Following the success of the first ever Hull and East Yorkshire People in Business Awards (HEY PIBA), the awards are set to return on Friday 3rd July 2020 bigger and better. With nominations now open there is no better time to acknowledge the hard work of your employees.

The vision of the awards is to raise the profile and truly celebrate talented, hardworking and dynamic employees.

Attracting over 100 nominations the inaugural event last year was a sell-out. As a result, this year the event has relocated to the state-of-the-art Bonus Arena, increasing capacity by an additional 100 guests. This isn’t the only thing that’s grown in 2020 with new categories added.

HEY PIBAS versatile list of categories provides recognition for everyone from apprenticeship to management level. The highly popular team impact award has this year been split into two categories making the award more accessible to businesses of all sizes.

“I’m delighted to bring the Hull and East Yorkshire People in Business Awards back for another year. We had an amazing sell out first event that celebrated a wide range of talented individuals within our region and we hope to celebrate them on an even larger scale in 2020. I’m looking forward to finding out all about this year’s nominees and rewarding the deserving winners”
