Making the games industry a better place to work

What is Best Places

The Best Places To Work Awards is the only event to celebrate employer excellence specifically for the video games industry.

The awards event has taken place in London for the UK market for the past four years, and on July 8th, 2021 will be coming to the US with an all-digital event featuring talks and sessions on major HR issues, such as challenges around COVID-19, inclusion and diversity.

Participation in the awards is strictly confidential (we will only reveal the winners), and those that don't make the final cut (and even those that do) can receive their employee scores in order to identify any areas of improvements. The awards are free to take part.
