We’re delighted to announce that Communicourt has been chosen as a finalist in three categories at the SME National Business Awards 2023. From hundreds of applicants, we’ve been selected as finalists in the Positive Impact, Service Excellence and Employer of the Year categories.  

“This is the first time we have ever been in the race for this kind of award. It was a pleasure to go through all the positive things Communicourt has done and achieved in the last 12 months with the rest of the team and we look forward with anticipation to the awards evening.“ 

William Scrimshire (Managing Director, Communicourt)

Each application to the SME National Business Awards is rigorously appraised and scored by four judges, selected from a panel of 30 leading businesspeople from a wide range of fields. 

Positive Impact  

This category is all about innovations and adaptations which allow businesses to thrive, to the wider benefit of society. The judges are looking for businesses which make real, positive change and take active steps to continue boosting their impact.  
When applying for this category, we were especially pleased to have an opportunity to show off The Access Brief – a library of free resources we’ve developed to assist any and all legal professionals working with a client who has a communication difficulty – not only in cases where an intermediary is allocated.  

Service Excellence 

This category focusses on the quality of the service businesses deliver to clients and customers, from going the extra mile, to consistently ensuring an outstanding service and striving to continually improve on that offer. Communicourt was lucky enough to have a wealth of wonderful testimonials from service users, judges, barristers and solicitors to support the application to this category.  

“I want to just take this opportunity to thank your intermediary for his time and patience with me last week and Monday of this week. I want to let you know how good he is at his job, I just could not have gone through that without him by my side.”

Employer of the Year 

This award will be won by a business which invests in its team’s growth and wellbeing. Applicants were asked to tell the judges, “how you as an employer look after your employees so they take care of your business”. From Team Days and remote yoga classes, volunteering days, Diversity Ambassadors, a Neurodiversity Network and our active internal hubs, we had lots of great things to share, which help make Communicourt a community. 

The winners of the 2023 SME National Business Awards will be announced on 1st December 2023. Very best of luck to all of our fellow finalists!
