The Limerick Chamber Regional Business Awards will award The Best employer Business: Employee Talent Development & Workplace Wellness of the Year award to an organisation, trading for more than 2 years in the Mid-West Region, that is striving to create a world class environment for its employees, setting the highest standards in talent development and personal wellness. This award recognizes the organisation that has excelled in this area demonstrating enterprise-wide success as a result of embedded and consistent employee talent development and tailored wellness support.

Organisations need to actively promote their strengths, and demonstrate why they should be considered a preferred employer to work for.
