Best Companies Special Awards – Celebrating the very best in innovative and outstanding engagement practice
The annual Best Companies to Work For awards ceremony provides the perfect opportunity for Best Companies and The Sunday Times to give special mention to organisations demonstrating creativity and innovation in different areas of engagement.
Our Special Awards are a way of highlighting organisations that have not only shown commitment to employee engagement by making the List but have implemented initiatives targeted at specific areas of their employees’ workplace experience.
There are seven Special Awards presented, two are based on employee survey scores alone:
- Best Improver
- Best for Leadership
The other five Special Awards are judged based on information provided by the organisation:
- Innovation in Engagement Practice
- Giving Something Back
- Learning & Development
- Discovering Potential
A list of entries for the five judged Special Awards is drawn up by identifying the organisations that score particularly highly in areas of engagement relating to the award itself. These entries are shortlisted based on the organisations’ responses to questions we ask about their best practice in these areas. The shortlists are then anonymised before being reviewed by a panel of Best Companies judges.
