Throughout England and Wales, restaurants, hotels, pubs, bars, caterers, venues, and tour operators are now competing for the coveted title of ‘Best Employer in Hospitality 2012’, created by leading hospitality recruitment website, Caterer.com.
The Caterer.com Best Employers in Hospitality awards have so far attracted interest from leading industry names, as well as smaller businesses that are able to enter the independent categories. Last year’s Best Employers in Hospitality winners included overall winners The Glassblowing House, with category awards going to Rezidor Hotel Group, Exclusive Hotels, Hallmark Hotels Manchester, St. Michael’s Manor, Living Ventures Ltd, Baxterstorey (Transport for London Office Greenwich), The Peach Pub Company, Walsall Football Club and Cherryred Recruitment.
The 2011 Winners showreel can be viewed online by visiting www.bestemployersinhospitality.com/gallery.
With the deadline approaching for England and Wales entries to close on the 2nd April, businesses are being encouraged to enter early so they leave enough time for employees to complete the employee engagement survey before the cut-off date.
Entry into the awards – run in partnership with employee engagement specialist, learnpurple – is free. Businesses simply enter online at www.bestemployersinhospitality.com and will be emailed a survey link which they circulate to each of their employees for completion online.
The learnpurple survey ranks all entrants based on their responses. This creates the Best Employers in Hospitality Top 30 league table, and highlights a winner for each of the award categories. There is no judging panel and every entry that passes the 30% threshold in employee responses – will receive a FREE report with their survey responses.
Caterer.com’s director Ian Burke commented: “The BEH 2012 England and Wales awards are designed to recognise employers – large and small – that invest in their people and make it core to their business. We welcome all hospitality businesses to enter the awards and we look forward to recognising these rising stars at our awards dinner on the 28th May at the Lancaster London”.
Any UK hospitality business, large or small, can enter the awards for free at http://www.bestemployersinhospitality.com/entryform.aspx.
