2024 Inspiring Workplaces Winners Announced in Europe

2024 Inspiring Workplaces Winners Announced in Europe
  • The Top 25 Inspiring Workplaces include Colliers, Mastercard, Concentrix, Swift and N-iX 
  • World’s #1 Non-Survey based Awards Recognising PeopleFirst Organisations 
  • Announced at an exclusive Gala Dinner at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London 

London – May 17, 2024 – Last night Inspiring Workplaces Group (IW) announced their first dedicated 2024 Top 25 Inspiring Workplaces winners in Europe – recognising truly PeopleFirst organisations. Winners in the UK & Ireland, were also recognised last night.  

To ensure that the best-performing organisations were identified, Inspiring Workplaces upgraded the judging criteria for the 2024 Awards. Unlike other awards which rely on completing a survey, entrants to the Inspiring Workplace Awards were asked to provide proof of their investment in people by completing the entry form consisting of the six key elements IW believes are fundamental to creating a PeopleFirst culture, and by extension an Inspiring Workplace. They are: 

  • Culture and Purpose 
  • Leadership 
  • Wellbeing 
  • Inclusion  
  • Employee Voice 
  • Employee Experience. 

The changes to the entry criteria surfaced the incredible efforts some organisations are making to create a PeopleFirst culture. The quality of submissions this year has truly elevated the standard, marking it as the strongest ever witnessed. This reflects a significant commitment from business leaders to prioritise their people and reap the well-deserved rewards. Furthermore, it demonstrates the tangible, positive change occurring in workplaces worldwide that we have seen in entries to the Awards in other regions. 

Each of the six key elements were also judged separately for special recognition in each discipline.  

Organisations of all sizes and industries entered a category defined by how many people are within the business. The Top 25 winners were decided by an independent expert judging panel.  

Matt Manners, Founder, The Inspiring Workplaces Group, commented: Congratulations to the Top 25 Inspiring Workplaces across Europe! As the world seems to be facing more widespread and serious challenges, it is more vital than ever for organisations (big and small) to put their people first. Fostering environments and cultures their people both believe in and want to belong to.   

“Focusing on the personal development and caring for the people you employ will not only drive performance but protect the wellbeing of those individuals. Doing so companywide will lead to higher performing teams and enable your organisation to outstrip the competition. Being PeopleFirst isn’t a nice to have, it’s a business imperative! 

“Inspiring Workplaces is about to celebrate its 10th anniversary and we can’t be prouder to place these organisations in a gold standard for PeopleFirst culture. We would also like to thank and congratulate all our finalists this year, a tremendous success!’
