Why participate?


We all care about what kind of workplace we work in and what kind of impression people on the outside have of it. It’s great when your workplace gets publicity like this!


Workplaces are constantly competing for good employees, and their public image is one of key factors in their success. For an employer, there’s no better endorsement than your own employees wanting to highlight how great their workplace is!
