The Award was presented at CBA’s Annual Lunch at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London, on 26 April 2017, before an audience of over 1,100 industry representatives and their guests by impressionist, comedian, and writer, Rory Bremner.

CBA’s Community Interaction Award aims to recognise an outstanding contribution to community interaction by a member company, or one of its employees, or group of employees.

The winner of CBA’s Community Interaction Award was the 2M GROUP LIMITED

The Award reflects the strong involvement of the company, in working with young people in schools, colleges and universities, to promote science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and providing many with workplace opportunities.

Liran Maller, Group Director of Human Resources, received the Award on behalf of the company.

(1) The CBA’s Community Interaction Award was inaugurated in 2012. Many CBA member companies – and their employees – give their time and resources to support local good causes, schools, or sports teams. The CBA Award is an opportunity to acknowledge these initiatives and a member company’s commitment to the community in which it operates.
