The 2017 Employee Engagement Awards are officially open for entries in the UK and across Europe.
I’ve been invited to judge the awards and am excited to see first-hand the hard work that has been happening inside organisations.
The closing date for entries is 6 October 2017, so if you’re interested in entering, do get your skates on.
Matt Manners of The EE Awards told me: “We are the first and only global awards company (in four continents) solely focused on recognising Employee Engagement. This provides people with a competitive advantage for recruiting and retaining the best talent in your industry whilst, most importantly, highlighting the great work you and your team do day-in-day-out.”
See the EE Awards website to find out more information and how to apply. There’s a wide range of categories ranging from Company Size & Sector, Wellbeing, Employer Brand, Culture, Diversity & inclusion, Internal Comms, Reward & Recognition and much more.
Work submitted must have taken place between January 2014 and September 2017. Organisations entering must be based in Europe and the shortlisted entrants will be announced in November 2017.
Matt adds: “This year we have created an entry pack to help you more than ever before. We have also endeavoured to improve our entry process, making it easier than ever to submit.
“We have a new online system where you can register and create a draft of your entry and return multiple times to edit at your convenience. You can register here.”
The Employee Engagement Awards winners will be announced at a black tie Awards Gala Dinner at Wembley Stadium on 25 January 2018. The evening will include a Champagne Reception, three-course dinner with wine, the Awards presentation and live band entertainment.
Matt adds: “The Employee Engagement Awards are your chance to come together as a community to network, learn and celebrate with each other. This high-profile event offers you the perfect place to meet hundreds of industry leaders and discuss how the last 12 months have affected you.”
Do take a look at the website and see if there’s a category for you. Remember, entries have to be in by 6 October 2017.
