Hull and East Yorkshire People in Business Awards postponed

15th Apr

With the well-being of team members, nominees and guests being the main priority, the postponement follows advice from Government bodies in a bid to keep people safe at this time.
However, nominations for the awards will remain open, giving businesses the chance to shine a light on their hardworking team members who have gone above and beyond in their role over the past few weeks.
Jo Fleming, entrepreneur and founder of the Hull and East Yorkshire People in Business Awards (HEYPIBAs), says: “Though we’re disappointed to postpone the awards, health and safety is our utmost priority at the moment, and we feel that this is the best step to take until we receive further information.
“Now more than ever, our talented and dedicated workforce should be celebrated. We’re looking forward to hearing all about your employees and the amazing work they’ve done to keep your businesses on the go.
“We’d also like to thank our sponsors, in particular our headline sponsor Wilberforce Sixth Form College, during this challenging time.”
Tickets and any nominations already submitted for the HEYPIBAs will also remain valid.
With 15 categories to enter, businesses and employees can nominate their peers for a range of awards – from Entrepreneur of the Year and Innovator to Team Impact.
Unique from other awards, the Hull and East Yorkshire People in Business Awards will once again celebrate talented and hardworking team members from across the area.
