The original entry deadline was this morning (Monday).
The Best Places to Work Awards recognise the consultancies and in-house teams that offer progressive practices and an exceptional working environment – perhaps thanks to good training and development, excellent rewards or a host of other issues including parental leave and flexibility.
Shortlisted entrants will be asked to appear in front of the judging panel, who will ask questions about their entry. This will take place in central London on the afternoon of Tuesday 2 February (large and medium agency categories) and Wednesday 3 February (small agency and in-house categories).
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 of PRWeek.
Entrants need to pay a £50 fee, after which a password and a link to an online questionnaire will be sent in order for you to submit information about why you should win. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange payment, using the subject line 'Best Places to Work'.
The four categories, and last year's winners, are:
• Small agency (two to 29 employees): Gold – Dynamo; Silver - Man Bites Dog; Bronze - Manifest
• Medium agency (30 to 99 employees): Gold – Forster; Silver – Citypress; Bronze – W
• Large agency (100+ employees): Gold – Lansons; Silver – Golin; Bronze - Instinctif
• In-house: Gold – Nationwide; Silver – SwiftKey
