Best Employers Awards 2018

The Best Employers Eastern Region 2018 Awards Conference took place on Wednesday 3 October 2018, celebrating the Eastern Region as the best place to work in the UK.

The awards conference, held at the Rowley Mile Racecourse in Newmarket, brought together more than 150 business people from across the Eastern region. It celebrated the award-winning companies and provided the opportunity for the region’s business leaders to learn from one another about creating engaging, inspiring and inclusive workplaces which bring out the best in their people.

We would like to congratulate all our winners and accredited organisations. The full list really demonstrates the breadth of amazing organisations we have in our region and this external recognition will help them to further enhance their employer brand. In today’s competitive recruitment market they will be in a stronger position to attract and retain the best people so that they can achieve business growth and success.

As well as being a real celebration, the event was also a fantastic opportunity for the region’s businesses to learn from one another. Ultimately that’s what Best Employers Eastern Region is all about. There were so much experience and diversity in the room and I’d like to thank all of our guest speakers for taking the time to share their employee engagement journeys. It was also incredibly encouraging to see how many people contributed to the Q&A sessions with both our guest speakers and award winners.
