We are thrilled to announce that Nottingham-based HR consultancy My HR Hub has won the prestigious Small Business of the Year award at the 2021 NottinghamshireLive Women in Business Awards.
Announced on Wednesday 5th of January 2022, the Small Business of the Year award seeks to highlight the best female-owned small business (fewer than 50 employees) in Nottinghamshire that has achieved consistent business growth since being established.
Commenting on winning this award, Founder and Director of My HR Hub, Rebecca Bull, said:
“I am over the moon that we have been named Small Business of the Year. In the 2018 Women in Business Awards in Nottingham, after I won the ‘Sole Trader of the Year’ Award, I was asked by a lot of people if I planned to carry on as a so-called ‘lifestyle business’ by myself, or continue to grow and take on a team. I love helping businesses, I am very ambitious – but how would I managed to find a team with the same passion?
“Well, I think I got lucky! In 2020 – mid-pandemic – Rachael, Sam and Tilly joined and without doubt enabled 2021 to be our biggest year of growth yet. We support some incredible businesses spanning 25 sectors across the UK and internationally and are proud to work with each and every one of them.
“2020-21 was the transition from a ‘sole trader’ to a small business. Personally, this is what I like to feel this award represents: not for the number of clients we have or our business growth, but for our team’s commitment to our core values and our consistency of service to each and every business we work with.
“So, to be named ‘Small Business of the Year’ is a testament to our new team and personally a very proud moment. I would like to dedicate this award to them – Rachael, Sam and Tilly – thank you for joining me on this journey… here is to 2022 and our ambitions and exciting growth plans – helping more businesses navigate through the many challenges and opportunities this new business world is bringing.”
Now in its eighth year, the NottinghamshireLive Women in Business Awards, sponsored by Hillarys blinds, aim to shine a spotlight on women in Nottinghamshire who have triumphed in business and recognise their inspiring work and achievements from the last 12 months.
The winners were originally set to be announced at an awards ceremony in December 2021, however the event was cancelled due to concerns around the Omicron variant.
