Take part in the US Best Places To Work Awards and receive free job postings

The deadline is in just a few short weeks

All participants to the US Best Places To Work Awards will receive five free job postings to our new Jobs Board.

The new-look board is due to go live at the start of the summer. We will contact participants ahead of launch with their credits.

To take part in the US Best Places To Work Awards, you must enter through here. The deadline for entries is the end of the month (Friday, May 28th).

These employer awards have been running in the UK for four years and it's all about making the games industry a better place to work. They feature a robust judging process that involves surveying staff. As a result, it can take several weeks to complete, so anyone interested in taking part, let us know now through here today.

The US awards are completely free to take part in, and we'll even share your average employee scores with you for no cost (we will also sell more enhanced reports). We only reveal the winners of these awards, participants who do not score a high enough number are not announced.

The awards are judged by an employer form (25% of the judging) and an employee survey (75%). The employee survey is anonymous. Again, can request the forms through here.

Alongside the Best Places badge, we also have a number of special trophies for excellence in Diversity, Learning & Development, CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), Health & Wellbeing, Crisis Management and US Best Boss. We will reveal the winners of these on the day of the awards on July 8th.

For more details about the show, check out our Best Places To Work Awards website. For anyone interested in sponsoring the event, contact

Best Places To Work Awards UK campaign will kick off in June, with our Canada version set to start in August.

The UK awards have seen participation from some of the biggest companies in games, with past winners including Creative Assembly, Criterion, Sega Hardlight, Rare, Playground Games, Studio Gobo, Sumo Digital and more. You can check out last year's winners here.
