Building on the success of the past two years, Computer Weekly is launching the third Best Places to Work in IT Awards. This is set to be the most extensive assessment of IT departments in the UK, with equal opportunities for large and small companies to benefit.
The aim of the awards is to identify and highlight employment best practice by asking how departments create a positive working environment, what opportunities exist for IT staff for continued professional development, and how departments promote a healthy work/life balance.
Anyone who considers that their IT department deserves to be recognised as a best place to work can make a nomination.
The awards are split across 11 categories covering all types of IT users and service providers. A new section has been introduced this year: "IT Services Including Outsourcing Providers" so there is a category to suit all.
To enter your department for the awards simply click on the link at Computerweekly.com and fill in a nomination form. We will then send the IT manager of your elected department an entry form to complete and return. More information may be requested later in the year as part of the judging process.
The entries will be judged by 30 senior industry figures from the UK's major professional IT organisations. A shortlist will then be drawn up and profiled in Computer Weekly from January 2006, with winners announced at the Park Lane Hotel, London on 1 March.
The deadline for nominations is Friday 7 October 2005
