There is just one week left to register to enter the Workplace Savings and Benefits Awards 2018.
The WSB Awards recognise both employer and provider excellence.
The awards - which are now in their 6th year - aim to find and recognise the employers which have the best benefits teams and offerings to staff and have done the most to improve these over the past 12 months.
In addition, the awards look to reward the best pension and benefit providers - recognising those that have done the most to help employers and their staff over the past year.
The awards ceremony will take place on Thursday 6th September 2018 at the Sheraton Grand, Park Lane, London. To book your table contact Will Bolton via [email protected] or on 020 7484 9796.
