About the awards

Six years ago, Communicate magazine launched the Employer Brand Management Awards. From the outset, it was recognised as the must-win awards programme for any organisation keen to benchmark its employer brand activity. 

Since it launched, the perceptions and conversations around employer brand have continued to evolve. A strong employer brand is seen as the beating heart of many organisations. The employer brand goes beyond fancy recruitment adverts; it is an intrinsic part of the ethos and ethics or an organisation. If utilised well, it attracts, engages and retains talent. It also, importantly, instigates the employee experience and guides the employee journey.

The Employer Brand Management Awards has remained the only true recognition of the employer brand management process. Metrics such as retention and cost per hire go far, but the Employer Brand Management Awards programme compares and contrasts the different aspects of successful employer branding, rewarding excellence and celebrating the campaigns and the organisations that are excelling in this field.

With 20 categories to choose from plus our ‘best in sector’, it is time to prove that your employer brand stands out amongst your peers and why you are the employer of choice. 

The Employer Brand Management Awards welcome entries from any private sector company, public sector organisation, creative agency or individual who has helped develop or apply a successful employer brand.
