Welcome to the Employee Engagement Awards

Watch a quick roundup of what we have been up to for the past 3 years

About the summit

It gives us great pleasure to announce the fourth UK Employee Engagement Awards Conference.

This is the only event in Europe that brings together award winning & shortlisted entries all in one room. You will be able to learn from best-in-class engagement programmes across a wide range of companies and sectors and understand what pitfalls to avoid along the way. Whilst hearing from world-class thought leaders and the ability to network with industry colleagues.

Tickets & value from the day

We will have 20 speakers/presenters organised across a powerful day to maximise the value you receive for the time out of the office. As mentioned, no other event can offer the mix of award winning campaigns that we can.

We are also keeping each speaker to a short and sharp 20 minutes to present powerful case studies and presentations so that you extract the maximum value from the day.
