C&IT launches Best Places To Work 2020

A chance for agencies to be recognised and stand out as the best employers in the events industry.

C&IT's Best Places to Work report has been designed to help event agency team leaders develop the best possible working environments for their staff, while recognising outstanding workplaces and initiatives.

The Best Places to Work Awards allow agencies to benchmark their company against their competitors. They highlight the top workplaces and initiatives that make organisations stand out from the crowd.

Being assessed by senior HR professionals also allows you to develop your workplace and create the best possible working environments across the industry.

Not only can you showcase the best aspects of your workplace to recruit new talent and make your team one that people want to be a part of, but the awards also show your employees that their workplace is the best in the industry.

The workplaces you have built and the teams that make them are worth celebrating!

Categories and awards

The awards consist of three main categories:

  • Large agency (51+ UK employees)

  • Mid-size agency (21-50 UK employees)

  • Small agency (0-20 UK employees)

Entrants will also have the opportunity to enter additional ‘Spotlight’ categories that will recognise outstanding practices around Reward, Culture, Organisational Health and Mental Health, giving you additional opportunities to be rewarded.

Spotlight categories:

  • Mental health & Wellbeing

  • Rewards & Benefits

  • Learning & Development

  • Recruitment & Retention

  • Diversity & Inclusion

  • Young Talent

Once the awards have closed for entries, the judges determine a gold, silver and bronze winner in each category.
