Awards and accreditation

Best Employers Eastern Region is about showcasing the many exceptional employers in our region – and the awards give us the perfect opportunity to do this.

The Awards

After the survey closes, organisations are automatically entered into the awards process. The winners are selected based on the survey feedback from their own employees. This brings a little science to what might seem a subjective judgement. It means staff have effectively voted for their organisation to win by sharing their experiences of what it is really like to work there.

The Best Employers Eastern Region winners will be presented with their awards at the awards conference on Wednesday, October 3 2018.

Awards include:

  • Best Overall Large Company
  • Best Overall Small Company
  • Best Not-for-Profit
  • Best Professional Services
  • Best Digital and Technology
  • Best Engineering and Manufacturing

New for 2018, the Best Employers portal will also showcase the award-winning organisations.


This year there is also the chance to gain additional accreditation. The awards event, and Best Employers portal, will also celebrate the organisations which have successfully applied and achieved platinum or gold kitemark Best Employer 2018 accreditation, as judged by a panel of advisers alongside the engagement scores from the survey.
