How does the survey work?

  • Employees will be asked to identify and prioritise what’s important to them at work and then rate you against those criteria
  • They will also answer five ‘killer questions’ about working for your organisation
  • And there’s an opportunity to add their comments, providing you with valuable additional insights
  • All organisations completing an entry will receive a secure link to an online report on their responses, with comparisons against peer averages once the survey has closed
  • An overall score is generated based on your results which enables The Caterer and Korero to identify the Top 30 Best Places to Work in Hospitality and will be announced in late March
  • The top six employers will exclusively be invited to enter the 2024 Best Employer Catey Award
  • The top employers will be asked to provide a written entry based on the 12 key stages of employee experience, as identified by Korero's 'People Plan'. These entries are then carefully considered by the Cateys' judges. Please see for further information
