“The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the highest accolade a business can receive,” said Mark Prisk, UK minister of state for business and enterprise. “The standard of this year’s winners highlights the great work being done by businesses of all sizes to help boost the growth of the UK economy.”
An award made by the Queen
The awards are made by the Queen on the advice of the prime minister, who is assisted by an advisory committee that consists of representatives of government, industry and commerce, and the trade unions. The awards programme, which was inaugurated in 1966, is designed to confer approval on UK businesses. Receipt of a Queen’s Award is an indication of a business’s level of success.
Comments on the Award
Brian Groom, writing in the Weekend edition of the Financial Times for 21 April, reported that the judges noted “the highest ever standard of entries” and said this “marks a timely achievement in the Monarch’s Diamond Jubilee year.”
Robert Woolston, DCA’s managing director, stated, upon taking possession of the award: “We are so proud to have been granted this award and pleased for the growth and performance of DCA to be recognised in such an exciting way. The board of directors would like to thank all of our staff and clients for making this possible.”
