Staff at a Worcester-based environmental consultancy were proud to be awarded Micro Business of the Year at a prestigious business awards ceremony.
Focus Ecology, whose offices are in Hallow, scooped the title at Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber Business Awards 2019 on 4 July.
The business was also highly commended by the judges in the Excellence in Professional Service category and were shortlisted for Employer of the Year.
Fern Fellowes-Day, co-director of Focus Ecology alongside Graham Davison, said she was proud of what the team has achieved.
“Over the past few years the team have worked really hard to grow Focus Ecology and develop it into the multi-disciplinary company it is today. We are exceptionally proud to be announced Micro Business of the Year, and feel this award is an excellent opportunity to get our name out to a wider audience and expand the business further.”
Judges found that Focus Ecology had demonstrated tremendous growth in turnover and profitability since its launch in 2010 to scoop Micro Business of the Year.
It achieved this through implementing innovative marketing strategies, effective staff training and development and through the trialling and continued development of digital technology to aid efficiency.
Focus Ecology’s core area of expertise is in the production of specialist ecological and arboricultural reports and advice to support planning applications.
