Crawley company named one of the healthiest places to work

A CRAWLEY-BASED company has been named as one of the healthiest workplaces in Sussex.

CH&Co Catering Ltd and Civil Aviation Authority have been shortlisted for The Healthiest Workplace Award at Sussex Business Awards.

They join a shortlist of thirty two companies from across the county hoping to win one or more of the eleven trophies up for grabs - including the prestigious Sussex Company of the Year, International Business Award and Sussex Businessperson of the Year.

Celebrating business excellence across Sussex, the Awards are the longest established scheme of its kind in the county. 2011 marks the twenty-third anniversary of the competition.

The quality of the entrants has been so high that this year a new level of recognition has been introduced.

As well as the outright winner receiving a trophy the accolade of Highly Commended will be awarded to certain outstanding entries.

Organiser Caraline Brown said: “We are delighted with the response to this year’s awards.

“Around one hundred and fifty companies submitted one or more entries and the judges managed to visit around one hundred companies and individuals to draw up their shortlists.

“We’ve increased the spread across the county even more and we’re pleased to say that more than half of the entries have come from outside of Brighton.

“This year’s final decisions were made following some heated debate – but a great deal of consensus too.

“Congratulations to all the shortlist!”

The awards will be presented at the Grand Hotel, Brighton on Thursday December 1.
