New categories unveiled for Employee Benefits Awards 2017


The Employee Benefits Awards 2017 will feature new categories to enable organisations to celebrate their work in additional areas of their benefits and engagement strategies.

The best benefits to support diversity and inclusion category has been designed to recognise employers that make effective use of benefits to foster a culture of diversity and inclusion in the workplace. This might include the provision of benefits that suit a range of lifestyles and family structures, ensuring benefits communications are fully inclusive, or supporting employee networks and LGBT+ ally schemes.

In the new best employee value proposition category, judges will be looking for an organisation that has developed a stand-out proposition that supports the employer brand, HR strategy and business objectives.

The new categories will stand alongside well-established categories, such as best healthcare and wellbeing benefits and best benefits communication, giving organisations plenty of scope to defend their titles and showcase their achievements.

The deadline for entries to the Employee Benefits Awards 2017 is Friday 9 December 2016.
