Home / News & Opportunities / Chamber News

Date: 21/09/2017

The winners of the World Chamber Competition have now been announced at the Congress Gala Dinner in Sydney’s Premier Convention Centre, Australia.

Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce was selected as a finalist in the Best Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Project after being recognised for the health and wellbeing scheme Worcestershire Works Well. The Chamber was competing against Chambers representing Brazil, Iran and India for a variety of CSR projects.
 
The Chamber was one of only two British Chambers to be chosen as a finalist in the competition, joining Business West Chamber of Commerce in the shortlisting for the event.
 
Sharon Smith, Chief Executive of the Chamber, said: "Although we are disappointed not to have won the Best Corporate Social Responsibility Project at the World Chamber Competition, I am pleased to congratulate the Brazilian Confederation of Trade and Business Associations for its award.

“Worcestershire Works Well is a fantastic health and wellbeing scheme that has already impacted over 28,000 employees in the county and we are looking forward helping many more businesses in the future.

"Being runner-up in the Best Corporate Social Responsibility Project category at the World Chambers Competition recognises the hard work and dedication put in by the Chamber, Worcestershire County Council Public Health, Community First, Sports Partnership Herefordshire & Worcestershire and Worcestershire Regulatory Services and the 97 businesses involved in the accreditation scheme."
 
The Brazilian Confederation of Trade and Business Associations has been commended for its Business Women Empowerment Programme, which stands for the set of actions undertaken from 2015 to 2017 by CACB’s National Council of Business Women.
 
The Chamber would like to extend its congratulations to Business West Chamber of Commerce for winning the award of Best Job Creation and Business Development Project at the competition. Being a runner-up in the World Chambers Competition has been a fantastic opportunity to represent Worcestershire on an international level.
