Honouring HR’s commitment to workplace transformation
The most progressive companies place emphasis on every aspect of the employee lifecycle, from onboarding to retirement. This includes understanding their employees’ daily journeys at the firm, how to improve their productivity, or the influence technology has on the entire experience.
As we move to rebuilding the global economy and adapting to new ways of working, employee experience (EX) has come to the forefront of every organisation’s agenda. To support you in raising the bar for EX, we are thrilled to bring to you a brand-new initiative in 2021! Following the resounding success of our renowned HR Excellence Awards, the Employee Experience Awards is a distinguished platform that will reward top-notch HR teams and individuals with business stories that inspire, educate and move the dial on EX.
Our key focus for this new award is deeply rooted in the three pillars that are cornerstones for a positive EX: leadership, learning and employee engagement. The categories will celebrate stellar achievements that have successfully anchored the three elements and delivered workplace milestones. It’s about time that we honour your unrivalled commitment to workplace transformation.
Follow us on social media as the awards develop.
