BESA wins industry Covid award

BESA has become the first ever winner of the Covid Innovation Award as part of this year’s HVR Awards.

The judges praised the Association for quickly setting itself up as a go to point of contact for business and technical information from the very start of the pandemic.

It brought the sector together around a series of online events, including daily webinars hosted by chief executive David Frise, and fostered a sense of community that helped individuals and businesses deal with the crisis.

The judges were also impressed by how quickly the Association re-deployed its entire staff to provide succinct and timely guidance and support including guides, templates, and explainers. They carried out the research and stayed on top of all the issues, so business leaders had quick access to the information they needed via a dedicated COVID-19 website area and live briefings.

BESA also made hundreds of pieces of published guidance, FAQ’s, latest news, and information freely available to the whole industry including regular health and safety updates from a specially formed expert committee.
