SEVEN Irish firms are now through to the final stage of the European Business Awards.
Only 100 companies across the entire European region reached the Ruban d'Honneur status in the awards. The Irish companies who received it are Netwatch, Aer Lingus, Glennon Brothers, Helix Health, Saongroup.com, Coillte and Translink.
Over the past two months, a panel of judges made up of European business leaders, academics and entrepreneurs has assessed the 200 companies that made it through to the National Champions stage of the awards. Judges chose the top 100 businesses that stood out for their business accomplishments and their dynamism, focus and ethical standards.
