Over the last year the entire industry has seen a massive war for talent. The aftermath of redundancies and experienced individuals leaving the industry has resulted in a market where demand outstrips supply. Jobseekers have options. Therefore in order to attract and retain the best people you need to be seen as an employer of choice. You need to be seen as one of the Best Places to Work.
The events industry is powered by its people and so the best way to have competitive advantage, deliver high standards and continue to grow is by having top talent on your team. By having the right recruitment procedures in place, by recognising and rewarding performance, by looking after people's physical and mental health and by developing their careers. All of which we assess and benchmark as part of our awards.
Our Best Places to Work awards are more than just an accolade though. We don't just want to recognise those that are excelling in employee engagement, we also want to help inform those that are still on their journey to make positive changes. This is why everyone who enters will be sent a copy of our employer benchmarking report (worth £200) to measure themselves against their peers and identify where there is room for improvement.
Now is the time to shine a light on your company, it's culture and have it recognised as one of the Best Places to Work.
