The awards recognise those consultancies and in-house comms departments that go the extra mile to offer a superb working environment and progressive practices in the workplace, whether it's around training, mentoring, pay, maternity and paternity issues, or a host of other areas.
There are three consultancy categories to enter - small (two to 29 employees), medium (30 to 99 employees) and large (100+ employees) – and a fourth category for in-house (corporate teams).
Face-to-face judging sessions for the finalists will take place in central London to decide who gets gold, silver and bronze in each category. These will take place on the afternoons of Tuesday 2 February (large and medium consultancy categories) and Wednesday 3 February (small consultancy and in-house).
To enter, the online questionnaire must be filled out by Monday 4 January 2016.
A drinks reception announcing the winners will be held in late February, following which the results will be published online and in the March issue.
