TOP employers are being sought in the final push for entries in the Test Valley Business Awards.

The organisers say there is still time to be recognised in all the categories included in the annual competition, but they are specifically looking for companies who have gone the extra mile in looking after their employees.

The category is sponsored by Simplyhealth, who have supported this award for a number of years. The company promotes well being at work and is a major employer in the region.

Councillor David Drew, economic development and tourism portfolio holder for Test Valley Borough Council, said: “We know from our own relationships with local businesses that there are some terrific employers, who have adapted to suit the many changes in the workplace which we have all had to face in the past 18 months.

“It’s by their action that the local economy is well placed to grow once more. They give us confidence in the future.

“So we urge any employer who has done all they can to keep their teams on track and happy to enter these awards. That’s whether they have one or even a hundred in their staff.”
