Franchise Awards

Franchises are a huge part of the economy across the world more than ever currently, from entrepreneurs seeking a new career path, to those wanting the ease and safety of working from home in certain sectors. With cultures that tend to grow and rise to meet the needs and demands of the consumers, the franchise industry truly shows no signs of slowing down.

For the third year, Corporate Vision Magazine are proud to host the 2020 Franchise Awards. After a huge success in 2019 in which we awarded the most transcendent individuals and businesses within the franchise industry, we are now seeking our 2020 champions!

We at Corporate Vision Magazine, aim to seek out the brightest sparks of leading franchisees, to the dedicated recruitment pioneers, to those behind the scenes in the franchise finance sector and also to shine a light on the franchisors whom to most, the opportunity would not be possible.

As with all Corporate Vision Awards, the 2020 Franchise Awards are based on merit, not the number of votes received. Our process works to ensure that we reward parties based on their excellence in the industry, the quality of their products and their dedication to service. To move successfully from nominee to winner, there must be evidence of extensive expertise and skills, dedication to customer service and client satisfaction with an ongoing commitment to excellence and innovation.

Once votes are received, nominees will then be contacted by our awards Coordinator - Jazmin Collins so they can accept the nomination and ask for more details regarding the program and the next stages.

The aim of the 2020 Franchise Awards is without a doubt to become a winner, the accolade provides you with affirmation that you, no ifs and buts about it, have outshone the competition. Enhancing your victory with visual reminders, allows for the promotion of your brand to extend even further, which in turn, can attract talented new employees looking to work for the best and new customers and clients looking to work with the best.

So, if you believe your commitment to the franchise industry are services are first class, follow the links below for more in-depth information regarding our process, criteria and judging panel please see below.

How long has Corporate Vision Magazine been in circulation for?

+

Corporate Vision was launched in December of 2014. Since then, the magazine has been published monthly to a global circulation of 155,000 business leaders, managers, recruiters and experts. The platform is bought to you by AI Global Media, a B2B digital publishing group founded in 2010. The group currently has 13 brands within its portfolio including luxury lifestyle, construction, healthcare and small business focused publications. AI Global Media is dedicated to delivering content you can trust to each of its readers, subscribers, clients and visitors.

Where did the nomination come from?

+

In the interest of nurturing an environment proven to produce a high response rate, we don’t ask nominees to reveal any personal identity. With regards to methodology, we often nominate candidates ourselves and, when it comes to voting, if you didn’t cast a vote through a self-submission, it is likely to have been cast via a colleague or client who has received one of our direct invitations. One of the main mantras of our awards system is that your ability to succeed is not linked to the number of votes received, meaning your award is presented purely on merit. In the interest of security and fairness, we are able to track unusual behaviour on our website to identify repeat votes and cyber-threats.

What happens if I agree to be shortlisted?

+

In the interest of focusing our efforts on relevant and eager candidates, we ask all nominees to accept their position on the shortlist giving people complete control in the decision on whether they would like to move forward with the award. Nominees who accept are subject to our scrutiny during the internal vetting procedure and are given the opportunity to present their own data to be considered alongside information collated by our research team. This can take up to 8 weeks for final assessments to be rendered.

Who makes the final decision?

+

We employ an entirely impartial panel of five individuals to conduct all research. At the helm of the panel, is a veteran academic leader with international academic and training experience and is well versed in research, fact-checking and mediation. This two-tiered system allows for a neutral mediator which we feel allows a more efficient method when determining individuals and companies most deserving of winning an award and has brought us much success and commendation throughout its use.

Is there a winner’s ceremony/award dinner?

+

The short answer is, no. We decided to not focus our efforts on a celebratory event. Despite being an enjoyable occasion, it doesn’t support our group’s philosophy of cost-effective marketing. We follow the belief that optional costs associated with an award are better placed in a year’s worth of online marketing for the winner rather than spending large sums on a ceremonial evening. Our press announcements are made digitally, online and across our network to enforce our position as digital publishers. We aim to provide you with the tools (both digital and physical) to generate real-world value.

What happens if I am deemed successful?

+

After you have been notified, we enforce a short press embargo while the programme manager liaises with you to establish your preferred method of coverage. Generally, our coverage takes the form of a digital celebratory magazine, but we also offer physical trophies, wall mounted certificates and plaques and digital certificates, web-based advertisements and press releases which can be custom designed for you or your company.

Are there any costs involved?

+

As mentioned, there are no compulsory costs in accepting a nomination or winning an award with Corporate Vision. We do offer a variety of paid additional benefits for our winners, but these are completely optional. To demonstrate our commitment to no mandatory fees, all our winners are offered a free of charge promotional package. Our company policy will always remain that, regardless of budget, our clients should always be able to garner the full value of the award and our seal of approval. We offer a variety of promotional opportunities to our winners, as we have an extensive network and we know, more than anyone, the wider business benefits from promoting industry awards.

Why does your email domain differ from your website domain?

+

Because we send a large volume of emails, we separate our campaign email sends from our transactional ones. This structure helps to ensure a prompt and thorough response from one of our diligent team members. The sending email address will always be recognisable but please contact us via the address on this page if you have any concerns.
