Flagstaff Winner of Excellence in Social Enterprise Award!

The Flagstaff Group has won the Excellence in Social Enterprise award at the Illawarra Business Chamber Awards on Friday night. This year is the first that the Excellence in Social Enterprise category has run, so Flagstaff are the first to officially accept the inaugural award. Flagstaff was also a finalist in the Excellence in Innovation category on the night.

CEO Roy Rogers was delighted with Flagstaff’s win of Excellence in Social Enterprise, and attended the ceremony with Group Sales and Marketing Manager Karen Burdett, and two of Flagstaff’s employees Michael Borg and Gail Lewis. “We are so proud to accept this award on behalf of all of our employees and staff, whose hard work has made Flagstaff the fantastic social enterprise we are. We’d also like to thank our customers and community partners who work with us and allow us to deliver our service to our community everyday”, Roy said.

The winner from each Regional Business Chamber award category will proceed as a finalist into the NSW State Business Award ceremony on 17th November in Sydney. Flagstaff are now gearing up to prepare for these State awards, as well as being finalists in another prestigious award category; the NSW/ACT Regional Achievement and Community Awards, in the Community Group of the Year award category, with winners being announced in Newcastle on Friday 10th November.
