A shortlist of the individuals, teams and organisations vying for a trophy at this year’s Construction News Workforce Awards has been revealed.
Formerly known as the CN Talent Awards, the categories and criteria for the 2022 edition have been revamped to recognise the outstanding achievements of those making the construction industry and its organisations a great place to work.
Across 18 categories, the awards seek to shine a light on the brightest talent in workforce planning and recognise those making a difference in recruitment, staff retention, wellbeing and inclusion.
The titles up for grabs at the ceremony, to be held on Tuesday, 8 November, include Apprentice of the Year, for which NG Bailey boasts three potential winners, while Taylor Woodrow and Galldris Group are fielding two apiece.
Farrans Construction, Jarvis Contracting, Kier Group and Readie Construction make up the nominees for the Best Place to Work (Contractor) Award.
Meanwhile, projects at a string of top firms, including Sir Robert McAlpine and Willmott Dixon, are contending for the CSR Initiative of the Year gong.
A group of more than 30 judges from across the industry helped to select the nominees, and more than 400 attendees are expected on the night of the presentations.
The awards ceremony will take place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in central London.
