Now in its 11th year, KEiBA is staged and produced by the KM Media Group and Kent County Council to recognise and reward excellence in Kent’s businesses.

There are 16 categories available for entry and you can enter a maximum of four categories.

Among them, and new for 2019, is the Valuing Disability in Business Award.

It is open to any business, irrespective of size or sector, that can demonstrate commercial success through valuing disabled people who work for, and interact with, the business.

Also up for grabs this year, is Apprenticeship of the Year and the Commitment to the Environment Award.

KM Group chairman Geraldine Allinson said: “In business we often don’t have the time to stop, think about and recognise the many achievements that happen within our work environment - we are too busy focusing on the needs and activities required to keep our businesses fit to drive into the future.

"However, the KEiBAs allow businesses to do just that, take stock and celebrate, it is not onerous and it is a great way for Kent businesses to focus on the really great talent they have. I urge all Kent businesses to enter the KEiBAs, there really is nothing to lose and the positives that come out of being nominated and winning an award."
