Our hard work at The Insurance Emporium just keeps getting recognised at the moment – we have been nominated for yet another award! Recently, we’ve been in the running for nationwide accolades, such as the Customer Experience Awards, Insurance Choice Awards and more. However, this time we’re aiming to stand proud in our home city of York. We’re excited to say that we’ve been shortlisted for this year’s Press Business Awards!

Category is…

Our name has appeared alongside a number of prestigious companies and businessmen and women from York, all hoping to win in our respective categories. According to The Press, this is the most widely-entered edition of these awards for the last five years. The category we have been nominated for is Large Business of the Year.

As long as I’ve got my suit and tie!

The awards ceremony will be held at York Racecourse on the 15th of November as part of York Business Week. We’ll be scrubbing up well for a black tie ceremony and dinner, hosted by BBC presenter and master of ceremonies Colin Hazelden-Brice. As well as having our fingers crossed that we’ll win in our category, there’s also an overall Business of the Year accolade that we’ve got our eye on!

Keeping it real

We made the cut for the shortlist thanks to a range of creative business measures that we’ve taken that have been particularly successful. For example, we built our website with a view to making it very easy-to-use, free of jargon and even ensuring that our “small print” is clear to see. Overall, we aim to make insurance policies that are best suited to each of our customers’ needs, which is why they can be tailored according to our policyholders’ requirements.

I’ve been everywhere, man

Over recent years, we’ve really been getting our name out there in a number of ways. For example, you might have seen Mr Benn’s triumphant return to television during a break in Coronation Street, amongst other prime time telly appearances, when he appeared in our advert on a safari adventure. What’s more, we know a lot of you have liked our activities on social media. Plus, you might have seen some of our crazy PR campaigns, such as when we took to the cobbles of Micklegate in our very own soapbox racer!

Yorkshire-born and bred

Chief Executive Officer Francis Martin said: “The Insurance Emporium are delighted to have been recognised by the York Press as finalists in their 2018 Business Awards in the Large Business of the Year category.

“We are a proud Yorkshire-based company who constantly strive for excellence, consistently delivering quality and value to our customers. We have achieved business growth in recent years through business innovation and through listening and responding to our customers’ needs. Reaching the finals in these Awards reinforces our vision of excellence and motivates us to reach even higher. Delivering excellence for our customers is an ongoing process for us.”

Here’s hoping we’ll be victorious at these awards, as it would certainly be an honour to receive such an accolade from our home city! But it’s not about winning awards for us, our main aim is to be there for our customers. That’s why our various lifestyle insurance products are intended to be tailored to suit you. Whether you’re looking to insure your pet, horse, wedding, caravan or something else, stop by The Insurance Emporium to see if we could protect your passions in life!
