Time is running out to enter the Workplace & Employment Awards

It is only a matter of hours before companies and organizations are due to apply for the Irish News Workplace & Employment Awards (WEA) 2023, an initiative that has become a permanent feature of the awards calendar in the North.

The review process, which will be chaired by Ann McGregor, the soon-to-be president of the NI Chamber of Commerce, will take place next week.

And then the winners and highly acclaimed companies will come together on Thursday 8 June at a gala awards party in Titanic Belfast, hosted by comedic star Neil Delamere.

One of the business partners of this year’s awards is Belfast-based Options Technology, which was founded two decades ago as a hedge fund technology service provider.

“We are thrilled to once again come on board to support an event that celebrates organizations and employees driving the economy forward,” said Niall McAleer, Option Technology marketing director.

“The WEA Awards are highly respected in the industry and provide an excellent opportunity for sponsors to showcase their brand and values.

“At Options, we are strong advocates of recognizing our employees for their outstanding performance, innovation and expertise, and we believe it is the people who drive our organization and add value, enabling us to deliver exceptional service to our clients.

“And by celebrating the exceptional standards and achievements of others in our industry, we can continue to motivate and inspire our own team and create a positive environment for the next generation of homegrown talent.”

The Options team was delighted to receive the Best Employee Development Program (SME) award at the WEAs a year ago.

Niall added: “This was a very welcome award as it recognizes our efforts to foster the professional development of our team and create a culture of lifelong learning across the company.

“We encourage companies to participate in the award categories that align with their core values ​​and goals, and to take this opportunity to celebrate excellence in their workplace, drive brand recognition and build valuable relationships, all while enhancing your commitment to making a positive impact on the ever-evolving business landscape.

“And we look forward to attending the award ceremony on June 8 at the iconic Titanic Belfast and celebrating the achievements of our local business community with everyone.”

Among other partner sponsors this year is the North’s largest independent law firm, Carson McDowell, which employs more than 200 people in Belfast and Dublin.

Founded in 1852 by William H. Carson and Alexander McDowell and today jointly led by managing partner Roger McMillan and senior partner Neasa Quigley, the firm has a significant heritage but is passionate about creating a modern, dynamic, forward-thinking law firm with people and clients at the center.

Based in Murray House, next to the Royal Belfast Academical Institution, Carson McDowell represents around 50 per cent of Northern Ireland’s top 100 companies and is known for having more experts in more specialist areas than any other law firm in the north.

There are 10 main categories this year (full details and criteria at irishnews.com/wea), each of which will be split into small/medium or medium/large subsectors.

In addition to Options Technology and Carson McDowell, this year’s other partner sponsors for Workplace & Employment Awards include Errigal Group and Queen’s University, while category sponsors include NI Chamber, NI Job Finder, Glandore, FScom, Galgorm and Titanic Belfast.
