  • Morson shortlisted in Manchester Evening News Business of the Year Awards 2019

  • In 2017, Morson was the recipient of the coveted Mitchell Henry Prize Award

Morson is delighted to have been shortlisted in the Manchester Evening News Business of the Year Awards 2019 in the category of ‘Turnover £100m+ sponsored by PwC’.

This year marks 27 years of the awards, which celebrate businesses of all shapes and sizes across the region.

In 2017, Morson was the recipient of the Mitchell Henry Prize Award, recognising a lasting contribution to the Greater Manchester region.

In the 2019 awards, Morson will be up against musicMagpie and Verastar for the accolade.

The submission, based around our 2018 business activity, highlighted another record year as we delivered growth across our core sectors, whilst infilling into other areas. The year saw us focus on expanding into emerging markets through strategic acquisitions and organic growth, particularly professional services, construction and IT.

It highlighted how Morson utilise our position, size and strength to challenge status quos be leading conversations and developing meaningful initiatives that overcome issues in the sectors in which we operate. This incorporates ED&I as well as training and talent development.

£1.5m+ was also spent enhancing our recruitment technology and business intelligence tool, Vencuro, to automate and seamlessly manage end-to-end tasks, whilst providing hiring managers with access to real time data at the touch of a button. At present, 100+ clients and 6,000+ people use Vencuro and the technology was recently shortlisted for the Building Innovation Awards 2019 for its integration with construction giant Murphy.

This is allied with our numerous benefits, incentives and opportunities to motivate staff resulting in excellent retention rates.

Speaking of the shortlist, M.E.N. business editor Shelina Begum said: “This year’s competition has seen an immensely high standard of entries and all 27 companies can be proud of being shortlisted. “We look forward to another fantastic celebration of the companies that are excelling across Greater Manchester and are grateful for all entries.”

Winners in each category will be revealed at a black tie awards evening on Thursday 14th November at the Principal Hotel, Manchester.
