Business Culture Awards 2021: showcase your commitment to a great culture
The benefits of a positive and productive workplace culture have come to the fore even more strongly during the last 12 months, so The People Space is delighted to be continuing our long relationship with the Business Culture Awards as media partner for 2021.
This year entries open on 15 March and there are four new categories: Best digital transformation initiative, Leading with purpose for business culture, Best internal communications strategy for business culture and Best employee voice initiative for business culture.
“The agility companies have shown in the past 12 months has been nothing short of amazing. They have shown great resilience and have rapidly adopted new technologies for customers and employees,” says Business Culture Awards head of marketing Cath Longfield.
“Putting a purposeful culture and authentic communication at the heart of the rapid change they have been dealing with has engendered employee trust, and this is going to be all the more important as working practices change.
“Whether people are working from home, in a blended environment or in the office, the world of work has opened up to more diverse talent. But, with different ways of working companies need to ensure they are flexible, equitable and inclusive – and that everyone feels they are on a level playing field and truly part of the organisation’s culture. At the Business Culture Awards we showcase and celebrate those organisations that demonstrate an exceptional business culture which sets their employees up to succeed.”
Siân Harrington, co-founder and editorial director of The People Space, adds: “The pandemic has highlighted the role of culture. Organisations have been able to move to new practices, such as remote working, while keeping employees engaged, enabling team collaboration and – in some cases – even improving productivity thanks to a consistent and strong set of values.
“As we emerge from the pandemic crisis, culture will take centre stage in helping organisations attract and retain the best talent as they build the new workplace. For this reason we are thrilled to be supporting the Business Culture Awards for the sixth year running.”

● Leading with purpose and values
