Network Scientific attended the Harrogate Advertiser Excellence in Business Awards and were proud to be announced winners of the Employer of the Year Award!

Not only was it a wonderful and exciting event for the team, it was also a great place to learn about the other businesses from the Harrogate area and all of the amazing things that are being achieved in and around our town.

Everything on the night was perfect, the atmosphere, the people, the food and to win the Employer of the Year Award topped off the evening perfectly for us.

Our company mission is ‘To support businesses and professionals in their development by creating opportunities and inspiring people’. This applies not only to our clients, but also to our employees. We are dedicated to creating a business and culture that every employee can be proud to be a part of, so to have won the award for Employer of the Year means a great deal to us all.

“Winning this award is an amazing achievement for Network Scientific. To continue to offer the best possible service levels to our customers, and maintain our reputation, we need to ensure that we attract and retain the best talent our market has to offer. We do this by offering continuous training and development, supporting a good work-life balance with flexible working and duvet days, etc, by regularly celebrating and rewarding our team’s achievements and offering a happy, supportive working environment for our employees to thrive within. We couldn’t be prouder of this achievement and the recognition that comes with it.” – Zara Jackson, Managing Director.

Here are some comments from other members of team about the night:

 “The Awards night was very well organised and it was great to find out about what other businesses have been up to in the Harrogate Area. Some of the individuals up on the stage were truly inspirational. And the same is to be said about Zara! I feel very proud to be working as part of an award-winning business. I have only been here four months but I am definitely here to stay.”

“Sometimes it’s easy to forget the vibrancy and drive of the Harrogate business community. The Harrogate Advertiser Excellence in Business Awards fixes that – and then some! “It was very gratifying even to be shortlisted for the Employer of the Year award. To actually win it was not only an incredible thrill but also validation of everything we’ve been trying to do here to make Network Scientific a fantastic place to work. Ensuring that everyone in the Network Scientific team is happy and motivated not only drives productivity but also sits at the very core of our company values. We will continue to ensure that Network Scientific remains a great place to work.”

“It was great to see so many thriving local businesses under one roof, celebrating their successes in such vibrant surroundings. The thrill of being shortlisted for Employer of the Year was bettered only by the moment when it was announced that we had won, fending off strong competition in doing so. I’m proud to have been a part of the evening and sharing in Zara’s well-deserved success.”

“It’s a pleasure to be involved in nights like last Thursday, illustrating the importance of collaboration between prosperous Harrogate businesses. The event itself aimed to celebrate the district with multiple high-profile guest speakers, live entertainment and a menu comprised of seasonal and locally-sourced produce; most notably a luxurious chocolate fudge brownie with salted caramel sauce. As I tucked into the final mouthfuls of the velvety dessert, I thought the evening had reached its pinnacle. I was mistaken. When Network Scientific was called out for the “Employer of the Year” award, the team’s elation was palpable. This shared sense of pride really proves how deserving Zara is of this accolade and I hope we’re able to continue being involved in these types of proceedings.”
