Employee Experience Awards Key Dates

Celebrating excellence in EX leadership

After a resoundingly successful launch, the Employee Experience Awards returns for its second year to honour organisations that have excelled at focusing on employee experience to help retain and excite the best people, creating value and maintaining a competitive edge as they do so.

Since the start of the pandemic, employees have been grappling with the disruption to work – and the nature of work – which in turn has brought unprecedented levels of uncertainty, instability, and stress to their lives. At the same time, research has shown that a positive employee experience can yield 16 times the engagement of those reporting a negative experience, and 8 times the desire to want to stay with their company.

A win at the Employee Experience Awards is an important acknowledgement from the industry that your organisation is taking a lead in listening to, engaging and supporting your most valuable asset: its people.

With 30 enterable categories this year, the awards focus on three EX pillars: leadership, learning and employee engagement. The categories will celebrate stellar achievements that have successfully anchored the three elements and delivered workplace milestones.

Best of luck! Follow us on social media as the awards develop.
