  • Explained

    The Best for Working Conditions category is looking for tourism businesses that create places to work which are supportive, fair and empowering – and looks beyond meeting legal minimum requirements. This category is for organisations for whom the belief and practice of fair wages and decent working conditions are fundamental. These organisations also celebrate the skills of local people, employ local staff and offer training and progression opportunities.

    What the judges want

    Businesses with a demonstrated commitment to, and a clear emphasis on, decent and fair working conditions and with recruitment practices which are either demonstrably based on equality of opportunity or practising positive discrimination. The winner will be able to demonstrate a holistic approach to the welfare and skills development of its staff and a commitment to employing local people and upskilling them. If you have evidence of progression through the company and beyond as employees leave to find promotion beyond your business, please include it.

    Only work conducted during the 18 month period from 1 January 2017 to present will be eligible.
