A County Durham training company has been confirmed as a finalist in the SME category of the British Champion Awards 2023.
The ScoreApp SME of the Year Award represents small-medium businesses that have continued to succeed in uncertain times. It is safe to say businesses have had a lot to deal with in recent years, from Brexit to the global pandemic and its economic implications. As an online training provider, DLC Training has faced many trials and tribulations over the past few years as the majority of people put their professional development on hold while enduring the pandemic.
This award specifically focuses on SMEs as opposed to larger enterprises. When a major event occurs, larger organisations with more resources do not encounter the same level of risk as smaller businesses. When a small business faces any kind of uncertainty, the impact could be disastrous. This is why the award celebrates the work of smaller businesses. Not only have SMEs had to deal with a lot of challenges and market disruption, but they have arguably worked harder to continue serving their customers to the same standard.
The Awards night will take place Wednesday 22nd March at the East Wintergarden, Canary Wharf, London. Key members of the DLC Training team will be at the dinner to celebrate with all the finalists. Whatever the result, the team and their learners are all winners thanks to their continued drive to provide exceptional service, and they look forward to continuing to thrive in the online education sector.
The Business Champion Awards received over 800 applications across all award categories. DLC Training were initially shortlisted to the top 140, and then selected to be one of the 10 finalists in this competitive category.
Megan Slater, Head of Sales and Business Development, says, “We’re delighted to have been selected as a finalist for this award, it’s a testament to the hard work and dedication of every team member. Over the past few years, our company has quickly adapted to the changing circumstances we have all experienced and I am proud to say we have come out stronger. Not only has the functionality and efficiency of the business improved, but our working relationships as a team have gone from strength to strength. I can confidently speak on behalf of the whole business when I say we’re proud to be part of the DLC Training team.”
