Bridgewater Home Care were finalists in two categories, Employer of the Year and High Growth Business of the Year and unbeknownst to Phil, he was also listed amongst four candidates selected by the judging panel for the 2018 Special Achievement Award.

 

The Special Achievement Award is intended “to recognise an individual who has shown great strength of spirit and commitment in achieving business success.” Candidates are not nominated for this; they are specially selected by the judging panel after interviewing all nominees for the awards, Mr. Eckersley was shortlisted on the strength of his performance in the judges’ interviews and his caring and professional attitude to his business.

 

Phil set up Bridgewater Home Care in 2010, driven by his passion to provide the very highest quality of care to vulnerable adults in the community. We asked Phil how he felt about the surprise nomination and he said, “I am absolutely delighted to receive this 2018 Special Achievement award, but would like to dedicate this to my amazing team who always go above and beyond in everything that they do. A successful business is down to team work, staff satisfaction and a continuing drive to be the best in your chosen field”.

 

Speaking on behalf of 1 Events Media, the host and organiser of the awards, Managing Director Mubarak Chati said: “The E3 Awards have always been about more than just commercial success; they celebrate the impact that enterprise has on lives and communities across the North West. Mr. Eckersley is a fine example of that enterprising spirit and it’s right that his commitment should be recognised.

 

“Every year, the E3 Business Awards give us a new insight into the many talented and hard-working businesses that are thriving in the North West. Despite uncertain economic conditions, companies, social enterprises and individuals remain undaunted; they continue to grow, to create jobs and to improve people’s lives. Phil is a fine example of that enterprising spirit and the E3 Awards are all about providing the recognition that such people deserve.”

 

The whole team are delighted for Phil, and proud to be part of such a committed, forward thinking and caring business.
