Sponsored by Cooper Golding Recruitment, the Business Action ‘Best Employer Award’ seeks to recognise employers based or operating in North Devon who are committed to providing a fulfilling environment in which their employees thrive.

Many of us spend a large proportion of our time at work and working in an environment which is safe, healthy and where we feel happy is very important. The Best Employer Award seeks to recognise employers in North Devon who realise this and who achieve exceptional standards of care for their employees.

The Best Employer Award is open to any business in North Devon which employs people, from one member of staff to hundreds or thousands.



The judges are looking for evidence of one or more of:

  • Open approach to employing a diverse workforce
  • Develops the potential of all employees as individuals
  • Supports professional development with appropriate training
  • Enables employees to achieve work / life balance
  • Rewards employees appropriately for their contribution to the business
  • Takes an active role in nurturing local skills and talent
  • Creates and promotes an enjoyable and positive work environment
  • Supports staff and makes everyone feel a part of the team
  • Open to new ideas and feedback
  • Creates a sense of community within the workplace (organises socials outside of work)  

From a builder employing one apprentice to a manufacturer employing hundreds of production staff, the Best Employer Award seeks to highlight the those employers in North Devon who take best care of their people.

Employers can enter themselves or be nominated by their employees.
