Croner works with thousands of UK companies every year, providing the employment and safety information, software and services they need to make decisions with confidence. Over the last few years, during extremely tough economic conditions, we have seen business owners and HR teams really step up to the challenge of attracting, retaining, motivating and managing their staff effectively and efficiently to ensure their company survives and thrives. A committed team of employees that is happy and focused is key to business success. We are proud to sponsor the Employer of the Year award to recognise the success that results from this commitment to sound human resources policies. Our past winners have been inspiring in their innovative approach to employee engagement that results in financial success, and we look forward to learning even more from this year’s entrants.
