( This year Advanced Security has been recognised for excellence in the Large Business $10m – $100m turnover category, Advanced Security Group Limited will join other finalists across 11 categories in this years’ AUT Excellence in Business Support Awards.

For Dean of AUT Business School Dr Geoff Perry, being aligned with the awards provides an important opportunity to build on the Schools existing engagement with industry.

Dr Perry said: “The Excellence in Business Support Awards are regarded highly among industry, providing organisations the chance to benchmark their performance alongside others in their field. As a Business School, it’s important for us to celebrate the businesses that contribute to the economic development of our region, so that together, we can continue to add value to the changing world of business.”

The robust entry and evaluation process of the awards enables finalists to reflect on how effectively their organisation achieves business excellence in all key areas including leadership and planning, customer and market focus, provision of business support, evaluation and improvement, and business results.

Finalists now have until 14 June to submit their final applications. The winners will then be announced on 5 September at a black-tie gala dinner in Auckland. The AUT Business School Supreme Award will be chosen from the category winners.

Evaluation of all entrants will be overseen by The New Zealand Business Excellence Foundation using the international Baldridge criteria. Evaluators are drawn from the Management Department of AUT Business School.

The Excellence in Business Support Awards are the only national performance measure available to New Zealand business support organisations.

Now into their eighth year the awards continue to produce high quality finalists from a large number of strong entries. The awards were set up in 2005 by Sarah Trotman, now Director of Business Relations at AUT Business School.
