London – April 20, 2022: Today The Inspiring Workplaces Group announced its first ever Top 50 Inspiring Workplaces across EMEA. The order of the Top 50 will be announced at the Gala Dinner held at the Kia Oval in London on May 24, 2022.

In a newly revamped awards programme, the IW Awards asked each organisation that entered to complete the same form – a form that consisted of six key elements:

  • Culture & Purpose
  • Leadership
  • Wellbeing
  • Inclusion
  • Communication
  • Experience

The leaders in each of the elements will be recognised for their achievements on the night.

We will also be announcing the Top 5 organisations across each category based upon business size:

  • Small
  • Medium
  • Large
  • Enterprise
  • Non-Profit

Every organisation within the Top 50 will be awarded a certificate and online assets to promote their achievements and have the opportunity to take away an iconic trophy.

Founder of Inspiring Workplaces, Matt Manners said, “We have been recognising organisations and the inspirational people within them for over eight years now. This year, we wanted to evolve the awards to represent the way the world of work is evolving too. Congratulations to all the finalists. We can’t wait to share these stories and promote the inspirational work they are doing day-in-day-out.”
