Pure is delighted to be sponsoring the Best Employer category in the EDP Business Awards for the third year. This year, the EDP celebrates the 25th anniversary of the awards.
It is a category we feel a particular affinity with as co-founders of the Best Employer initiative which seeks to identify and develop the culture and engagement levels within organisations. As professional recruiters we help organisations to recruit, retain and develop the best people and being a ‘Best Employer’ is a vital part of this process.
An engaged workforce is a happy workforce and organisations with high engagement achieve twice as much profit as those with lower levels which has a huge impact on the local economy.
We are looking for an organisation that has a genuine commitment to its people beyond the latest fads in employee benefits and a commitment to creating the best environment for their people to thrive.
The judges for the Best Employer award are looking for organisations that have a commitment to their employees with respect to employee benefits and the creation of an environment that inspires its people to deliver the best for their organisation and its customers.
They will also be looking for evidence of strong internal communication and evidence of how staff are kept informed and made to feel included in the success of a business, listened to and have the ability to influence.
The judges will also want to see how the organisation recognises and rewards exceptional performance and what sets it apart as an exceptional employer, including any community or charity work in which it is involved.
