Kordia has been selected as a finalist in the 2012 AUT Excellence in Business Support Awards.
Recognised for excellence in the Large Business ($50m-$200m turnover) category, Kordia is one of three finalists in the category, and will join 48 other finalists in this year’s AUT Excellence in Business Support Awards – a record number in the award’s seven year history.
Drew Gilpin, General Manager of Sales & Marketing at Kordia, says it’s fantastic to see the company being nationally recognised in these awards.
“At Kordia, when we say we’re dedicated to businesses, we back that up with support from expert engineers and industry-leading technology to provide the best service possible. This nomination is further proof of how we deliver an unparalleled level of business support to our customers on a daily basis,” says Gilpin.
For Dean of AUT Business School Geoff Perry, being aligned with the awards provides an important opportunity to build on the School’s existing engagement with industry.
“The Excellence in Business Support Awards are regarded highly among industry, providing organisations the chance to benchmark their performance alongside others in their field. As a Business School, it’s important for us to celebrate the businesses that contribute to the economic and social development of our region, so that together, we can continue to add value to the changing world of business,” says Dr Perry.
The robust entry and evaluation process of the awards enables finalists to reflect on how effectively their organisation achieves business excellence in all key areas including leadership and planning, customer and market focus, provision of business support, evaluation and improvement, and business results.
The winners will then be announced on 25 October at a black-tie gala dinner in Auckland. The Supreme Award will be chosen from the category winners.
