RG Business Top Ten Employers Awards to return
The RG Business Top Ten Employers is returning after last year’s event had to be cancelled due to the unprecedented disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The resilience of the Bermuda community will be recognised in the 2021 Awards, which also mark the 10-year anniversary of PwC’s sponsorship.
There has been an increase in participation year after year in the distinctive awards programme, allowing more organisations to take advantage of the complimentary exercise that helps them to gauge employee satisfaction.
Arthur Wightman, PwC Bermuda leader, said: "PwC is pleased to mark the 10th year of our support for the Top Ten Employers Awards. The event is an important annual recognition and celebration of the best places to work in Bermuda. Winners have included small and large organisations from a cross section of industries, and both the private and public sector. But all share a common thread – an exceptional commitment to their employees.
"In the last 10 years, tremendous forces have reshaped the workplace – none more so than Covid-19. The rapid shift to remote work presents new organisational, talent, human capital, and technology challenges. Managing a virtual workforce means organisations need to redefine the way work gets done and create innovative talent ecosystems that build engaged, enabled and agile workforces. We look forward to seeing who is getting this right, when the Top Ten Employers of 2021 are announced later this year."
The results from the RG Business Top Ten Awards are 100 per cent data-based and calculated by Global Research, Bermuda’s leading agency in market research. Global Research’s director Leslie Steede, said: “Both employees and management complete surveys that assess employment satisfaction across various areas such as employment benefits, career growth opportunities, communication and overall employee satisfaction.”
Although the foundation of the survey will remain the same, the Bermuda Human Resource Association will join the team of partners for the awards programme for the second time. Krystle DaPonte, president of the BHRA, said “As we are reflecting on the continued commitment PwC has made to these annual awards, we have asked ourselves the question: which companies have shared the same type of commitment to their employees?
“We are curious to know what companies are currently doing to retain their talent and how they are showing a commitment to them and their overall professional growth. ”
She added: “We are pleased to add the ‘BHRA Employer Commitment Awards’ to the agenda and are excited to identify organisations that go above and beyond for their employees.”
The RG Business Top Ten Awards are now open to entries and encourage companies of all industries to participate.
Michael Grier, commercial director of RG Business, said: “There is no cost to participate, and the results can be extremely valuable to organisations. We have seen previous winners experience more success attracting and retaining talent and those who didn’t make the Top Ten come back later after internal audits and find themselves achieving higher scores. It’s also a great opportunity for companies to pause, and look at how they measure up and compete for the best talent when it comes to best practices in human resources.”
Participation in the Top Ten closes on Friday, March 26. Companies must have a minimum of 20 employees to enter and can register at http://rgmags.com/rg-business-top-ten/. Inquires can be made to email@example.com or by calling 278-0105.
