Winners, including Samsung, Arriva and Perform, clearly demonstrated a committed and thoughtful approach to employee engagement. Judges looked for initiatives which were brought to life creatively and communicated in line with each business’s values.
Olivia Parrish, Chief Judge and Group Head of HR, Haines Watts, commented: “Employee engagement has only become part of corporate lexicon in recent years, but businesses are quickly accepting its value as a retention tool, an aid to productivity and ultimately, a key factor in business development and growth. We’re really keen to ensure that those businesses which take the time to better understand and connect with their employees are recognised, and the Engagement Excellence Awards do just that.”
