The Employee Engagement Awards

There are companies and there are people companies. Companies powered by their people. People companies are the places that inspire people.

They are the game changing, forward-thinking companies that think and work differently. They are the companies people aspire to work for and work with, the places where people want to do their best work and create successful organizations.

The Employee Engagement Awards & Conference inspires, recognizes and celebrates the people companies who remake the way organizations think about and engage people to achieve their purpose.

The Awards Night

A day of inspiration and action

Hosted in New York City on June 17 2015, the Employee Engagement Awards and Conference brought together business professionals from across the country to inspire and support them in creating a remarkable people-engaged company.

Throughout the day-long conference were shared insights, strategies and tools from inspiring leaders and remarkable peers, helping to realize the power of engaged employees, wherever a business may be in their journey.

The day focused on capturing ideas, tactics and next actions to implement back at the office. Check out the video from last year below:

The Employee Engagement Unsung Hero Award

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.

The Employee Culture Award powered by Culture Lab X

The creation of a company culture is essential but far from easy. It’s more than a vision than the collective can unite behind behind and give purpose to their employment. How has your company created an engaging culture that’s brought staff together, improved their experience and the companies performance as a result?
