The application process for the Top Creative Companies Awards 2024 is thorough in order to properly assess impact. The company is to fill out two short surveys – one by the employer and the other by employees, and the number of employees required to answer is determined by the company’s size. Employ 1-25 people? All members of the team producing creative work must complete the survey. 26-49 employees? 90% of all team members producing creative work. 50-99? 80% of team, and so on. After the survey is completed and submitted by the employer, employees have 10 days to complete their survey. Team members and leaders can read more extensively about the process here.

If You Could has expertise across a wide scope of the industries, and it will also be providing industry reports for creative companies to complement the awards. It will cover creative industry benchmarks and an evaluation framework for your organisation. The Creative Industry Benchmarks report includes: standardised benchmarking across policies and practices, information specifically for creative companies on areas such as working hours, holiday, parental leave, compensation and more. When it comes to the Individual Evaluation Framework report, it will feature individual feedback from your employees and detail of you compare to other companies. Reports will be released shortly after the winner is announced in May. You can purchase the Individual Evaluation Framework report, Creative Industry Benchmarks report, or both. The reports are independent from the winner and all teams can purchase ahead of their application.
