Director of people operations James Blake described winning the award as a ‘great accolade’ and urged businesses in the area to enter this year.

He said: “Winning the award has meant so much to the business and our teams; our Talk Staff family are the reason we entered in the first place as it’s a great platform to recognise their achievements.

“The winning announcement drove really positive engagement with our team and it was great to also receive such positive comments from our clients and other businesses; there is a thriving, community buzz around the awards and we’d recommend any ambitious businesses to enter.”
