Ashby-based Finch Consulting has been nominated as finalists two categories at the 2021 Leicestershire Business Awards.

One of the objectives in the Finch business plan is to ensure the community is recognised for the progress it has made as a business, as well the impact on on risk management through our work with clients.

The two categories the company has been shortlisted for are: Company of the Year and Employer of the Year.

The Company of the Year Award celebrates businesses that have performed outstandingly during those 12 months.

The Ivanhoe Office Park based Finch Consulting was visited by judges representing category sponsorJanine Edwards Wealth Management who had previously read the company's written entry and visited "The Nest" to learn more about Finch and its ambitions.

The statement about this category says that the overall winner will: "Stand out from the crowd and have developed a strong business presence with proof of achievements including strong market share, economic turn-around and innovative approach.

"Judges will be looking for a business that can be universally admired for its commercial practice and dedication to success."

The second category in which Finch has been shortlisted is the Employer of the Year, which, the Ashby company feels is, arguably, the most important - as one of its key objectives is to "nurture brilliant people to

balance risk".

This award is sponsored by The Growth Partners who said this about about the company that will win this category: "The company will have demonstrated strong investment in its employees as well having a

reward scheme and other key employee benefits.

"It will be recognised as one of the best places to work in the area!"

This is the first time that Finch has entered any kind of award, but adds it has always been focused on continuous improvement and investment in people - and found the process of preparing the award

submission motivating.

Commenting on the awards shortlist, Andrew Millington, Finance Director said. "Everyone in the Finch community has contributed to our success.

"Finch is now in a debt-free position with a record of strong profitability and cash flow, allowing for strategic growth underpinned by investment in its people, including recruitment, rewards, personal development and

training, wellbeing, the working environment and the culture.

"This investment is felt throughout the Finch Community, who wholly share the vision for the business. Their willingness to go the extra mile due to the culture created by investing in and caring for our people has been fundamental in Finch achieving its strategic goals and becoming the financially stable business it is today."
