Queens Award for Enterprise

The Queen’s Award for Enterprise (QAE) is the UK’s most prestigious business Award for British companies. It recognises UK businesses for outstanding commercial success in innovation and international trade and leading the way in sustainable development practices, and promoting opportunity - by recognising a business’s social mobility programmes and practices.

What happens if your company wins?

If you win you’ll be: invited to a Royal reception at Buckingham Palace, hosted by Her Majesty The Queen, presented the award at your company by one of The Queen’s representatives, a Lord-Lieutenant, able to fly The Queen’s Award flag at your main office, and use the emblem on your marketing materials (for example, on your packaging, advertisements, stationery and website), and given a Grant of Appointment and a commemorative crystal bowl.

The awards are valid for 5 years and winners have reported benefiting from worldwide recognition, increased commercial value, greater press coverage and a boost to staff morale. For more information you can visit the website below.
