2024 marks the 9th annual Business Culture Awards, celebrating organisations across diverse sectors for work which enables better working lives. Each has different areas of focus depending on their ambition and strategy, including future workplace readiness; creating sustainable mindset and behaviour shifts; leading with purpose; building workforce resilience and ability to change and refocussing DEI, wellbeing and employee listening strategies. More than ever, companies need to prioritise their culture to retain the best people.

Benefits of recognition for business culture

The Business Culture Awards gives forward-thinking organisations a way to celebrate work which sets their employees up to succeed; recognising how employee experience is fundamental to business performance. By strengthening your culture and sharing the outcomes you are:

• Creating a sustainable competitive advantage that is much harder to imitate than your products or services.
• Focusing on your employee engagement, one of your leading metrics of organisational performance.
• Applying an effective channel to promote, within and outside of your sector, how your company values its unique culture and its people.
• Gaining access to the powerful Business Culture network and community, which comprises leading practitioners and thinkers in HR and business.
• Demonstrating value to your investors or stakeholders by aligning a stand-out customer brand to an exceptional employer brand.

"You can buy a man's time, you can buy a man's physical presence at a given place; you can even buy a measured number of skilled muscular motions per hour or day. But you cannot buy enthusiasm; you cannot buy initiative; you cannot buy loyalty; you cannot buy the devotion of hearts, minds and souls. You have to earn these things.Clarence Francis, Chairman General Foods
