In Retrospective: UCCI Excellence Awards 2019

Started in 2015, the UCCI Excellence Awards have gained a reputation as a serious and credible platform for recognising good work done by businesses thus contributing to the economy of Southern Rajasthan. In the third year of the awards, the committee took upon itself the challenge of developing a vision for the awards.

Recognition that Measures, Ensures and Endures growth in Business Community

"At UCCI, we want to measure and recognise excellence within our business community to build an environment where we learn, share and inspire each other for enduring growth" - Nandita Singhal, Chairperson, UCCI Excellence Awards Committee.

Through this recognition, the body measures key performance indicators that reflect business performance and potential. In addition, as a catalyst, the environment desired is a network that is supported by an infrastructure (physical and learning resources) that allows reflection, awareness (of our business and the knowledge outside it), openness (to talk about our difficulties and be open to new ideas) and support. This will enable the business community to retain its vitality through generational changes while remaining true to business ethics and supporting the community at large.

At present there are 4 awards for the Manufacturing sector; 2 for CSR and 3 awards in the Services sector. Applications in 2019 were invited from 12 districts in Rajasthan, as mentioned above.

Since its inception, the award process has been constantly improved while maintaining its integrity through ensuring a free and fair process. This year, the awards body has developed an online form, which automatically populates a database to make the process smoother. Like any IT project, this too had its teething troubles. Technical and logic as well as data analysis problems have been sorted as they surfaced and in due course has led to an improved portal for the coming year.

Data, which is stored with strict confidentiality, goes through a screening process followed by a professional audit. Furthermore, an eminent jury is presented with a short list from which it decides the final outcomes of the awards. 

Future plans include visits by some members of the executive committee to the businesses that have made it to the list of finalists and to establish the credibility of the award so that more companies apply. This will make it easier to deliver the vision with which this award has been established.

Steering towards Excellence: Why did UCCI institute the Excellence Awards?

There is a lot of untapped potential in the business community of Southern Rajasthan. There are many exceptional businesses in Southern Rajasthan - those that have been here for decades, others that are bringing a new wave of commercial and industrial development to the region. They are not only surviving in this increasingly competitive market but are succeeding in building national as well as global presence.

Recognition is the first step towards publicising these success stories and inspiring others to take up new challenge. Since 2015-16, UCCI, with the institutionalisation of the UCCI Excellence Awards, has left no step unturned to ensure that its true purpose be fulfilled. The awards are not just a celebration of business excellence but an encouragement to pursue it ever harder. 

To achieve this the awards need to be perceived as unbiased and open for all. There could have been no better platform for achieving it than at UCCI which is a democratic body of business enterprises. If this initiative could evolve into a template of self-assessment for businesses; in turn, foster an environment of healthy competition with a robust review process it would grow a generation of businesses that were learning continuously. This is a growing need of modern businesses.

With sponsors backing the awards for ten years, UCCI plans to conduct the programme every year. That said, if there is no suitable winner in any category, no award will be given in that category.
