Why a Women In Sales Awards?
Encouraging diversity in the workplace is increasingly seen as a way of making companies stronger in the modern business environment. One key area of diversity is encouraging women to enter and excel in traditionally male-dominated fields. Sales is one such arena.
Sales is the lifeblood of every company. However, it is still very heavily male-dominated. The Women in Sales Awards has been created to bring a greater awareness of the need for gender diversity in sales and in executive leadership teams, as well as help grow the pipeline of sales talent. The awards are an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women in sales roles.
The Winners and finalists will be recognized at an awards ceremony on the 5th of December at the Savoy, London where their excellence will be celebrated.
How will the awards help the nominees, finalists, winners and their companies?
- Just being nominated for an award has merit and a ROI all its own. Appreciation is a fundamental human need and taking the time to submit a nomination on behalf of your employee tells them you care about their development and support their career.
- Being nominated, becoming a finalist and possibly winning will have a positive impact on the confidence and performance of the individual, and therefore a positive impact for the company.
- The winners and finalists will become role models for other women in their firm and ambassadors for their organisations. Their achievement and recognition will act as an inspiration to others within the company.
- Mentorship plays a vital part in the advancement of everyone’s career. The winners and finalists will be able to share advice and mentor others in the company based on their successful approach to sales.
The awards is an opportunity to celebrate the positive achievements of women in sales roles; and as a company highlights your leadership in diversity and inclusion.
