This year, for the first time ever, organisers of the European Business Awards have introduced a new video element to the awards and also abrand new online public voting system. The company video with the highestnumber of votes for Ireland will automatically get through to the next round of voting and become a National Champion.

The public vote takes place between 6th September and 17th October 2012, which gives each company just over 40 days toget as many votes as possible. This is where you can help. We have produced a video submission, which has been uploaded onto the European Business Awards website (

Home Instead Senior is asking supporters to visit the European Business Awards website and vote for Home Instead Senior Care Ireland.

Ed Murphy, CEO, Home Instead Senior Care says: “With just over 40 days for people to vote, we are hopingthat the public will get behind us and take sometime to view our video and casta vote. We believe our video submission gives us an opportunity to explain thebackground to our business and highlight why we are successful despite thecurrent economic conditions. We hope that anyone interested in Home InsteadSenior Care and our sector of business will enjoy watching our video and votefor us.”

In addition to the public vote, a panel of expert judges will be viewing the videos and will award National Champion status to between five and 20 other organisations from Ireland. Judging of the National Finalists will take place from 6th September with National Champions being announced in November 2012.

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards says, “This new process provides a greater opportunity for companies to engage with supporters in their own country as well as presenting their achievements to a wider audience across Europe. These videos show some ofthe most successful and sustainable companies in Europe and we hope that anyone interested in business will take some time to watch the videos, either from their own country or from other countries and then vote for their favourites.”

Between November 2012 and January 2013, the National Champions will be reassessed by a third panel of judges made up of Europe-wide businessleaders, academics and entrepreneurs who will award the top 110 organisations the coveted Ruban d’Honneur status. Finally, after face-to-face presentations,the Ruban d’Honneur recipients will be honoured and the names of the overall winners will be revealed at a Gala awards ceremony in April 2013.
