Together, let’s shine a light on the extraordinary people in our industry

Our purpose is simple: to recognise, honour and celebrate the very best of people in retail. Putting People First

After a tough couple of years in the retail industry, we are excited to launch these awards because we see how important it is for people to feel valued and appreciated. People are the heartbeat of a business and we believe that through being valued, are more motivated and better engaged. Happy employees go the extra mile simply because they want to contribute to an organisation that cares about them.  To us, this is something to be proud of, to call out and is the reason we put these awards together.

We want to know which retailers are focussed on creating happy, engaged employees. Let’s call out the businesses that are investing in employee experiences, embracing diversity and celebrating moments. It’s time to showcase the teams and individuals with real grit, energy and passion.
