We’re all jaded but elated in the office today after a storming evening that saw The Right Fuelcard Company (TRFC) which runs our Foundation, scoop the Small Business category of the Yorkshire Business Masters 2017 awards.
The accolades are spearheaded by TheBusinessDesk.com and the Small Business award recognises a business in the region that has demonstrated outstanding development and growth in performance.
We were also honoured to be nominated in the Employer category, which celebrates a company that is “great to work for”.
The vibrant event at the Queens Hotel in Leeds brought together a packed room full of key influencers, decision makers, shortlisted companies and leaders to celebrate the crème de la crème of the region’s businesses. It was hosted by TheBusinessDesk.com’s Yorkshire editor Alex Turner and Nina Warhurst, BBC political editor.
TRFC business director, Adam Walsh, who was interviewed by Alex Turner, after being presented with a trophy, said: “This is a powerful endorsement of a formative year thanks to our committed, top teams across TRFC and the Foundation.
“The last 14 months have brought a raft of milestones. They include being ranked 33rd in the Sunday Times Best Companies, where we were awarded a 3 Star accreditation for “exceptional” levels of employee engagement. The Sunday Times also recognised our Foundation’s ground-breaking work with a Discovering Potential Award.”
It aims to find the best of Yorkshire’s businesses – whether it be their commitment to the community or their ambitious growth – that sets them apart.
