It's all smiles at Workspace HQ after the business was named Workspace of the Year at the 2016 British Small Business Awards on 20th October at the Grand Connaught Rooms, London.

Another Thursday night, another awards ceremony for Workspace! Last night it was the inaugural British Small Business Awards, celebrating the small business community and recognising the UK’s best sole traders and micro businesses, as well as the service providers and advisers that support them.

The Workspace of the Year award was one of 14 awards announced throughout the ceremony, bringing together some of the most innovative business minds in Britain under one roof.

We're delighted to say that Workspace won the ‘Workspace of the Year’ award, which focused on quality of facilities, locations and technology-enabling capabilities.

As the team went on stage to accept the award, the judges praised Workspace for its extensive portfolio of creative spaces, including features such as SME-friendly flexible leases and the crèche at Wandsworth, as well as our ‘location, location, technology’ mantra.

Dave Stallon, commercial director of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) and judge at the awards, says that small and growing businesses in Britain face an increasing number of challenges so it’s important to recognise those that have really excelled.

"I have been hugely impressed by the standard of entries this year – the businesses and inspiring people that run them should be very proud of how they have performed and I wish them every success in the future," said Stallon.
