DWA Nominated for Business Excellence Award

The 2019 Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade Business Excellence Awards nominees are out, and the Durham Workforce Authority is proud to have been nominated for the Not for Profit/Charity category!

Established in 1994, this was the 25th anniversary of the Business Excellence Awards, which were created to recognize achievements and excellence in business performance of organizations serving Ajax-Pickering. Nominees are selected by their business peers, followed by the winners being voted on by an independent panel of judges.

The DWA has been working hard to increase the availability of information specific to Ajax and Pickering, including local labour market information and demographics on both municipalities found in our Durham Data Portal. This information can be used to help local businesses understand things such as the available supply of labour, therefore helping them strategically plan their businesses accordingly.

Other nominees in the Not for Profit/Charity category included Abilities Centre, AI Hub – Durham College, Alzheimer Society of Durham Region, Business Advisory Centre Durham, and Girl’s Inc. of Durham, with Girl’s Inc. of Durham ultimately winning the award. Congratulations to all of the nominees!
