08 September 2015: BJSS, the delivery-focused IT consultancy has been named as a National Champion for the United Kingdom in the European Business Awards sponsored by RSM.
This is the second consecutive year that BJSS has been chosen to represent the United Kingdom in this prestigious competition that is supported by business leaders, academics, media and political representatives from across Europe.
“We’re very proud to have again been selected to represent the United Kingdom as a National Champion,” says Glynn Robinson, BJSS Managing Director. “The European Business Awards is widely recognised as the showcase for Europe’s most dynamic companies and in the next phase of the competition we look forward to sharing how BJSS achieves its success.”
The European Business Awards, now in its ninth year, is Europe’s largest and most significant cross-sector business recognition programme. Over 32,000 business from 33 European countries were engaged during the 2015 competition. In the 2014/15 competition, all EU member markets were represented plus Turkey, Norway, Switzerland, Serbia, Croatia and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Their combined revenue exceeded €1.5 trillion, generating profits of over 60 billion Euros and employing over 2.5 million people.
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards says: “Congratulations to BJSS and all the companies that have been selected to represent their country as National Champions, they play an important part in creating a stronger business community.”
Petar Stoyanov, former President of Bulgaria, continues: “This event inspires and stimulates European Business to reaching exacting criteria, where not only annual turnover and sales count, but also factors with high social importance – what we call business ethics.”
The next stage of the contest requires the National Champions to produce a presentation video, telling their unique story and explaining their business success. The judges will view all of the National Champions’ videos, awarding the best of this group the coveted ‘Ruban d’Honneur’ status. Ruban d’Honneur recipients then go on to be part of the grand final in 2016.
