Spirit Healthcare recognised as UK Healthcare Company of the Year; CEO Chris Barker awarded accolade of UK Gamechanger of the Year
Spirit Healthcare is proud to have been announced as one of the UK winners in the 2017 ACQ Global Awards.
The 12th Annual ACQ5 Global Awards honour the leading deal teams, firms and professionals whose activities set the standard for international markets. This year, companies and individuals representing every major market in the world became finalists.
“Experts whose intimate knowledge and expertise in the corporate, cultural, financial and legal arenas are redefining our industry,” says Jake Robson, Group Editor of The ACQ5.
“The 2017 ACQ5 Global Award winners represent the best of breed in all industry sectors and have earned these honours by standing out in a group of very impressive finalists. Operating an independent nomination process, every year we seek their assistance of our readers, the industry itself, in recognising industry leaders, eminent individuals, exemplary teams and distinguished businesses, which we believe represent the benchmark of achievement and best practice in a variety of fields.”
The ACQ Global Awards’ objective is to gather quantitative and qualitative information from and about the gamut of industry sectors to be able to give a set of “Best of” awards and to empower end users to make smarter, more confident decisions.
This year, a record number of nominations totalling 83,121 votes scored entrants’ professionalism; experience; value to money; and responsiveness. Each nominee received a numerical rating from 1 – 5 in each area, with those scoring an average 4-start rating or above achieving short-list status, from which the winners were peer-selected. All Award Winners for the 12th Annual ACQ5 Global Awards are now released in the annual ACQ5 Global Awards 2017 publication.
Chris Barker, CEO, Spirit Healthcare, adds, “We are honoured to have been recognised by industry peers for our business model and corporate values. Spirit Healthcare aims to make the UK’s population healthier and happier, and our collaborative approach to working in partnership with patients and NHS healthcare organisations is our core underpinning ethos.”
The ACQ5 Global Awards, launched in 2005 and now in its 12th year, were the first of their kind in the global legal / financial publishing industry. The nature of the industry is changing, and this year we have made fundamental changes to the categories in our ACQ5 Global Awards to reflect this. The main purposes of these changes are: to focus on organisations and individuals that can demonstrate an ability to deliver services and skills to meet clients’ needs and adapt to market and regulatory conditions and to consider candidates that may not always be global in scale, but are truly world class in the way they are run and in the services they deliver to clients. ACQ5 Global Awards decisions are firmly based on peer nominations following the receipt of detailed submissions from market participants and extensive year-round research into the markets in all global region. ACQ5 Global Awards cover global categories, best-in-class awards in all regions in over 100 countries around the world.
