The Employee Engagement Awards today announces its inaugaural #Engagement101 list. The top influencers & experts in the world of Employee Engagement.
The list recognises people from all walks of business: the boardroom, HR, Internal Communications, Finance, Technology and Entrepreneurs. Each one has made a significant contribution to the development of Employee Engagement.
Some inspire action, some educate, some recognise, some have influence via social media. Some rip up the old and create new ways to engage people. But all of the 101 are passionate about Employee Engagement.
We have compiled this list with contributions from all around the globe. The #Engagement101 will be updated every year to take account of changes in the discipline and to recognise the people who have contributed something new.
Matt Manners, founder of The Employee Engagement Awards said “I am passionate about improving the employee experience whilst making businesses perform better.
“We have created this initial list as a starting point. We want to trigger people to go and look at the #Engagement101. We want them to research the 101, to follow them and to emulate them. Hopefully this will also inspire future members of #Engagement101 club.”
Profiling the #Engagement101
Some of the 101 will be speakers at our various conferences around the world – a perfect opportunity to draw inspiration from their thinking and to meet them face to face.
Throughout 2017, we will be adding biographies for each of the #Engagement101 and profiling/interviewing them through our newsletter & blog the Engagement Zone.
Nominate the final 10 now
We’ve launched the #Engagement101 with just 91 Influencers because we know that there will be other people who should be recognised. That’s why we have left 10 spots open. We invite people to send in their nominations now. It could be a colleague, a mentor or a boss. Just complete the form on the website via this link – www.ee-awards.com/engagement101

The Employee Engagement Awards (EE Awards) is the first and only global, dedicated Employee Engagement Awards & conference business. We believe in inspiring and educating people to remake the way organisations think about, and engage, people to achieve their purpose.
That’s why we created, and continue to improve, the Employee Engagement Awards; to provide a platform to recognise excellence in engagement that inspires action and drives the industry and the employee experience forward.
Entering and hopefully winning, The EE Awards will provide you with industry acknowledgement, and an important competitive advantage, to attract the best talent.
