Positive Workplace

People spend over half their waking hours at work.
Are you providing a positive experience for them?

This category is for the business going above and beyond to ensure their employees experience a culture that provides a workplace that supports wellbeing and the environment.

This award will recognise businesses that have made a really positive difference to the working environment and culture for their staff. We want to hear about how the views of staff have been listened to, the ideas explored and the positive changes that have been made that makes your business great to work for.

The Merton Best Business Awards recognise and promotes excellence, innovation and best practice in the borough. We want to see evidence of this through your online application.

We’d love to hear your story – so make sure you ‘paint a picture’ of your business or organisation and include some key performance indicators, facts, figures, case studies and testimonials.

We really want to see your enthusiasm in your application, so make it captivating, remembering to keep within the word limits and to focus your entry on the key points where your arguments are the strongest.

The judges are looking for something that attracts their attention, be bold and demonstrate your passion and don’t be afraid to be visual. Judges welcome relevant photos and marketing materials too.

To be eligible for this award, your business start date must be before 1st January 2017, and employ less than 250 employees. 

If you have any questions, please contact the awards team on 020 8944 5501 or email awards@mertonchamber.co.uk.
