The ITSPA Awards have never been held in such difficult circumstances and, in this most challenging of years, I am delighted that the Awards have recognised some fantastic companies who have achieved great things in the past twelve months. The whole industry can be proud of its contribution to wider society and the role it has played in keeping the country going throughout the pandemic. With the shift in working behaviours necessitated by the crisis, our industry has arguably come to the forefront of the nation’s attention, and it is clear that the next twelve months will be of great importance in the evolution of our industry. ITSPA will continue to ensure our members’ voices are heard at this crucial time.”
