O2 Business launches Blue Door Awards

Customers are at the heart of everything we do at O2, which is why we’re proud to launch a brand new awards programme: the Blue Door Awards 2019. Their aim is to recognise and celebrate some of the most effective ways our business customers have leveraged digital connectivity to drive customer satisfaction, employee engagement and supplier integration.

It’s a brilliant opportunity for organisations to showcase their work, raise their profile, and be recognised by O2 and their peers for the innovative ways they have employed digital connectivity.

Five award categories

There are five award categories that recognise how better digital connectivity can deliver more effective business outcomes:

  1. Using digital connectivity to improve customer satisfaction
  2. Engaging employees with better digital connectivity
  3. Integrating suppliers through digital connectivity
  4. Delivering business value through the connectivity value chain
  5. Giving back to the community through better digital connectivity

In each category, we’re looking for the most effective and innovative ways our business customers have leveraged digital connectivity. We will award a winner and runner-up for large enterprise businesses or public sector organisations, and for SMEs. Entries will be judged by O2 and an external panel of industry experts.

Who can enter?

Open now, the awards are open to all existing O2 Business customers with 10+ employees in the UK, whether you are an SME (10+ employees), a private sector large enterprise or public sector organisation that has implemented an O2 technology solution.

Key dates

Submissions are open right now, and will close on 12 September 2019. A shortlist will be announced on 24 September 2019. The winners and runners up will be announced at a special Blue Door Conference awards ceremony at The O2 on 10 October 2019.
