WBD has been shortlisted for the Business in the Community award at the 2018 Business Leader Awards.
The awards celebrate the best of the South West's professional community, recognising business and enterprise across small, medium and large companies. The event will take place on 27 September at Ashton Gate, bringing together over 70 finalists from across 17 categories.
WBD has been recognised on the back of its successful Corporate Social Responsibility programme, building meaningful and sustainable relationships with regional not-for-profit organisations and supporting community projects and charities through fundraising, volunteering and mentoring.
Highlights of the past twelve months include raising more £40,000 in aid of St Peter's Hospice; the ongoing support for our national charity The Prince's Trust; our mentoring programmes with Oasis Academy Brightstowe and Bristol Sport Community Foundation; and our social mobility initiatives from apprenticeships, work experience and raising awareness of mental health in the workplace.
Bristol is WBD's second largest office where more than 230 staff are employed.
