Awards are important to us because they recognise the hard work of our entire team and show that we’re moving in the right direction. They also help us recruit the best talent which can only lead to better products and services.
The Western Australian Industry and Export Awards honour and acknowledge those WA businesses achieving success in international trade. Vekta were excited to be announced as finalists for the C.Y. O’Connor Award for Excellence in Engineering and Technology and the Manufacturing Award, and winners of the Innovation Excellence Award.
The Telstra Business Awards has just reached its 25th year, aiming to recognise small and medium businesses, and for 2017 received over 500 applicants for Western Australia alone, with only the very top businesses selected as finalists.
The application process analysed all aspects of our business and gave us a chance to reflect on our growth from humble beginnings. Vekta is thrilled to have received recognition for the hard work the entire team has put in to building a strong, healthy, socially and morally responsible business.
The WA Industry and Export Awards support and encourage the state’s most innovative companies. We were proud to win the 2014 Small Business category against a very strong field. The award recognised our innovation across marketing, human resources, customer relations and strategy. Apart from the excitement of winning and progressing to the national finals in November 2015, the award process helped us reflect on what we do and how we can re-think and re-set for the future.
