Martyn Hart, chief executive of National Outsourcing and a judge for the category, said: "Enabling hospitality and retail businesses to transform through their people, Learnpurple has demonstrated real impact through innovative, tailored and outcome-based solutions."
Jane Sunley said: "We're absolutely delighted to be a finalist at the National Business Awards. For a small business, with only 15 employees, our standing in an impressive list of business enablers is a clear demonstration of the hard work our people undertake to ensure our clients receive a clear, and tangible, return on their investment."
