London, 14 August 2012 - The National Business Awards in partnership with Orange has today revealed over 150 of Britain 's leading businesses and business leaders as finalists in the prestigious awards programme. Ten companies have been named as finalists for the Croner Employer of the Year award. Croner is the UK 's largest provider of workplace information, software and services, part of global information services group, Wolters Kluwer. The Croner award will go to the company that can best demonstrate how the design and implementation of its human resources policy has created a stimulating and supportive workplace, with a well-motivated, well-trained, ambitious, innovative and integrated workforce. Finalists for the Croner Employer of the Year award are:

Announcing the finalists in this category, Andy Hague, Managing Director of Croner, says: "As UK business continues to face challenging times, it is ever more important for employers to design strong HR policies that help to attract, develop and retain the best employees. "It's clear that this year's finalists have stepped up to the challenge with a range of exemplary initiatives and innovation. I would like to congratulate all the finalists of the Croner Employer of the Year Award and we look forward to the challenge of judging the winner." Finalist representatives will now prepare presentations, which will be judged by independent expert juries at London 's iconic Gherkin, to determine the overall winner to be announced at the awards ceremony on 13 November. Alex Evans, Programme Director of the National Business Awards, says: "Illustrating the link between engaged staff and profit, finalists for Croner Employer of the Year are attracting talent in new and innovative ways and keeping it through shared ownership and vision." National Business Awards finalists represent a combined annual turnover in excess of £135 billion and collectively employ over 700,000 people. They cover activities as diverse as digital marketing, international road haulage and logistics, water engineering and life sciences: sectors that reflect key areas of UK capability with high potential for international expansion. The diverse size of the companies entering is also huge – ranging from a business with an annual turnover of less that £50,000 to high growth and high value companies with multi-billion revenues. Baroness Virginia Bottomley, Chair of Judges, says: "This year has been a challenging environment for British businesses; these finalists demonstrate how companies are succeeding in the current climate through innovation, originality and tenacity. It's good to see a broad range of companies in sector and size – an impressive representation of the potential that British businesses have. Congratulations to all our finalists."
