Whitbread's Premier Travel Inn topped the Customer Service Strategy of the Year section for its 100% guarantee, which waives payment if customers don't get the facilities they're promised.

Hilton International took the Marketing Strategy of the Year Award for a campaign that boosted bookings at its 47-strong Hilton Worldwide Resorts division.

The maker of Innocent Drinks was named Employer of the Year, and the Wild Bean Caf‚ in BP Connect petrol stations won the Corporate Venturing Award.
