Yorkshire Business of the Year Awards: seeking great employers

Award winners at the Yorkshire Business Masters 2022

How a business attracts, retains, and engages with its workforce is crucial to how a company performs long term.

From flexible working to paid parental leave to even simple perks such as bringing your dog to work, free meals, and volunteering days, can help create an environment where employees want to work and develop.

Good engagement can lead to attracting and inspiring great people at all levels.

Our Yorkshire Business of the Year Awards aims to recognise those companies that show they care about their employee experience.

The Employer of the Year award, sponsored by Verlingue, recognises the private or public sector organisation that excels for its workforce. This can be demonstrated through investment in skills and training, innovations around flexible working, workplace wellbeing initiatives, support for groups and individuals.

Last year’s winners, The Data Shed, maintained clear, formal values through growth, with strong development and wellbeing support. Shortlisted companies were Banwait Group Holdings, FDS Director Services, Harworth Group and Premier Modular.
