What the voters said:

• The best comprehensive survey that I have ever seen. Mr T.S., Scotland
• I have learnt about some companies and organisations that I didn’t know existed just by doing the survey, so now I’m going to surf the web.
• I have not heard of these awards till this evening, but it was interesting to see which organisations had been nominated.
• This made me realise how few of these 50+ organisations I have heard of! I will be looking them up to find out what they offer.
• I wasn’t aware of some of the companies in the lists - so has increased my awareness. I’m looking forward to seeing the winners!
