The Business Culture Awards 2017


The Business Culture Awards gives forward-thinking organisations a way to celebrate work which sets up their employees to succeed – recognising how their people’s employment experience is fundamental to business performance. Many organisations have created and implemented specific projects which have a positive impact on aspects of their culture – increasing purpose, pride, collaboration or learning by example. Business Culture is one of the top drivers for the best talent. Business Culture is the differentiator in how organisations deliver a service or products to their customers.
