Top companies are being invited to compete for awards
Northern Ireland's top firms are being encouraging to get involved in Deloitte's Best Managed Companies Awards Programme.
The business advisory firm's programme recognises companies operating at the highest levels of business performance, and shows off some of Northern Ireland's top business talents.
And those successful in this year's scheme - which is sponsored by Barclays - will join a list of 100 leading firms, which have been recognised in the seven years since the programme began.
The winners over the first seven years of the programme have had combined revenues of over £7bn.
Glenn Roberts, head of private markets at Deloitte in Northern Ireland, said the awards were "about confidence of our winning companies and of the indigenous business sector".
"The winners to date epitomise the resilience and the ambition that is present in firms right across the island of Ireland.
"Deloitte is now calling on companies from across Northern Ireland that are similarly confident, and are achieving their goals of being more innovative, more agile, more ambitious and more expansionary, to apply."
