We’re extremely excited to announce that SThree Japan was nominated for the British Business Awards for the first time this year. We spoke with the team in Tokyo to find out more about the awards and their reaction to the great news.
What are the British Business Awards (BBA)?
The BBA recognise excellence and promote success and innovation across all industries. The awards celebrate the important social contributions made by organisations through their commitment to community, ethical behaviour and environmental sustainability. These trophies are presented by Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Japan each year to mark outstanding contributions to the UK-Japan commercial relationship.
Celebrating important organisations’ social contributions
2017 marks the ten-year anniversary of the annual awards. Being a nominee in these awards is a great achievement for our team in Tokyo. They had the opportunity to meet some of Japan’s greatest organisations in terms of their innovation, entrepreneurship, business success and social contributions.
How did the team in Tokyo feel?
When talking about the awards, Grant Habgood, Managing Director of SThree Japan, said, “It was an incredible honour to be recognised as not only one of the best in our industry but as one of the top British companies in Japan. It’s a tremendous achievement considering our brief history of just over four years here. It makes me excited to think of what we can achieve moving forward as we endeavour to deliver on our purpose of bringing skilled people together to help build the future.”
Chris Reilly, Director of SThree Japan mentioned, “It was an amazing evening and very inspiring to learn about some of the fantastic British businesses that are flourishing in the Japanese market. Being nominated alongside leading British brands like Burberry and (the eventual winners) Aston Martin as a “Company of the Year” in Japan was quite humbling and is testament to the hard work everyone in SThree Tokyo has put in to getting the business to this stage so far. Hopefully we can win next year!”
