When we heard that we had been nominated in the Downtown Lancashire Business Awards 2013 for ‘Employer of the Year’ and ‘Digital Agency of the Year’, we were thrilled and hoped that those we knew would take the opportunity to vote for us.
On Thursday 7th November, the team put on their glad rags and headed over to the impressive Stanley House Hotel to join many of the leading companies and entrepreneurs from across Lancashire. The Awards celebrate the fantastic businesses in the region and their successes, at an annual glittering Awards Ceremony. We were all eagerly anticipating the results from the voting and the independent judges’ decisions. We were delighted to be nominated for our categories and to be recognised within Lancashire for the quality of work we produce.
The Awards Venue, located in the middle of the countryside, welcomed their guests with fruit juice & champagne which also gave us the opportunity to chat to other nominees and attendees before dinner. To begin the Ceremony, the host Jim Hancock announced the winners of Networker of the Year Male and Female before our three course meal was served (the chocolate tart definitely went down a treat!). Once everyone had finished their meals, the rest of the Award winners were announced by each category’s sponsor.
The first category Magma Digital were nominated in was Employer of the Year. The wait for the winners name to be announced seemed an eternity, we crossed our fingers and toes waiting to hear if our application and the voting had won us the honour of Employer of the Year 2013. The team were over the moon to hear that Magma Digital had been awarded Employer of the Year 2013! Our table clapped and cheered, as the team acknowledges the recognition for their employers investment in them. To be identified for this Award is a fantastic achievement for us and we would like to thank everyone who voted for us!
We are excited to see what other Award opportunities arise in the next few months; so keep an eye out for any new awards and nominations on our website.
Magma Digital continually looks for ways to provide our staff with opportunities to learn and develop their skills. Recently we introduced a new laptop scheme so that staff can benefit from the use of a work laptop. Just another example of the ‘Magma’ way we do things!
Once again, thank you to all who supported us!
