The Business Excellence & CSR Awards
Fingal Dublin Chamber organises the Awards each year to create awareness of, and highlight business excellence across all business sectors, private, public and charity. Entry to the Awards is free and is open to all businesses/organisations including non-members of the Chamber.
Winning one of these Awards will raise a company’s profile, enhance their reputation and help to attract new business. In addition, this year the Chamber is adding more value, as all shortlisted entrants will receive feedback on their submission from the panel of expert independent judges, while shortlisted finalists in the Customer Experience Excellence Awards category will receive access to their detailed mystery shop results.
Entries to the Awards close at 5 pm on Friday, 28 September 2018.

Assessment of Entries
Insight6, the customer experience specialists, will carry out the measurement and adjudication of the Fingal Business Excellence & SCR Awards 2018 on behalf of Fingal Dublin Chamber. A number of key performance indicators have been created for each award and these will be measured using a combination of mystery shopping visits, mystery phone calls and judging panels of independent experts.
A shortlist of finalists for each award will be selected to go forward to the finals at the Gala Awards Presentation Evening. All shortlisted finalists must attend the event to be eligible to win an Award. Shortlisted finalists will receive a feedback report from the judges.
