Merton Business Champions Crowned at High Profile Awards

A business that recruits new staff into cutting edge UK businesses has led the way at the Merton Best Business Awards 2016.

Over 250 people attended the high profile Awards Ceremony in Wimbledon where the winners of the Merton Best Business Awards sponsored by Merton Chamber of Commerce were announced.

“Tonight we have seen why Merton is such a great place to do business.” said Andrew Wakefield from the Merton Chamber of Commerce. “We have seen the crowning of the best across our local economy and we have witnessed the championing of local firms and what they do. It’s been a great evening”

The Overall Winner at the Awards was Eligo Recruitment, a business of thirty dedicated recruitment consultants who source market leading jobs and candidates in the cutting edge sectors of IT, Energy, Fire and Security, Digital, Medical and Events.

Eligo was established in 2001 by John Doherty and Andy Molloy and as a business they focus on delivering a professional recruitment service, with no compromise on quality or integrity.

“Our congratulations go to Eligo for winning this very special award.” said Gavin Stebbing from WSM. “They have shown by winning Employer of the Year and the Overall Winner that they are focused on delivering a first class offer to their customers and ensuring as a good employer they recognise that supporting the health and well-being of their staff makes good business sense.”

The hugely anticipated Customer Service of the Year Award, which was voted on by members of the Merton Business Community saw Tots Landing pipping Park Vetinary Practice to win the coveted prize.

Tots Landing Ltd was the brain child of Rob Palmer Williams. Being a father of two young kiddies, he wanted to be able to provide a safe, clean, fun soft play environment for the children of Wimbledon.

Over the last few years, Tots Landing has gone from strength to strength. Building a strong community feel to the place through fundraising for various charities they have been privileged to win numerous awards and are thoroughly looking forward to the next three years in business.

“Once again we have seen that we have such a depth of hard working, entrepreneurial and successful businesses in Merton.” said Diana Sterck from Merton Chamber of Commerce. “It is right that we come together to celebrate that success and it is right that tell local people how proud they can be of the businesses that serve the local economy.”
