GamesIndustry.biz Best Places To Work Awards 2019 UK finalists revealed

Full list of winners to be revealed on September 20th

The finalists for the UK GamesIndustry.biz Best Places To Work Awards have been decided.

The list of 'Best Places' will be revealed on September 20th at a ceremony in London, but we will also have a series of special categories for excellence in health and wellbeing, diversity, supporting education and working with charities and the wider business (CSR).

We will also crown the UK's Best Boss. Meanwhile, G Into Gaming will hand out its special award for an inspirational woman in video games.

The awards are judged via an extensive survey sent to the employees of all participating companies. These are the Best Places as judged by the UK games industry workforce.

This year the event is presented by recruitment specialist Amiqus, with partners Playground Games, Creative Assembly, UKIE and Special Effect.

Prior to the awards, we will host a series of talks and panels on inclusivity, corporate social responsibility and mental health. The whole event is free to attend for Best Places winners and finalists. If you're interested in attending, a very limited number of tickets are available to purchase here.
