Federation of Small Businesses Eastern Region – Employer of the Year 2019 – Daniel Connal Partnership
There was an excited buzz in the air at Newmarket Racecourse on Friday and, for a change, it wasn’t horse related!
The Federation of Small Businesses East of England Region had pulled out all the stops to host a sparkling awards lunch at the racecourse for the shortlisted finalists in its 2019 event. Awards were given in 11 categories, which reflects the amazing range of small businesses thriving in the region – everything from international hauliers to a baby brand that donates 100%of its profits to orphaned and abandoned children – all inspired, passionate and determined to be successful.
We were extremely proud to have made the shortlist for the Employer of the Year Award, and were up against some seriously stiff competition: WFP Fire & Security (last year’s winners), PolicyBee LLP, SF Enginering and Content Discovered.
But …. we won!
A huge thanks to the FSB, the East of England Apprentice Ambassador Network – sponsors of the Employer of the Year award, and Matt O’Connor their Chair, who made the presentation. It was a great occasion made all the more special by our success!
Partner, Jonathan Dennis, who accepted the award, said, “One of our company’s core values is to enjoy what we do. We aim to be a good employer by encouraging and supporting our staff to do just that, enjoy their work, because people who enjoy and are passionate in what they do provide a great service. This award is very much a tribute to the DCP team.”
So, celebrations across all our offices. Our Best Employer 2019 award is currently proudly displayed on the reception desk in Colchester, but it will do the rounds for everyone to see.
As, winners of a regional award we now go forward to the national FSB finals in London on 23 May – we’ll be keeping everything crossed!
