Personnel Today supports Best Places to work in Construction

Personnel Today has teamed up with its sister magazine, Contract Journal, to support the launch of their second annual Best Places to Work in Construction Awards.

Contract Journal Best Places to Work logoThese prestigious and highly successful awards – in association with Hays Construction and CITB-ConstructionSkills – will set out to find the best employer in the construction industry. Entry is open to any company working in or supplying the construction industry.

Contract Journal’s deputy editor James Atkinson said, “Everyone knows that construction is all about people. But if the industry wants to compete with other industries and services it has got to work doubly hard to attract and retain the best people.

“We know that many companies are doing a lot to become better employers and to make the careers of their employees safe, interesting and rewarding.”

The awards give construction companies the perfect opportunity to prove that they are great employers based on the opinions of the people who count – the employees – by measuring  levels of staff satisfaction.

In addition to the prestige, the awards also present companies with a tremendous opportunity to find out what their employees really think about them as an employer. Summaries of the confidential results of Contract Journal’s survey will be supplied to employers on request. And if you enter the awards annually, it gives you a chance to keep track of your efforts to improve staff satisfaction levels.

Says Atkinson: “Winning an award can really boost you company’s status as an attractive place to work. Award winners will be entitled to use the Best Places logo in advertising or in promotional material.”

Applications to be included in the awards must be received by 3 February 2006.
