RG looking for the best local employers

Registration has opened for the RG Top Ten Employers Awards, presented by PwC Bermuda. The deadline to apply is April 12.

The awards scheme acknowledges local organisations that excel in employee engagement, satisfaction and talent retention.

In recognising top employers as voted by their own employees, the awards showcase businesses, positively influence their workforce and sets the bar for the entire community.

“This creates a ripple effect that cultivates a culture of ongoing improvement and investment in people,” according to Michael Grier, commercial director at BP Media.

He said this recognition stands out as one of the most authentic business events of the year.

He added: “With the help of our presenting sponsor PwC Bermuda, and other sponsors Bermuda Human Resource Association, and Global Research, ten inspiring Bermudian employers will be celebrated this autumn.”

At the awards presentation in September there will be a breakfast at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, a multimedia presentation and speeches from a diverse set of partners.

All finalists will be featured in their own exclusive video package with interviews from employees. The Royal Gazette will also produce a 16-page special feature with more background on each finalist.

Finalists will be notified in June with video presentations created in July and August.

PwC Bermuda leader, Arthur Wightman, said that his firm was pleased to continue its sponsorship of the event, celebrating the best places to work in Bermuda.

“The theme of PwC’s annual global chief executive officer survey this year is ‘Thriving in an age of continuous reinvention’,” he said.

“Nearly 45 per cent of chief executive officers globally are not confident that their companies would survive more than a decade on their current path.

“Business leaders globally, and here in Bermuda, recognise they must transform to survive. However, without the support and energy of their people, these efforts will fail.”

Mr Wightman said it is critical to build alignment between leaders and employees around priorities for change, and to build a culture of trust so employees feel safe to propose better ways of doing things.

“We look forward to seeing the results of this year’s awards and hearing how the Top Ten Employers of Bermuda are caring for the wellbeing of their people and empowering them to play an active role in reinvention,” he said.

According to Global Research director Leslie Steede, there are ten pathways to success when engaging in the annual Top Ten survey component of the study.

Global Research prides itself on delivering 100 per cent data-driven and calculated results.

The study involves both employees and management participating in surveys that evaluate satisfaction in diverse areas, including employment benefits, career advancement opportunities, communication, and overall employee contentment.

Krystle DaPonte, president of the BHRA, applauded The Royal Gazette and PwC’s continued dedication to these awards.

“We find inspiration in organisations that actively contribute to advancing diversity, simultaneously fostering the growth and enhancement of their existing teams through professional development and cultural transformations,” Ms DaPonte said.

“I urge more organisations to be deliberate in shaping their diversity strategy and take part in this awards programme, as it offers valuable insights. There is still much work to be done here in Bermuda.”

Ms DaPonte also said: “We are thrilled to kick off this year’s registration process, extending a warm welcome to both new and returning participants in the top ten rankings.

“Every year marks a joyous occasion for local employers and employees. The survey, video production, and, of course, the breakfast, make for a genuinely heartfelt few months.”
