We are very excited to announce that SMG has been named finalists in the 2019 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards, shortlisted for The Employer of the Year.
The National Business Awards, now in their 18th year, have a long-standing history of celebrating the best of British business and recognise companies who are driving exceptional growth across the country.
Since its inception 10 years ago, SMG is now a company of over 100 employees across three locations. Championing all aspects of Shopper Media, SMG now works with media owners in a unique way, has built a proprietary software platform (Plan-Apps) and sits in-house with some of the UK’s largest retailers providing creative co-marketing campaigns.
This follows on from our win in 2018, as we were named Lloyds Bank Mid-Market of the Year. This shortlisting is an indication that we are starting to realise our core ambition – to be an extraordinary company to work for – and that our investment in our people strategy is being recognised by the wider industry.
The next stage is for us to present SMG to a panel of judges and business leaders at a meeting in September, after which the winners will be revealed on the 12th of November at the Grosvenor House Hotel. Stay tuned to find out if we come away with the award this year. Fingers crossed!
