The GamesIndustry.biz Best Places To Work Awards will debut in Canada this November.
In partnership with Montreal International Games Summit, the awards will highlight employer excellence in Canada. The inaugural award winners will be revealed during a presentation at MIGS in November.
To take part, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an employer form and the employee questionnaire. The awards are judged via these two surveys, with 75% of the score based on employee responses.
None of the data obtained via these surveys are kept beyond the judging and it is not shared publicly. Meanwhile, even those who do not make the final winners list are eligible to receive their overall company scores to hopefully identify areas to improve. Entry to the awards is free of charge and the deadline for all completed surveys is October 12th.
It follows the success of the UK Best Places To Work Awards, which launched last year and returns in October.
"MIGS is very proud to host the Best Places to Work Awards," says Arnaud Pradel, communications and marketing manager at MIGS organiser Connection Events. "Working in a place that develops your creativity, your passion and your motivation is one of the key ingredients to make the most amazing games that will become future hits played by thousands of players around the world. All employers should focus on this topic to give their employees exciting places to work in without stress."
