EXCLUSIVE: Entry deadline for Employee Benefits Awards 2023 extended

Employee Benefits Awards 2023EXCLUSIVE: The deadline for the Employee Benefits Awards 2023, sponsored by Aon, has been extended until midnight on Friday 10 February, in order to give HR, reward and benefits professionals another chance to enter and win recognition for their achievements.

Those organisations that have already submitted entries can use this time to consider any additional categories they might want to enter. There is no limitation regarding the number of award categories each employer can put themselves forward for. This is also an opportunity to nominate standout members of staff for individual awards.

The Employee Benefits Awards, now in its 21st year, celebrates organisations, teams and individuals in the reward, benefits and HR community that have made a significant difference through their reward and benefits strategies, attracting, motivating and rewarding employees through benefits strategies during 2022.

This year, 23 categories are available to enter, spanning a variety of aspects of employee benefits, including financial wellbeing, pensions, healthcare, employee engagement and mental health. Entries are open to in-house HR, reward and benefits professionals, teams and departments from any type of organisation operating outside the employee benefits space. Organisations within the benefits market are also able to enter and gain recognition for their own HR strategies, via the Best supplier to work for category.

Three new categories have been introduced for 2023, to reflect the evolution of employee benefits: Best public sector benefits, Best benefits to support reproductive health, and Best benefits to support hybrid working.

Other categories celebrate best practice in healthcare, flexible benefits, benefits to support diversity, equity and inclusion, and benefits communication, as well as the Grand Prix, which recognises the standout entry among the winners. The prize, awarded to the University of Lincoln for two consecutive years, is presented to the organisation that has most impressed judges with its overall achievements.

The winners for 2023 will be announced at the Employee Benefits Awards on Friday 23 June 2023 at the HAC London. This must-attend event for any HR professional will give entrants and industry professionals the opportunity to network and celebrate best practice and innovation.
