1. Raise awareness of your company and benefit from great PR

Previous winners of our Awards have been impressed by the amount of positive PR they have received, raising awareness of their business, impressing their existing customers and opening the door to new customers. The accolade provides an opportunity to share the fantastic things you’re doing with your customers your marketing and your industry.

2. Boost employee motivation and focus your team on even greater success

If you’re crowned a regional or national winner your business will benefit from improved employee morale, increased sense of pride and greater confidence that you can meet the challenges going forward.

Getting recognition for your achievements is a great way to motivate your employees to continue to work hard and achieve even greater success.

3. Enhance your employer profile and attract the best talent to your team

Winning an EEF Future Manufacturing Award proves that your business is operating at the forefront and gives you a massive advantage when it comes to recruitment. It will help position your company as an ‘employer of choice’, so you can attract the best talent to your team and retain existing skills in your workforce. 




4. Gain internal recognition

Whether you're a family owned business, multi-site operation, part of a UK corporate group or a small part of a huge global business, winning one of our awards is a perfect opportunity to tell your story to the rest of your business and gain their admiration and for your hard work. 

Whether you’re an apprentice, a manager, part of the senior management team or CEO, it's an opportunity to gain recognition for your individual contribution to your business’ success. 

5. Prove your credentials and show how you're focused on the future

Winning a nationally recognised award is a great stamp for your expertise and achievement. What better way to show the world you're committed to the environment, investing in skills and apprentices, passionate about your people or an export success? 

Winning an award is a mark of merit for both the business and the individuals involved. It also provides a great opportunity to share best practice with your peers.
