How our awards work ...

The TMP Business Award process begins with the all-important voting & marketing stage. Once you are nominated your customers can vote for you & we will provide a direct link for you to add to your website, social media pages & email to your customers so they can support you in your nomination. 


In addition to this, we will contact you to hold a telephone interview and discuss with you, your business, successes & achievements. Plus, any struggles you had to overcome & what has driven you to become successful. 


There are only two ways in which a nomination can be received:

  1. A firm or individual can self-nominate – if you believe only large corporates win awards think      again! Many SME Businesses have taken awards for innovation, customer service & excellence in business.
  2. A third party can nominate on your behalf – this could be a customer, an employee or a family member      who feels you should be considered for recognition of your business      success & achievements. 

At the point of nomination, we do not ask the individual filling in the form to disclose their full details – just a contact email address and the reason they believe you & your business should be nominated & why you should win! We have found that the response rate shoot up when the process remains anonymous and because of this, we calculate the total number of votes and pass this information to the judging panel. 


Unless a firm has self-nominated, we appreciate this may come as a surprise to the business owner. It is for this reason we offer you the opportunity to Accept or Decline the nomination. Should you choose to accept the nomination, your name will be added to the shortlist & you will have the opportunity to provide us with supplementary information using our tailor-made questionnaire. Should you wish to decline, we will remove your name from the running & you will not be contacted further about this opportunity. 


As with all our awards there is no cost in accepting a nomination, nor if you go on to win.
