Companies and entrepreneurs have six weeks to get their entries in for this year’s Barking and Dagenham Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.

Back for a second consecutive year, the recognition scheme features some new categories.

The Business and Social Responsibility prize goes beyond last year’s Green Business specification to include family-friendly working.

“I’d really encourage businesses to have a look around at themselves and work out what they are doing in terms of family-friendly working,” said Chamber president Mark Bass

“Some businesses might not consider themselves world-leading but very often small businesses help people to work and look after their employers, which is what this award’s all about.”
