A nomination to be proud of

Posted on | Posted in News

Here at Wote Street People, we were absolutely delighted to hear that our very own Maxine Hart has been nominated in the Business and the Community category of the annual Place To Be Proud Of Awards!

These awards are organised by Destination Basingstoke and recognise the contributions made by the individuals, groups, organisations, places and initiatives that make Basingstoke such a dynamic community and a brilliant place to live and work.

Individual categories are sponsored by locally-based businesses and the awards are supported by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, Festival Place, Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, with media partners Gazette Newspapers, The Breeze and BBC Radio Berkshire.

Community first

Maxine is nominated alongside Lamb Brooks Solicitors and The Champion Group and all three have been acknowledged for their contribution to the local community. Maxine comments:

“Community is very important to me and I feel this should apply to business as much as our private lives.  We should treat everyone with respect and consideration regardless of their age, background or circumstances.

“Running a local recruitment agency, we try to ensure that we reach out to all demographics, hence our work with Basingstoke Consortium for the education leavers right through to the M3 Job Club for the professionals who need help. I believe that charity starts at home, therefore with our own staff we offer flexible working to allow for a genuine work/life balance. Oh, and bribe them with food quite a bit too.”

Want to vote for Maxine?

Visit the Destination Basingstoke website before 5th May and vote for Maxine here. Why not share this page on Facebook or Twitter to encourage others to vote too (we know we will – even if she doesn’t bribe us with cake!).

The winner will be announced at the Place To Be Proud Of Awards evening on 6th June 2018 at the Haymarket Theatre in Basingstoke. Good luck to all the nominees.
