There’s still time for your organisation to enter the UK’s first ever Employee Engagement Awards and do your bit for charity at the same time.

Employee engagement has been increasingly appearing in awards in recent years and now there’s a dedicated set to recognise excellence. I’ve included lots of links at the end of this article to point you towards further reading on employee engagement if this is a new topic for you.

judgesWith 16 awards up for grabs, ranging from the best Employee Engagement Company to Innovative Technology, there’s lots of categories to choose from.

I like the fact there are awards for companies of all sizes and in both the public and private sector.
