Barnsley Council will host the Best Bar None and Healthy Workplace Awards night on Wednesday 19 September to celebrate the work done by Barnsley businesses who provide fantastic examples of innovation, ambition and leadership.
Best Bar None is a voluntary accreditation scheme, supported by the Home Office, which recognises excellence in Barnsley’s nightlife and accredited venues show that they are serious about safety and service.
The process of becoming a Best Bar None accredited venue is not an easy one as each venue must meet over 80 standards, providing evidence to show they match up to each one.
The Best Bar None accredited town centre pubs, and clubs are Che Bar, Wildcats, Joseph Bramah, Zinc, Annie Murray’s, Digital, Silkstone Inn, 00 Bar, The Open Kitchen, Parkers Café Brasserie, Corner Pin, Shakespeare and Arcade Ale House.
Alongside the accreditation, there will be four awards given out for Best Bar, Best Late Night Venue, the People’s Choice Award following a public vote and an Overall Winner.
The 2019 Barnsley Best Bar None Scheme will also be launched on the evening, and all town centre licensed venues are invited to take part.
Meanwhile, the Healthy Workplace awards have been introduced, for the first time this year to recognise and celebrate the good work taking place in businesses across Barnsley to improve health and well-being in the workplace.
It's great that employers are recognising the business benefits of investing in the health and well-being of their workforce and how being a caring employer providing ‘good work’ enhances their company reputation and image.
The awards evening will showcase some excellent examples of the good practice that is taking place.
Businesses from the private and public sector will be attending the evening, including XPO Logistics, Amalgamated Construction, Distinction Doors, the NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, DWP Child Support Agency and NPS Barnsley.
There are three Healthy Workplace awards up for grabs on the night: the Best Health and Well-being Intervention/Initiative Award, the Workplace Health Champion Award and the Healthiest Barnsley Business Award.
