Organised by the Federation of Small Businesses, the category cites: “Recruiting and retaining the best people is one of the most pressing challenges facing any businesses. Forward thinking organisations know that they must strive to be the best employer in Bath and North East Somerset if they are to attract and retain the people they need to maintain their competitive advantage. Training and development, performance evaluation processes and company culture are all priorities for employees and that is what the judges will be looking for.”

Jillian Tempo, Head Judge and MD of Human Resources consultancy ‘Regarding Personnel’ commented: “We were impressed that Dickies promotes good working relationships with staff by making its employment policies clear and accessible in its Staff Handbook. Dickies wisely continues to invest in staff training at a time when many companies are cutting their costs. I’m sure that this investment will enable Dickies to continue to reach high levels of customer service”.
