You asked, some pleaded, so we have obliged. The deadline for entries into the inaugural Hive Awards is now THURSDAY, 29 FEBRUARY. There's no time to lose, get those entries in! 

Why should you enter? Here’s our top five reasons why. 

Highlight achievements and experience
Judged by a highly regarded panel of influential industry professionals and experts, a Hive Award recognises the effort, passion, and expertise of your company and how it is one of the industry’s top performers driving the sector forward.

Stand out from the crowd
The Hive Awards are designed to celebrate industry excellence and increase the profile and credibility of your company that can unlock new opportunities in the sector. Securing a Hive Award will set you and your business apart from your peers and strengthen your position in the industry.

Impress investors and stakeholders
The Hive Awards offer the vehicle to shine a light on a project or product that may not have received the attention it deserved and the impact it had on business growth. In turn, it shows investors and stakeholders the calibre of work being done, acknowledges your team, and may even attract more investment down the track.

Increase recruitment and retention profile
An ongoing industry challenge is recruiting the right people and retaining them. The Hive Awards provides the opportunity to raise recognition of your company, showing you are one of the top operators in the sector and increasing your attractiveness to high-quality, discerning candidates.

Benchmark with other companies
The Hive Awards night is an opportunity to raise your company’s profile but also hear about what other companies are doing and how they are doing it, which may inspire new ideas and practices for your operations.
