The Springboard Awards celebrate the best the hospitality industry has to offer, rewarding businesses that show excellence in one or more particular fields – whether that’s implementing the latest digital technologies into their processes, or showing finesse in their recruitment procedures. And due to the high calibre of our industry’s businesses, entries are coming in fast… but what makes a good entry?
The judges are searching for companies that show continuous commitment to improving processes, and becoming the best of their particular field. Whether it’s forging strong links between the industry and educational institutions, raising the profile of the industry or showing unrivalled innovation and creativity in their initiatives – it’s about showing that they are the pinnacle of what they do. There are many different categories and awards to choose from, and businesses are able to submit applications for multiple categories.
Companies need to submit their application through our online form. However, companies can’t just talk the talk – they need to be able to back up their claims that they’re the top of their field. They need to clearly explain – and show – what they’ve done to achieve their goals, and explain exactly how they did it.
For example, let’s say ‘The Springboard Restaurant’ had recently been upping the ante on its Chef Development Strategy. They would need to be able to demonstrate effective and innovative processes, and an environment which would facilitate the attraction and growth of chefs.
