Allstate NI wins top accolade in Belfast Telegraph Business Awards

Allstate NI is celebrating after being named Outstanding Business of the Year at the 2012 Belfast Telegraph Northern Ireland Business Awards.

Judges, chaired by economist Professor John Simpson, were impressed by how the company, which provides software development services and business process outsourcing solutions in support of its US parent's global operations, has contributed to the local economy.

Allstate NI, which has offices in Belfast, Londonderry and Strabane, also took the title of Excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility and the company's Pádraic Sheerin was named Young Manager of the Year.

John Simpson said:

"The judges were invited to select an overall award for a business whose application, or applications, evidenced a persuasive dynamic business making a notable contribution to the local economy. The decision on the award was influenced by several factors. Critically, Allstate NI submitted an impressive winning entry in the Excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility category."

Allstate NI won the award for Excellence in Corporate Social Responsibility. Sonya Kerr and Sarah Montgomery from Allstate NI were presented with the trophy by Daniel McLarnon, Group Corporate Development Director, Moy Park.

Allstate NI's entry for the Corporate Social Responsibility category was based on their X the TXT — Don't Text & Drive campaign which has reached over 100 schools in the past 2 years and a wider audience through a multimedia competition on Cool FM. Allstate NI works in partnership with the PSNI and DOE on the campaign with both organisations providing funding — a clear indication of the quality of the programme. Business in the Community judge, John Heaslip, said: "Allstate's 'X the TXT — Don't Text & Drive' campaign sets the standard for good corporate social responsibility. It shows that when a business uses their unique skills in partnership with others, they can really make a difference in their community. There were other admirable campaigns but Allstate embedded this campaign seamlessly and made a remarkable impact."

Pádraic Sheerin, winner of Young Business Person of the Year has worked for Allstate Northern Ireland for a relatively short time but has already made a significant impact on the business. Following a summer internship and a year's training at Allstate's corporate headquarters in Chicago, the maths and statistics graduate was tasked with setting up a Quantitative Research and Analysis group in the Belfast office at the age of just 24. With a clear vision and passion for excellence, Pádraic has spearheaded innovative and widely acclaimed projects, developed a rigorous programme for interns and new graduates and ensured that the Belfast group has earned a reputation across the Allstate Corporation as a hot bed of analytical talent.

The judges also noted the commendable shortlisted entries for Excellence in the Development of Management and Leadership and Outstanding Business Team of the Year.
