The main objective of the Better Business Awards celebrates organizations and individuals that excel in different areas of responsible business.  In 2019 we have expanded the awards to include more categories to give opportunity to more organizations and individuals to demonstrate support for areas of good business and show long-term commitment to good corporate citizenship.

 

Our Award Categories:

Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an increasingly important part of any company.  From the early days of simple (though important) Philanthropy CSR has become an integral corporate activity.  Globally employees are placing increasing importance on a company’s CSR actions in their decision to work for that company.  Companies now find that attracting the best talent – and retaining that talent – is reliant on their company having not only a great CSR programme but also on how they communicate that programme to the world.  CSR is also being integrated into the mission of a company and is no longer seen as something “other” or additional.

Diversity

Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion is at the heart of great business.  Companies around the world now recognize that it is the rich diversity of a workplace that creates innovation and helps modern companies to thrive.  Beyond simply inclusion companies are now very aware that it is in the diversity of ideas and backgrounds that the future of innovation lies.  We are aware that across different organizations in Taiwan, some fantastic, innovative work in equality, diversity and inclusion is taking place.

Social Enterprise

Social Enterprise, it uses business methods to solve problems in society and despite the seriousness, many are thriving with as many reporting growth last year as conventional businesses in the world.

Social enterprise is a world trend.  Social enterprises are a kind of social innovation, and effectively solve social or environmental problems via a sustainable business model.  The major purpose of social enterprise is to pursue public interest and solve social problems.  It doesn’t rely on government grants or donations from the private sector.  The development of social enterprise in Taiwan is still in the early stages but is getting wide attention. Creating a suitable social business development environment requires public, enterprise, and government to work together.  Only in this way we can encourage social enterprise in continuous innovation and steady growth.

Best Innovator Award – Innovation in Healthcare

Taiwan is a health advanced country and the government is also encouraging creativity measures to improve people’s life, improve the health system. The most important thing is to help people in Taiwan live longer with a balance resource, a good place for investment and embed the concept of Patient Focus. In the healthcare industry, people should always be the first.

Innovation in Healthcare, open to Taiwan-based and international companies (company limited or company limited by shares) and under the banner of the British Chamber of Commerce in Taipei Business Awards, will provide a great platform to celebrate and share the achievements and learning from organisations in this important area.

Business Leader of the Year

A diverse and inclusive workforce is critical to running a sustainable and successful business. A business leader should aim to harness the benefits of diverse teams to drive greater innovation, better identify and manage risks, enhance collaboration and improve workforce agility.

Diversity and inclusion principles form part of everything an organization does, helping to attract, develop and retain the best people and build an inclusive environment for everyone, free from bias and discrimination.

This category invites submissions for a business leader who has consistently demonstrated leadership in relation to the advancement of the diversity and inclusion agenda within his/her organisation.
