Here at AXA PPP, we’re committed to reducing our impact on the environment actively managing our energy, paper and water consumption, as well as carbon emissions and waste.”
He continued: “We want to help celebrate the success of small businesses within this area, hear their stories and learn how they’re making strides to become more sustainable. Events like the Leicester Mercury Business Awards showcase the best of small business and the shortlisted candidates are great examples of people who share our ambition.”
The Leicester Mercury Business Awards brings together businesses of all sizes, and sees companies celebrate the success that members of the regional business community have had in the last 12 months. Finalists will go head to head in 14 different categories, with the winner of each award decided by the category sponsor.
Mike highlighted how AXA PPP Healthcare contributes to the region’s business community. “As a healthcare company with over 20 years of history within the Leicester area, we’re keen to continue our support for local people and industry.

Mike discussed what the company’s key focuses are this year: “Health technology is revolutionising the way people access health services and information. Through health tech we can readily monitor aspects of diet, exercise, fitness, health symptoms and the effectiveness of medication. For our part, we’ll be looking to further support small businesses who want to engage and empower their employees to take steps to better health. We will continue to explore new ways we can meet the healthcare needs of small businesses, extending beyond the traditional role of health insurance.”
