Scotlight is delighted to announce that it has been shortlisted in two categories for the the prestigious Herald Family Business Awards 2016 – for Rural Family Business of the Year and Customer Service Excellence.
At Scotlight, awards success is not unusual. It is the second time that the Innerleithen-based company has been recognised at the national awards, after making the shortlist twice in 2014, while it was also on the shortlist for the 2015 Select Awards.
The winners will be announced at a ceremony in Glasgow in December.
The Herald Family Business Awards, in association with Business Gateway Scotland, recognises family businesses from all sectors and of all sizes, right across Scotland.
Previous winners include Glenrath Farms, who Scotlight has worked with closely in the past.
The first category that Scotlight is nominated in is for customer service. We are proud of all our staff, especially the diligent and professional way that they support our customers.
This category will recognise a company which has excelled in the provision of customer service as an integral part of their business. Judges will be looking for evidence of how this has been achieved and contributed to the success and development of the organisation (Newsquest Scotland).
Scotlight is also nominated in the Rural Business of the Year (small / medium) category. Our headquarters are in the small Borders town of Innerleithen, which has a population of just 2500, and we remain rooted in the local community, despite now expanding to serve the whole of the UK.
Businesses in rural areas play a vital role in providing employment and wealth in the communities in which they operate. This category recognises family businesses in rural Scotland with 100 employees or less, from any sector, which have made a real difference (Newsquest Scotland).
The news is great timing, as Scotlight has just celebrated its 20th birthday. The Scotlight awards success is further recognition for our amazing employees who make the business what it is.
