Merton Best Business Awards 2022 Launches

Merton Best Business Awards to launch at New Wimbledon Theatre this May.

The 2022 Merton Best Business Awards will officially launch at New Wimbledon Theatre on Tuesday 24 May, with a new set of categories to celebrate and recognise businesses that have not only survived the events of the past two years, but have shown resilience, excellence, innovation and best practice in the borough.

The launch event will provide guests with an ideal opportunity to meet past winners, sponsors and network with other Merton businesses – as well as a very special behind-the-scenes tour of the theatre.

Guests will also be inspired as previous winners Lu-Ma café (who walked away with three impressive awards last year) talk about how their win has made a real difference to their business. Whatever the size or function of your business, there is a category for you.

The awards this year include:

  • Best Enterprising Business: for businesses that are demonstrating true entrepreneurial spirit, market-leading growth and outstanding leadership.
  • Best New Business: for those that have started in the last two years and are really getting noticed for what they do.
  • Employer of the Year: for businesses that invest in their employees and know the benefits that arise from attracting, developing and retaining staff.
  • Best Independent Business: to showcase some of the best independent businesses in the borough and to celebrate the wealth of colour and creativity they bring to Merton.
  • Champions of Change: for businesses that have made exceptional contributions, influenced, or brought cultural change to support and champion diversity, equality, and inclusion in the workplace.

Members of the public will still have a chance to vote for their favourite business that is offering outstanding customer service. This award is truly the customer’s voice!

Diana Sterck, Chief Executive of Merton Chamber of Commerce and the organiser of the Merton Best Business Awards, said: 

“Over the past 10 years, the Merton Best Business Awards have become a key event in the business calendar. I’m delighted that they are back for 2022. We’ve come through so much together and it’s time to celebrate that.”
