The Excellence in Business Awards recognises and celebrates inspirational businesses whom bring jobs and investment to the Yorkshire region, especially during a period of uncertainty as we have seen in 2020.
During what can only be described as a strange year amidst a global pandemic, this year’s awards attracted more than 180 quality entries from across the country. Resolve was shortlisted against four other fantastic local businesses including Mansfield Pollard, Conservatory Outlet and Airedale International. To win the award was therefore an absolute delight.
The virtual awards ceremony took place on Thursday 4th November 2020, superbly hosted by Yorkshire legend Harry Gration.
The award win played true testimony towards Resolve’s continued commitment to investing in apprentices, especially throughout the course of this year. We are excited to welcome our latest apprentice to the business at the end of November this year, which will mark the 11th apprentice to embark on an IT career with Resolve.
Upon receiving the Apprenticeship award, Resolve’s Managing Director and Founder Andrew Seaton said:
“I’m just so pleased for the team, we’ve worked really hard to invest in young people in our region. Jared who is Resolve’s Technical Team Leader, spends a lot of time mentoring our young people so it’s great to win this award, the team will be so thrilled.”
Responding to Gration’s question as to whether it is more important now more than ever to invest in the future, Andrew answered:
“Absolutely, we’ve all seen some of the slightly gimmer readings around jobs and what the future looks like for young people, but we’ve always seen the benefit in investing in young people. IT is a fast moving, high paced environment and so to have young people working in our organisation, who then train up future apprentices is great. Some of our most Senior Engineers started out as apprentices and so I’m extremely proud of everyone in the team.”
The first of its kind virtual awards ceremony ran seamlessly, albeit for all the award winners, it wasn’t quite the same having to celebrate remotely. On the positive side though, a dance round the kitchen table in your PJ’s is a lot comfier than hitting the dancefloor in ballgowns and bow ties.
