David Dexters in the running for top award


This year has started with a bang for us after we received news that we were in the running for a regional title in the national Federation of Small Businesses Awards.

We have been shortlisted in the Employer of the Year category in the FSB Businesses’ Celebrating Small Business awards 2019.

The awards, now in their second year, aim to find the best and most innovative small, medium and micro-sized businesses in the UK.


The “best of the best”


For 2019 the FSB were looking to find the “best of the best” and “reward the hard work and innovation that characterises the SME community”.

It means we will be heading to at an event at the Forest of Arden Marriot Hotel, Maxstoke Lane, Meriden, on February 15 to take our seats at the award ceremony among dozens of other businesses from across the region.

We really are thrilled to be a finalist in the awards and in this category – our business success is down to our fantastic team – who all put in 100 per cent effort and make our customers happy every day.

As employers we aim to give them the tools they need to complete their jobs to a high standard and we always ask for regular feedback to ensure they are happy in their working environment.

We understand the importance of growing industry knowledge and providing the support they need to be knowledgeable, happy and motivated – and this, in turn, leads to a great service for our customers.

Now we have to sit back while the independent judges assess each contender before the final announcements are made in February.

It would be great to be announced as the winners at the ceremony but we are so proud of everyone here at David Dexters and just to be shortlisted in these awards is a great achievement – for the whole team!
