TERMS & CONDITIONS
By entering the awards, you are agreeing to our terms & conditions. Please click here to view the full terms & conditions.
It’s mandatory for shortlisted companies to have at least one representative at the awards ceremony to collect their award should they win. Therefore, every shortlisted entry has a single seat at the Awards Dinner. Entrants reaching the provisional shortlist will be contacted prior to the public announcement of the full shortlist to pay for your reserved seat and discuss optional table bookings and promotional opportunities. The shortlist will not include entrants who have not secured their seat as once the shortlist is announced publicly, tables sell fast. Therefore, to ensure the full shortlist can attend we have put this measure in place.

Taking pace during the day of The Rewards, the Reward & Payroll Summit focuses on the key trends and challenges across the pay and reward landscape, including the effects Covid-19 has had on both employers and employees.
You will have the opportunity to hear from key speakers working within reward. They will share their experiences over the last year - how they, their teams and companies have adapted for the future.
Topics covered will include financial wellbeing, employee engagement, taboo subjects such as menopause and fertility policies and impending legislation that was halted or suspended as a result of the virus. We will also look at the changing approach to flexible working and why employee communication is important now more than ever.
