OSG Group has been named as a finalist and Ruban d’Honneur recipient in the 2015/16 European Business Awards sponsored by RSM.

It was chosen from 678 National Champions by an esteemed panel of judges made up of European business and political leaders, academics and entrepreneurs. The company is one of 110 Ruban d’Honneur recipients chosen from across Europe.

OSG will now undertake a face-to-face interview with the judges in the hope that they will be named as one of the overall winners of the Awards’ 11 categories at a Gala Ceremony in June.

OSG is an independent, Irish-owned specialist Third Party Services Administrator employing 450 people in 8 locations across the country. Having built on a history and heritage as Chartered Loss Adjusters, today OSG provides a diverse and extensive range of outsource services for the Insurance and Financial Sectors locally and internationally, including motor claims management, property and liability loss adjusting, and sales acquisition.

OSG has been nominated in the Employer of the Year Award category, where employers must demonstrate the ability to inspire and motivate their staff by enabling career expansion, operating equal opportunity schemes and understanding the importance of work-life balance.

The European Business Awards engaged with over 32,000 companies from 33 countries this year, a 33% increase from last year, and a record-breaking number for the competition now in its ninth year.

Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: “To survive in this economic climate is hard enough, so to innovate, prosper and grow in the way this year’s Ruban D’Honneur recipients have is truly remarkable. Europe needs more companies like these. Well done to OSG”

Jean Stephens, CEO of RSM, and the sixth largest global network of independent audit, tax and advisory firms and the lead sponsor of the European Business Award, said: “At RSM, we help middle market companies to operate in the increasingly complex and rapidly changing global business landscape. The Ruban D’Honneurs announced today are typical of those companies that our member firms work with on a daily basis, and so it is encouraging to see their growth and prosperity. We wish them well in the third and final round of judging and look forward to announcing the overall category winners at the Gala event”.
