Hertfordshire has been shortlisted in two categories for the Better Business for All Awards 2016.

The awards are sponsored by the Government’s Better Regulation Delivery Office (BRDO), and are aimed at local authorities that go above and beyond to support their business communities.

Awards judges shortlisted Hertfordshire in the Partnership category because in spite of being relatively new to the programme, a strong partnership has been established, which is already helping others to do the same.

They said: “Hertfordshire’s dedication and commitment makes them one of the strongest partnerships. They are an example of what can be achieved and have been praised by Kent and Medway for helping them get underway.”

In the Innovation category judges were impressed that Hertfordshire has taken the initiative in developing a training programme around its own needs, rather than waiting for somebody else to do it.

David Williams, cabinet member for enterprise, education and skills, said: “It is really good news that the council has been recognised for its dedication and commitment to encouraging strong business partnerships.

“It is testament to the hard work that other programmes are now attending Hertfordshire’s training sessions to learn how to replicate best practice in their own programmes.”

Winners will be announced at a BRDO ‘shared learning’ event on March 8.
