Best Practice Awards

The winners of the 2022 Best Practice Awards will be announced on Tuesday 22nd November

About the Awards

Now in their 22nd year, the IR Society Best Practice Awards offer a truly meaningful opportunity to showcase best practice in investor communications. Each award category covers companies from the largest to the smallest - across the UK, Europe and internationally - in recognition of the diverse range of listed businesses looking to the UK for excellence in IR. The real value of this awards programme is that it allows the IR Society to feed back to the IR community what great looks like in terms of how companies are communicating with their stakeholders. 

Catch up on the launch of the Best Practice Awards 2022 by watching the 26 April launch webinar
