Benefits of winning a Best Practice Adviser Award


Many international ifas may shy away from the idea of entering into industry awards because they think it’s too self-promotional and worry the entry might be too time-consuming to put together.


However, the benefits of entering and winning largely outweigh any reasons not to.


Entering and subsequently winning makes your company shine and sets it apart from your competition.


Here are four main advantages to winning:

  1. Elevate the status of your company
    Awards can raise the credibility of your company, its brand and products. An award also increases visibility of your firm 
  2. Educate and attract
    Awards can draw new customers and new employees to your business
  3. Improve company morale
    Current employees are excited to share the news of an award with others. Awards can also build motivation within your teams
  4. Increase customer loyalty
    Knowing that you are skilled and recognised for your work, expertise, team, product or service encourages customer loyalty and drives sales
