ADVERTORIAL: Celebrate business with The East Midlands Top 500 Companies 2020

We are delighted to announce the launch of the East Midlands Top 500 Companies 2020. This is taking place online over the next few weeks, culminating in a virtual round table event in late June.

The East Midlands Top 500 Companies 2020 is a new index which celebrates the business success of the East Midlands as a region with a very strong, diverse and resilient range of firms.

These businesses are at the heart of the East Midlands economy and are most likely to drive growth and create jobs in the future. Their prosperity affects not only their workforces, supply chains and the communities around them, but ultimately everyone in the region.

For the first time we can see the range and strength of our leading businesses in the East Midlands, in the ‘Three Counties’ area covered by the East Midlands Chamber. It supports a regional approach for using shared business intelligence to support economic development across the region.

It will help to promote the region and help make it more successful. Everyone can join the fan base of people who want the East Midlands become more resilient and competitive.

The Top 500 is based on historic data from Companies House accounts submitted between July 2017-June 2018 and will be updated yearly. The Top 500 Index provides a baseline for comparison in future years since it comprises data predating the effects of Brexit and COVID -19. It includes companies with their registered offices located in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.

The Top 500 will be unveiled next week from 4 June onwards, with further coverage including reports on key industrial sectors, how businesses are responding to the effects of COVID-19, and mini-features on top companies in the region. It culminates in a virtual round table event in late June.

The EM Top 500 team is a partnership which includes researchers from De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) (Dr Rachel English, Professor David Rae and doctoral researchers Deji Olagboye and Ngozi Eneh Ojo); University of Derby (Alexandra Charles, Professor Marc Cowling); Nottingham Trent University (Dr Will Rossiter) working with Reach Media and East Midlands Chamber.
