The last two years have been quite the journey for everyone in business. The pandemic has brought new challenges, new opportunities, new ways of working.
Every business has a story to tell. Red Rose Awards 2022 wants to share those stories.
The winner of this award will be able to demonstrate that their not-for-profit business works like a business should – even under the most trying circumstances
Our judges want to know how you have worked through the difficulties of the pandemic while maintaining a focus on the people you service. How have you innovated, changed and invested?
