Awards Gala | September 2018 | NYC
More and more, our personal and professional lives are converging. As a result, company culture has never been more important for organizations looking to attract and retain the best talent. But for employers, culture is about more than just Bagel Fridays and beer in the office. The strongest cultures are built on values that run deep throughout the organization.
The Digiday WorkLife Awards, presented by Digiday Careers, showcase the media and marketing world’s best work environments as well as the values and cultural initiatives that make them unique. See last year's winners here.

The judges will be looking for companies or campaigns that can clearly demonstrate transparent success over the past 12 months. Our judges are seeking companies or campaigns that have seized challenges and created opportunities.
Judges will require evidence to substantiate all entries and this could include details of financial performance, results in terms of KPI, creative evidence in terms of a sizzle reel, still images, or links to the final project. The judges will also consider the structure, presentation and clarity of each entry.
The Judging Process
Judges will read and pre-score all entry forms, considering any supporting materials submitted. Judges will be asked to give a score for each question within the entry form relating to Digiday's four criteria: innovation, creativity, consumer value, and results. These will be combined to give an overall score for each entry. All judges pre-scores will then be combined and the highest scoring entries will determine the shortlists.
Judges will meet to discuss the highest scoring entries and then agree the winner for each category. The shortlists will be announced July 2018. The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony September 2018.
All material will remain confidential to the judges, who are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Winning case studies may be used in post-event materials to promote best practice and permission will be sought from entrants before publishing these.
