Our Hard Work is Officially Paying Off!!!
We are thrilled to announce that we have joined an elite group of businesses, after being included in the inaugural Forbes Solicitors Reinvention and Resilience Top 50 – an insightful report featuring North West companies that have innovated and diversified during the Coronavirus pandemic.
As you may know, 2020 has not been an easy year for businesses: but this report celebrates those in the North West who have adapted to the pandemic: those who have responded to the public health crisis, offering services that have grown their businesses in the middle of lockdown, and in our case, hospitality which has innovated in order to survive!
Our Managing Director, Celia has said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have been included in the Forbes Solicitors Reinvention and Resilience Top 50. As a business, we have worked tirelessly during the pandemic to continue to support our couples and it’s testament to our team that we have been recognised in such a way.”
Though the Hospitality and Events sectors have been hit hard during the pandemic, we have fully adapted to remain open: organising Zoom meetings, offering couples back-up wedding dates free of charge, keeping all our couples up to date with our latest developments, and implementing our Book with Confidence guarantee.
Forbes Solicitors compiled the research – including nominations from small-to-medium-sized companies across all sectors – in a bid to showcase how businesses are generating revenue and protecting jobs in the wake of COVID-19.
The Reinvention and Resilience report identifies key trends that have seen companies ‘pivot’ to improve resilience by re-inventing their business, service, product or sector.
Themes evidenced by North West businesses in the report include:
- Reutilisation; companies finding new ways to use existing equipment or materials to create new products
- Rising risk tolerance; businesses dialling down their aversion to risk, whether it’s through M&As or opening new sites
- From linear to flat management structures; companies embracing more democratic work cultures to accommodate resource shortages, investing in their team and digital ways of working
- Always open; companies investing in digital transformation and mobile, and new shift patterns to keep themselves always open for business
- Innovation; businesses using COVID-19 as a reason to diversify and expand their product and service offering
- Demand; responding quickly and efficiently to a surge in demand and capitalising on an overnight opportunity
- Community / CSR; highlighting the charitable and public sector efforts.
Oliver Burton, Chief Executive Officer at Forbes Solicitors, commented: “The next six months remain unclear for businesses, but the many companies across the region that are showing huge resilience in the face of COVID-19 should be celebrated. With confidence in their own business, and the region’s economy, we can all be reassured that our entrepreneurial region will work together to weather this storm.”
