We’re delighted to announce that TRFC, which runs our foundation, has been named Best Large Company at a glittering awards ceremony!
The Harrogate Advertiser Series Business awards cover an economic region with a diverse mix of companies. Nominees across all categories span sectors including hospitality, retail, tourism (including a vineyard), automotive, medical and IT.
Categories were hotly contested with Jean MacQuarrie, editor of the Harrogate Advertiser Series, applauding the high standard of entries. She commented: “We all know there are some brilliant companies out there, but it’s not until you hear at first-hand about their achievements that you really appreciate how much talent there actually is in our business community.”
The black-tie event – held at Majestic Hotel in Harrogate – is a milestone in the town’s business calendar.
The accolade follows TRFC being ranked 34 in the Sunday Times Best 100 Small Companies to Work For and being awarded a 3 Star Accreditation – the highest accolade a company can receive – for “exceptional” levels of employee’s engagement.
Adam Walsh, Business Director of The Right Fuelcard Company, said: “The Harrogate Advertiser Series Best Large Company award reflects our powerful company culture and values – and how our top team work together to drive our continued success and achieve our goals.
“An enormous ‘thank you’ and well done to all our employees, and a big congratulations to the organisers of this fantastic event and all the worthy finalists and winners.”
