This award will go to the organisation that demonstrates the most compelling and holistic approach to their strategy for engaging their workforce. The winning business will provide evidence that they’ve utilised multiple opportunities for employees to engage with their company and become more fulfilled in their work. Judges will be looking for varied engagement methods and metrics used to measure their return on investment.
This award is designed for companies to nominate that one person in your company who is your linchpin, the person that ensures employee engagement strategies succeed rather than fail. Who is in the frontline day-to-day. The person that might not be responsible for creating the strategy but without them it would never be rolled out. This is your chance to give that person the recognition they rarely receive or expect to receive.

Candidates must demonstrate a well thought out Internal Communications programme that delivers proven results that have the employees at the heart of the campaign.
One of the best ways to engage staff and keep them engaged year-on-year is to connect them to the company brand, culture and values. This award will recognise the businesses that can demonstrate they have an excellent employer brand strategy, which delivers: proof of measurable benefits to the business, engagement of key stakeholders within the business, impact & understanding of messaging and positioning across workforce etc.
Leadership development expands the capacity of individuals to perform in leadership roles within organizations. Leadership roles are those that facilitate execution of a company’s strategy through building alignment, winning mindshare and growing the capabilities of others. This is a key element of rolling out a successful Employee Engagement strategy. Our judges will be looking for entrants to clearly define how their Leadership programme had a direct and positive impact on Employee Engagement and outputs right across the business.

Judges would like to see evidence of how the organisation has encouraged staff uptake of wellness initiatives.
Reward & recognition are important parts of any business but we want to see companies that are extracting additional value. This award will go to a company that ties their reward & recognition strategy to business objectives and engages employees beyond simple transactional elements such as salary or private medical insurance.
This award recognises an organisation that can clearly demonstrate that it actively executed a strategy that put diversity and inclusion at the heart of its business.

Employees continue to want their work and their company to contribute to more than just profit.

The judges would like to see evidence of the impact the project has had on both the workforce and also the wider social contribution it has made.
As one of the most integral part of a company’s profile, this award focused on how companies and organizations relate to their customers. Candidates must demonstrate new and innovative examples of customer engagement specifically how each organization delivers on customer satisfaction.
This award recognises the use of technology to support and drive employee engagement and will be looking for a people-first approach to using technology effectively rather than a technology-first approach. Entries that can quantify the measurable impact of the technology on employee engagement and how the organisation has gained employee uptake will be looked upon favourably.
This entry must be submitted on behalf of a customer the technology was used for. There is a separate vendor category
