A-One Insurance Group are named finalists in the highly regarded Dorset Business Awards for the 2017 ‘UK Health Insurance Investing in Dorset Award’.
This award recognises Dorset companies which understand the benefits of supporting Dorset businesses and buying goods and services locally wherever possible.
The AOIG team has grown in the past 24 years from a one-man band to a team of over 100 employees.
Head judge for the Investing in Dorset category, Sales & Key Relationship Manager at UK Health Insurance, Kirstie Pruett, said, “We are delighted to confirm that A-One Insurance Group is one of our three finalists for 2017. Choosing the finalists was particularly tough as the standard of entrants was extremely high with so many businesses doing so much to engage locally.
For us, AOIG demonstrated their active commitment to both spending locally as well as embracing the concept of developing business relationships with other Dorset-based organisations and companies.
The winner will be announced at the Dorset Business Awards Gala Dinner in November.”
Ian Penfold, Managing Director of AOIG said, “We have been operating for over 20 years in Dorset and Hampshire, and we are dedicated to investing in the local economy and into local business as we play an active part in the business community. We are 100% committed to working with local chambers, BIDS, trader’s groups, and industry memberships and business leaders. Where ever possible we purchase locally, we use a number of local services and local consultants, they are all more than capable of meeting our needs and are committed to us and our business.
We prefer to work with local businesses and suppliers as we can build excellent relationships and it helps to keep our spend in the Dorset / Hampshire economy.
Supporting our local economy here in Dorset has a direct impact on our own business too, as buying locally ensures excellent customer service, economic growth, brand loyalty and prosperity.”
