After finding out only a few months ago that Firstpoint had been shortlisted as Finalists for the Bristol Life Awards in the Business Services category, the team is still feeling pretty chuffed, to say the least!
With a prestigious panel of judges announced earlier this month and the awards evening fast approaching, company directors Chris and Duncan have already dug out their penguin suits from the back of the cupboard! Not surprisingly they were pretty dusty, and perhaps more upsettingly, a little tight! But that’s ok, there’s plenty of time to sort that out. Isn't there?!?!?
According to Chris, Managing Director, “Whilst it was somewhat a surprise to be selected as a Finalist out of so many other amazing businesses throughout Bristol, with all the hard work that the team has put in over the past 12 months, it feels great to be recognised for our efforts!”
"In what has been a challenging year for everyone, it's been a great opportunity to reflect on the team's achievements...and there have been a lot!”
We started the year by launching our exciting new brand, moved into new offices, and then continued the year by welcoming a number of new team members and gaining 2 new accreditations including Investors in People and the ISO 27001.
In addition, we have made huge progress in our mission to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet, since partnering with Ecologi earlier this year. So far we have planted 6,384 trees, saved 163.76 tonnes of carbon dioxide, and most impressively made our entire UK operation carbon neutral.
But perhaps our most significant achievement of all and the one we are most excited about, is our huge investment in a bespoke CRM and tracking platform, which we hope to launch later this year. Aiming to be technology leaders within our industry and further streamline our operational systems, this investment will be paramount to our future growth and will further enhance the experience for our clients. Whilst we’d love to tell you more, it's of course top secret, so you’ll have to watch this space!
Well, that's enough of singing our praises for now. We know that every finalist across all the categories is well deserving of an award and we wish everyone the best of luck for the night!
We look forward to a well-needed evening of fun and networking with some of Bristol’s best!
We’ll see you there!
