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.

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 go to the organisation that provides the most compelling evidence that they have deployed an effective strategy to engage and communicate with the varying different generations within their business. It is recognised now that different age groups within a business have vastly different expectations on how they are managed, rewarded and engaged with at work. One size doesn’t fit all. This award will go to the business to best demonstrates their strategy has succeeded to address this issue.

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.

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.
This award focuses on the efforts and achievements of consultancies that aim to bring employee engagement into the forefront of a business. The consultancies that deliver their expert skills to the benefit of their clients and employees.
