The 28th Annual Western Sydney Awards for Business Excellence (WSABE) provides an opportunity for businesses to achieve recognition for their excellence.
Last year, the WSABE Awards included the North and South Western Sydney area, providing exposure and reach across the entire Greater Western Sydney region. The main objective of the Award hosts, Parramatta Chamber of Commerce, is to continually evolve the Awards Program to build on the regional growth of the third largest economic powerhouse in Australia.
Celebrating its 28th year, the annual Awards will showcase excelling small, medium and large businesses that strive to benchmark themselves with similar businesses in Sydney’s West.
Entrants are recognised for their excellence in innovation, marketing, sustainability, business ethics, customer service and education among others.
All businesses across Western Sydney are eligible to enter and the category winners of the aligned NSW Business Chamber categories qualify as State finalists in the NSW Business Chamber awards, subject to meeting the awards terms and conditions.
The Judging Process
The Western Sydney Awards for Business Excellence selects judges who are experts in areas of business relating to each category.
The judging process remains confidential and takes place online. Multiple judges are assigned to the same category after which scores are collated and averaged to produce the final score. Once a final score is awarded, entrants who do not meet the minimum benchmark score are eliminated. Entrants who meet the benchmark are announced as finalists.
The entrant with the highest score becomes the winner of the category. If scores are tied for first place, then the award is given to all those who scored the highest.
