Are you a Manufacturing Champion?

Do you want to join the pantheon of greats that have graced the stage at Works Management’s Manufacturing Champions Awards? Then now is your chance.

The 2017 awards, due to be held at the Midland Hotel in Manchester on 7 December, are now open for entrants. With a record 11 categories to enter, finding a place to showcase the talent and commitment of a team or individual on your site has never been easier.

We need your stories of manufacturing excellence – from inspirational managers who have transformed staff morale, to operators who have gone above and beyond to find innovative solutions to existing problems, taking in the teams who have worked together to develop a health and safety strategy that the whole site has bought into.

Each category is judged by a panel of experts, made up of industry leaders, previous winners and organisations. To catch their attention, your entry must stand out amongst dozens of others, so make sure it shines bright. Give them facts, figures, stats and tables to back up your case, but throw in a touch of personality – photos, testimonials and sketches have proved to be hugely successful in the past.

However you choose to fill out our entry form, remember that the judges will be looking for the entrant’s ability to demonstrate outstanding performance, innovation, leadership, teamwork and added value to customers. These represent the core attributes of a Manufacturing Champion, and will underpin the industry’s continued renaissance in the UK.

Of the eleven categories for 2017, the SME Innovators Award is brand new for this year. The award, which is limited to companies with 250 employees or fewer, is designed to celebrate the team that demonstrates that size doesn’t matter when it comes to showcasing the best of manufacturing talent.

On top of this, the remaining categories, which are open to all, cover everything from maintenance to skills, and from health and safety to leadership. You can enter multiple employees or teams for multiple categories – wherever you feel someone has gone above and beyond, we recommend you put them forward for recognition.

The deadline for entries is 5pm on Friday 22 September 2017. All entries will be scrutinised by WM’s editorial team, who will pass all qualifying entries over to the panel of judges, who will meet at a judging day to decide on a final shortlist, and the overall winners.

The 2017 shortlist will be announced in November ahead of the winners being revealed at the final event in December.
