The Covid-19 pandemic has created huge challenges for businesses, but in many cases there have also been opportunities to adapt and seek new income revenues.
If your company has a coronavirus success story, we’d love to hear from you.
The 2020 Hunts Post Business Awards has launched a new award category to recognise the difficult trading conditions and the measures businesses have taken to stay afloat.
We want to hear from businesses who have either adapted their own business model or supported the community through the uncertainty of the pandemic.
Whether you’re a manufacturer who has been making PPE; a catering firm who has been providing lunches for frontline workers or even if you have found your company has been able to reduce local unemployment levels by hiring more staff during this time of crisis, we would love to hear your stories and experiences.
