The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) widely regarded as the experts in business, have shortlisted company metrostress in their north-west’s forthcoming FSB Business Awards.
The company is tipped to take a gong in the ‘Health & Beauty’ category, which celebrate and rewards exceptional small businesses from across the Merseyside, West Cheshire and Wigan regions.
metrostress was set up in 2000 by Bill Dove, former teacher-turned-entrepreneur who recognized the need to relieve workplace stress to contribute both to employee wellbeing and the fortunes of companies as a whole.
metrostress work with associate services to offer corporate stress management to a host of north-west companies which currently includes Kellogg’s, Irwell Valley Housing Association, Vivid, Blue Chip Marketing, William Turner and Wilds Chartered Accountants.
Chris Burgess, Chairman of FSB Merseyside, West Cheshire and Wigan said of the awards: “As a leading lobbyist we fight on behalf of local entrepreneurs every day……, I am looking forward to recognising some exceptional businesses and the brains behind them.”
“I’m absolutely thrilled to have received this nomination.” says Bill. “Stress is a major cause of illness and absenteeism in the country today, costing the UK over £32 billion a year. It’s great to be recognized for our contribution to combatting this growing problem.”
Working with companies in the public, private and charity sectors, metrostress have gained a reputation for integrity, flexibility and value for money. Comprehensive feedback gained from every interaction has demonstrated how employees always look forward to their visits, and how much employers value their re-energised staff as a consequence.
If they win the award it would fit nicely with the fact that they have worked with a number of companies featured in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For.
The awards ceremony tales place on Thursday, 8 December 2016 at the Crowne Plaza, Liverpool and will be hosted by Ted Robbins, Liverpool comedian and star of TV’s Phoenix Nights and Benidorm.
