The Business Health Check


Every Telstra Business Award nominee who submits an entry receives a free Business Health Check report.

This is a robust document that details where a business is in good health and where it could perform better. But it’s not just an overview. It makes recommendations for how a business can improve its outcomes.

The Business Health Check is compiled for each entrant using the information they supply when filling in their Awards application. This is one reason the questions in the entry form are so extensive. While completing the entry can be time consuming, many Award participants say the resulting Business Health Check is one of the major benefits of the Awards process.

How the Business Health Check is compiled

Nominees complete the Business Health Check business diagnostic questionnaire online by answering about 120 questions across six key areas: 

  • Your business

  • Sales and marketing

  • Your customers

  • Your team

  • Planning and performance

  • Financials

The supplied information is then assessed by the NSW Business Chamber using international business benchmarks. Finally, the Business Health Check report is generated, giving a unique insight into the business and recommendations on how it can be even better.

How to access the Business Health Check

The Business Health Check can be downloaded from an entrant’s Telstra Business Awards account by logging in here. The Business Health Check is not part of the judging criteria for the Awards.
