Do you know a business that operates in Western Australia and deserves recognition for diversity and inclusivity?

APM is delighted to announce we are sponsoring the inaugural 2020 RISE Business Awards to recognise the achievements of WA businesses.

There are eight awards open to businesses including the highest honour, and APM-sponsored award, Western Australian Business of the Year.

APM is Australia’s largest provider of Disability Employment Services and is dedicated to supporting businesses with increasing diversity and inclusivity throughout their organisation.

Judges will be looking to recognise those businesses which continue to navigate difficult conditions while maintaining a diverse and inclusive culture and employee safety and wellbeing, alongside their business operations.

The RISE awards are open to all private or public organisations and offer local businesses to showcase their recent achievements.

Under the RISE (Resilience Innovation Spirit Entrepreneurship) banner, the awards will also recognise those organisations who have risen to the challenges of 2020.
