Skip to main content Best Employers in Hospitality 2014

Established. Respected. Free

We are delighted to announce that the Best Employers in Hospitality Awards will be open for entries from the first week of April 2014.

The Best Employers in Hospitality Awards, now in their fourth successful year, are the only established and recognised employer awards in the hospitality industry and are free to enter.

Respected by hospitality employers and employees as a truly credible mark of a great employer in the industry, the awards have grown each year to involve hundreds of employers and thousands of employees annually. The awards represent great employers from all sectors and are judged only on the views of their employees. Entry is free and simple via an online employee engagement survey and each employer who completes their entry will receive a free engagement report giving details of their employee responses across a range of key engagement areas.

The Best Employers in Hospitality Awards 2014 results include a Top 50 Best Employers in Hospitality ranking and a series of category winners, recognising not just the best employer overall but the best in each sector and in each employer grouping too. This makes these awards genuinely representative of the industry as a whole and acknowledges the full range of best employers within it.

This year we have stepped up the quality even further by partnering with respected employee engagement experts People Insight, who have developed a wonderfully agile, relevant and impactful employee survey for the Best Employers in Hospitality Awards 2014. This new, bespoke survey contains refined questioning which gains deep, detailed insight into your employee engagement levels and at the same time keeps the survey short and simple to complete. A bonus for any employer, especially those with a large number of employees to survey! We are delighted that People Insight’s involvement with the awards has led to a far more accessible and meaningful entry process for employers and employees alike.

People Insight come with great provenance in the sector and count an impressive list of industry employers amongst their clients, including Marston’s Inns & Taverns, Itsu, Firmdale Hotels Group, Virgin Active, Pitcher & Piano and LivingWell Health Clubs.

Tom Debenham, Managing Director of People Insight said of their involvement “We know that the best employers in any sector are the ones that engage their staff, develop their potential, and motivate them to give of their best. Nowhere is this more important than in the hospitality sector, where employee skills, attentiveness and attitude are so central to the customer experience.”

“People Insight are therefore delighted to support the Best Employers in Hospitality 2014, help showcase great hospitality employers in terms of their approach to engaging their people, and provide useful case studies and inspiration for others.”
