Tonight’s the night at the 2017 UK & European Employee Engagement Awards

We were delighted to discover last year that we were finalists for the 2017 UK & European Employee Engagement Awards in the ‘Employee Engagement Vendor of the Year Award’ along with 8 others – Peakon, LifeWorks, Meetoo, Open Blend Method, CultureNet, Totem, Engage Solutions Group and Benefix.

And now the big day has arrived.

So fingers and toes crossed. Scarfs and rattles will definitely be at the ready! And we have a table of cheerleaders as CEO Michael and Founding Director Liz will be joined by Claire Barraclough and Louisa Mellor of DS Smith, Paul Corke of MBNA, Ian O’Doherty of Park Group, Anna Lees of Kings College London, Katie Franklin Thorpe of Rocket Entertainment, Howard Mann of Alderbrooke and Jane Malone of DOC.

It should be quite a night!

The awards show is the first and only global dedicated Employee Engagement Awards aiming to inspire and educate people to change how their organisations think about and engage with their people to achieve their goals.

This annual event provides a platform to recognise excellence in engagement that inspires action and drives the industry and progresses the employee experience agenda.
