Get Ahead VA nominated for two Women in Business Awards

We are delighted to announce that Get Ahead VA has been shortlisted for not one, but two awards in the upcoming Women in Business Awards 2018!

The Women in Business Awards “celebrate, encourage and inspire successful and aspiring business women in the South.” This will be the event’s fifth year, and awards will be given to business women from the Thames Valley, Solent and South Coast regions across eight different categories. These awards will honour women who have made a significant difference inside or outside their organisations, at all levels of business, from start-ups to senior executives.

Get Ahead VA has been nominated for the ‘Enlightened Employer – supporting women in the workplace’ award, which celebrates companies that have shown “exceptional commitment to gender equality in the workplace.” This includes taking action to promote inclusivity and create an atmosphere of encouragement for working women, through recruitment, employee development and flexible working.

Rebecca Newenham, founder and owner of Get Ahead VA, has also been nominated for ‘Woman Business Owner of the Year’, which is designed for female entrepreneurs who have shown “exceptional abilities in leading and mentoring other women,” and who have achieved great successes with their businesses.

Rebecca is extremely pleased with the nominations: “I am thrilled we have been recognised in these prestigious awards, which compare entrants from such a wide area. I am passionate about providing flexible work that enables highly talented women to use their significant skills. Despite recent advances in gender equality, many of our team still struggled to find meaningful flexible employment. By working with us they can work flexibly and remotely, when and where works for them. In turn, our clients benefit from a fantastic pool of expertise on a flexible basis, enabling them to stay agile.”

The nominations, which have also been reported on by The Business Magazine, are hugely exciting for Get Ahead VA, and we would like to thank everyone who has worked so hard to help us achieve this. The winners will be announced on Thursday 4th October 2018, at a gala event at Oakley Hall Hotel in Hampshire. Of course, we would be delighted to win in our categories, but above all we are looking forward to the opportunity to celebrate truly outstanding women in the workplace.
