Venus Awards Company of the Year
The Company of the Year category was sponsored this year by professional IT service provider, Silver Lining, who recognised the investment in technology Warner Goodman has made to allow women the flexibility to work and grow their careers through training and promotion opportunities.
Marketing Manager Karen Clarkson, who accepted the award on behalf of the firm, commented, “While we were collating the information for our award entry, we were so pleased to see the success women have had in our business; over two thirds of our employees are women, four out of six of our Business Heads are women, 20 out of 24 Associates are women, and there are many more examples. While the awards celebrate women in business, as a firm we truly believe in equality for all, ensuring our opportunities for development are available to all our employees and that their potential is recognised and nurtured. This has become a natural part of Warner Goodman so to be rewarded for that is a proud moment.”
The Venus Awards were created by Tara Howard in 2009 to celebrate women in business across all industries and job roles. As well as Company of the Year, categories included Musical Talent, Executive PA of the Year, Business Mother of the Year, Inspirational Woman of the Year, New Business, Influential Woman of the Year and Lifetime Achievement Award.
Karen concludes, “We’d like to pass on our congratulations to all the finalists and winners of this year’s Venus Awards, with particular thanks to Silver Lining for choosing us as Company of the Year. There were some truly inspirational stories of women across Hampshire at the awards, from both the finalists and winners, and we are so proud to now be part of that community.”
