Don't miss out: final call for the UK's best IT workplaces

Enter the Computer Weekly Best Places to Work in IT Awards 2007

Bill Goodwin

Calling all IT professionals! This is your last chance to enter your IT department into Computer Weekly's Best Places to Work in IT Awards.

The deadline for entry is this Friday, 3 November, so if you want your firm in the running, you need to get thinking, get online and get your entry in as soon as possible.

Now in their fourth year, the awards have become established as the leading showcase for the UK's best IT departments.

The aim of the awards is to identify and encourage best practice, including creating a positive working environment, providing opportunities for continued professional development and promoting a healthy work/life balance.

Evidence shows that workplaces with these attributes cultivate people who are enthusiastic, pay attention to quality and go the extra mile to ensure excellence in the services their organisations provide.

Being a good place to work in IT makes sound business sense. Firms that look after their staff not only attract the best IT professionals but, importantly in an increasingly competitive jobs market, hang on to them.

The Best Places to Work in IT Awards have shown that there is no one factor that makes an IT department a success. Winners in the past have paid attention to a wide range of issues, from flexible working, to training and benchmarking with other IT departments.

The competition is open to anyone who considers that their IT department meets these criteria. The experience of previous awards shows that size is no barrier, with both large and small firms being recognised. Entry is via a simple online form.

The awards will be presented on 2 March 2007 at a gala lunch at the Grosvenor Square Hotel in London.
