Finalists declared in Watford business awards

December 26, 2016 by  

Voting for the firms which qualified for the Watford BID Service Excellence Awards (WBSEA) has begun.

Businesses which operate in the town centre of Watford have been recognised. Only those organisations which have focused on excellent service have gone forward to the final. The public has been given the chance to pick winners by voting in polls both offline or online. Luxury business cards from Watford can be used at the WBSEA ceremony in February 2017.

Kwame Tefe, the vice-chair at Watford BID, told the St Albans & Harpenden Review:

“Businesses that make up the town centre’s night time economy – the bars, pubs and clubs – have valued the friendly competition of the Best Bar None Awards scheme which has run for the past three years, so it’s great to now extend that opportunity to all business sectors operating in the town centre.”

Tefe is a manager at one of the pubs in the town. He explained that the Watford BID aspires to improve the perception of the area. The idea is that civic pride and loyalty can be enhanced by the promotion of customer service.

The licensing department of the local authority is playing a role in the assessment of some of the different categories. Murrill Construction is the main sponsor of the event, but a range of enterprises will sponsor specific prizes. There will be recognition for an individual who has consistently delivered superb customer service.
