Making the games industry a better place to work

What is the Best Places To Work Awards

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


2022 marks the awards sixth year in the UK. On July 12th, the event returns in physical form at Develop:Brighton, alongside talks and articles on how to improve the workplace for those working in video games.
