Run by leading online job-board Caterer.com, these prestigious industry awards showcase the very best hospitality employers, celebrating the efforts they have made to become truly great places to work.
The Best Employers in Hospitality Awards have grown organically over the three years since launch. The awards are not judged by a panel but completely independently by the employees of the companies who enter, via an online employee engagement survey provided by Purple Cubed. The Best Employers in Hospitality Awards are unique in this approach within the hospitality industry.
The 15 category awards will go to employers from all sectors and of all sizes, from huge national brands through to small independently owned properties. The most coveted award will go to the employer in the number one spot who will be named as the best employer in hospitality
The winners will be announced, along with the Top 50 Best Employers in Hospitality, at a glittering black tie awards dinner on 30th September at the Lancaster Hotel, in London. The event sees hundreds of HR professionals, hospitality employers and their teams come together for an evening of fine food, wine and entertainment. Table and ticket bookings are now being taken via the event website.
Director of Caterer.com, Ian Burke says: “What makes these awards significant is that they uniquely recognize the best employers in the hospitality industry based ONLY on the opinion of their employees. The most talented candidates naturally want to work for the best employers and these awards allow hospitality companies to showcase what sets them apart. Entries this year have come from businesses of all sizes, from all sectors and from right across England and Wales. The number of entries has increased year on year and for the 2013 Awards nearly 6000 employees have completed the surveys, which is incredible. To be shortlisted and in the Top 50 Best Employers in Hospitality is a massive achievement in itself, and the 30th September awards will be a celebration not just for the winners but for all in the room!”
