for work needing done around the warehouse and office.
We would like to thank D&G Chamber for the award this year and say congratulations to all the winners and nominees. It has been great to see the diverse range of businesses around us and these awards really help with profile raising.
