"I am delighted that our digital journey has been recognised as inspirational by the Digital Enterprise judges!"
Olivia Routledge, YPS Marketing Manager
The accolade comes after several months of working alongside Digital Enterprise to improve their online offering across their website and social media channels.
Digital Enterprise is a partnership programme run and supported by scores of councils across the Leeds city region, Northern Powerhouse and the European Union to support small to medium sized businesses with digital growth. The ‘Top 100’ campaign scheme they run is in place specifically to champion 100 businesses in the area that can evidence great digital innovation and improvement.
As YPS are always keen to grow and improve, the company applied to Digital Enterprise back in 2018 for guidance and support. The assistance came in the form of workshops, training days and most importantly, a major project to improve the YPS website. As a result of this work, Digital Enterprise have now recognised that the businesses' online presence is vastly more appealing and user-friendly for their audiences – culminating in the nomination for the Top 100 campaign.
As a result of this achievement, Yorkshire Packaging will be profiled in the upcoming Top 100 special report, which is disseminated across businesses in West Yorkshire, including to notable public figures such as politicians, business leaders and entrepreneurs. Their team is also invited to attend a Celebratory event at Everyman Cinema in Leeds on 27th June, for the launch of the report. Attendees will include key partners, local authority representatives and politicians as well as press and media.
