3 Things A Business Can Do After A New Contract Win

January 19, 2016

Over the years we have helped many organisations to win numerous contracts from Abbeycare and Nursing winning a place on the multi-million pound Sheffield City Council Supported Living Framework to Really NEET securing a £450k Reaching Communities bid from the Big Lottery.   One of the things organisations can often overlook is how to celebrate and make the most of their new win.   Here are three things your business can do after your next win:

 

  1. Write a Press Release – Ask the client if they would mind you putting together a press release to celebrate your win. This can be circulated to both local and trade press and used on the news pages of your website and across your social platforms. Obviously this has benefits for both yourself and the client in terms of raising both profiles.

 

  1. Celebrate with your team. In some cases this can be the ideal opportunity for a spot of team building. Whether it’s a few cakes in the office, a couple of beers in the pub after work or a slap up dinner. Doing something to celebrate can really motivate your team ensuring they are motivated and on board with the new project.

 

  1. Assess the market – once you have this contract in the bag what else could be next? The experience your organisation gains from one win can and should lead to other work – whether via tenders or by selling directly saying that you are a provider. For example, following their tender win with Sheffield City Council Abbeycare and Nursing went on to win a  contract with the NHS Sheffield CCG to provide Domiciliary Care, a significant achievement!
