Why should you enter our sponsored Best Employer category at the Norfolk Business Awards 2019?

Alongside Birketts we are proud to once again be sponsoring the prestigious Best Employer Award at the Norfolk Business Awards 2019, which are now open for entries.

The Norfolk Business Awards are the opportunity to come together as a business community and to celebrate the many inspiring and progressive organisations in our region. Norfolk has such an incredible range of business sectors that make up a vibrant local economy. It is home to multi-nationals, SMEs, small businesses and a large number of family-owned firms who recognise the value of happy employees and the benefits of growing staff skills and retaining top talent. This is what makes Norfolk such a great place to work and to do business, and why many organisations could be in the running to win the coveted Best Employer Award and further strengthen their employer brand.

We are always particularly thrilled to be able to sponsor the Best Employer Award. As a specialist professional recruitment company, we know how important staff engagement and workplace culture and values are when it comes to recruiting and retaining high-calibre employees. Even in these uncertain times, there is a continued appetite for sustainable growth, and providing opportunities for people to enjoy stimulating and rewarding careers here in our region. The working world has changed and people want to be part of a business whose success is measured by an engaging culture and its reputation in the market. This award will celebrate the organisation that has achieved great success by putting people first, having clear values and engaged employees that are excelling in their field.

By entering the Best Employer Award, organisations will have the opportunity to demonstrate how they have made significant progress in their people and talent strategy through engagement, learning and development, retention and employer brand. They can also showcase how the organisation’s vision, values and purpose are embedded, reward and recognition strategies are driving performance, positive and inclusive cultures are being created and its approach to employee wellbeing and community support.

Through the judging process, we are always delighted to come across undiscovered gems that have put staff engagement at the forefront of business. The winning organisation will achieve an external accolade which highlights how its success and growth can genuinely be attributed to putting people, values and culture at the heart of everything it does. The winner’s story will share and promote why it is a business which everyone wants to be part of and how it is changing people’s lives.

The organisations entering the Best Employer category will also be required to also complete the Best Employers Eastern Region employee survey, providing real-time data on employee engagement levels within the organisation.
