Surrey Super Growth Awards return to recognise the fastest-growing companies

 

Surrey Super Growth 2017It’s well understood that achieving sustained business growth isn’t easy. So it’s vitally important that we continue to celebrate the success of Surrey-based companies that are driving rising demand, increasing employment and generating wealth and prosperity. The Surrey Super Growth Awards return for a second year to do just that.

 

The Surrey region is a significant and growing contributor to the national economy with sector strengths in manufacturing, advanced engineering, digital technologies, professional services and pharmaceuticals. Over 60,000 active businesses contribute to a regional economy worth over £30 billion, employing more than half a million people.

 

Surrey Super Growth is a collaboration between leading regional law firm asb law, Lloyds Bank and national accountancy firm RSM, with the Surrey Chambers Business Magazine as media partner. The Awards produce a unique index of the fastest growing private businesses across the region and celebrates their success at a special breakfast event to be held later this year.

 

Unlike traditional business awards, there is no cost involved in participation and companies do not need to apply to be included provided full accounts are filed at Companies House over a 3-year accounting period. This information is assessed against rigorous qualifying criteria to identify the fastest growing companies.

Surrey Super Growth is a great opportunity for them to celebrate success, increase brand exposure and attract the best talent. All of this with no cost and minimal effort.”
