Flame UK wins award at East Midlands Chamber Awards
Flame UK won big on Friday 18th November, taking home an award from the Nottinghamshire Business Awards 2022, hosted by the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce. The Awards Gala Dinner saw members of the British Chambers of Commerce from across the county come together and have their achievements recognised by the East Midlands Chamber.
Flame UK, announced as a finalist back in July, went through rounds of face-to-face judging with the Chamber judges to show why we should be recognised for each award. Flame UK received The Business Improvement through Technology award on the night. Sponsored by Air IT, this award recognises businesses who are integrating and using technology within their organisation to help drive forward customer service by using technology to meet every customer’s needs.
Through the implementation of the new ‘chat box’ feature on our website, we have been able to streamline the customer journey to ensure that every customer’s needs are met as efficiently as possible. Our use of technology means that we can respond to even more business enquiries, helping every customer with their waste management requirements.
Flame UK were also finalists for three other awards including:
- Environmental Impact, sponsored by JG Pears, which recognises businesses who are demonstrating a commitment to making a positive impact on the environment. Flame UK provide one of the first carbon neutral waste collection services in the UK and are committed to providing more sustainable waste management options for businesses.
- Apprentice of the Year for our Digital Marketing Apprentice, Kane O’Neill. This award, sponsored by EMA Training, acknowledges Apprentices who have made an exceptional contribution to their organisations.
- Small Business of the Year, sponsored by Nottingham Trent University, which recognises different small businesses across the county which have achieved consistent growth. Flame UK have been able to provide many businesses across the county with the most sustainable option for their waste management.
Pam Knight, Managing Director at Flame UK, said “We’re absolutely delighted to be able to take home such a prestigious award from the Nottinghamshire Business Awards. It was brilliant to be recognised by the East Midlands Chamber for the hard work we put in to provide our customers with a service that meets their every need.
“It was great opportunity to meet all the other finalists and winners at the Chamber Celebration. Every entry was of such a high standard that it was an honour to be nominated for the awards, let alone take one home. We want to say a big thanks to the sponsors of the award, Air IT, for their support.”
Chamber Chief Executive, Scott Knowles, said “The past few years have been challenging for our business community, and yet we continue to see so many shining examples of business success across our region.
“It’s always important to celebrate these achievements and shout about the great things happening right here in Nottinghamshire. We know it is a fantastic place to do business and these organisations – many of which have worked together to maximise their impact within their sectors and communities – are doing a wonderful job.”
