Claims Consortium Group has been involved in the Taunton Deane Business Awards for several years, as both entrant and sponsor. The insurance claims handling firm previously won two awards, and has since returned as sponsor of the Best Employer Award for a 2nd year.

Debbie Mawer, Director of People and Culture, tells us of their experiences:

Being part of the Taunton Deane Business Awards does more than just increase awareness of your own business offering. It’s a chance to fully immerse yourself within the local community and build strong links with like-minded businesses on your doorstep.

In 2016 we entered the Corporate Social Responsibility Award, highlighting our work with local charities, our commitment to reducing our impact on the environment, and most importantly our emphasis on the welfare of our staff.

In our award submission, we included examples of the support we were giving to local charities, demonstrated the actions we were taking to make our workplace the best it could be, and backed that up with testimonials from our staff.

The awards evening was a brilliant chance to meet other local businesses, and we were proud to be selected as the winner of the CSR award, as well as receiving the overall Commendation Award on the night.

We have seen first-hand how success in these awards can benefit you as a local business, so in 2017 we decided to support other businesses hoping to be as lucky as we were. We chose to sponsor the Best Employer award, aligning with our company commitment to support and empower our staff. We are very excited to be back this year as sponsor to the same award, and can’t wait to celebrate the achievements of some brilliant local businesses.
