THE NORTHLAND BUSINESS AWARDS ARE FINISHED FOR 2023 . WE WILL BE BACK FOR 2024!
About The Awards
For 46 years, The Northland Business Excellence Awards has held pride of place in the Northland business events calendar. Organised by NorthChamber and supported through the years by generous and cheerleaders of the Northland business community, it offers local businesses big and small an incredible opportunity to measure, recognise, and honour business excellence.
With the exception of 2020, the year of Covid-19 when the awards took on a more community-based format under the name Northland Business Champions, NorthChamber has used the platform created by the Awards process to encourage businesses to undergo independent evaluation through the entry process showcasing successful, profitable businesses and spotlighting their outstanding achievements.
Why should my business enter?
The Business Awards are here to help develop a framework of excellent business practice in Tai Tokerau.
The entry is loosely based off of the International Baldridge Business Excellence Criteria which takes entrants through a robust and detailed ‘warrant of fitness’ on their business, helping develop capability,
build resilience and recognising and rewarding excellent performance from local businesses.
