  3. 3. OUR HISTORY We are the first and only global dedicated Employee Engagement Awards & Conference Company, established in 2014, now on four continents. We believe in inspiring people to remake the way organisations think about, and engage, people to achieve their purpose. The global learning platform we created and continue to develop, champions best practice in engagement to inspire action, improving and driving the employee experience forward. We publish unique content and have created a growing global community of EE professionals to enable learning and collaboration. Two new regions will be added in 2018. In the space of under 3 years we have established our awards and conferences in 4 continents with plans to include 2 additional ones in 2018. 3
  4. 4. ABOUT US 2017 sees the inauguration of the Africa chapter of the global Employee Engagement Awards and Conferences. The all Africa Employment Engagement Awards and Conferences provides opportunities for practitioners to champion their achievements on a global platform and benchmark best practice. Employee engagement is all about people connecting their personal purpose with the purpose of their employer in a such way that the individual can thrive through peak performance and the company can flourish in economic and societal ways. The Africa EE Awards brings a new dimension to the global EE awards – with a focus on innovation in the workplace and an imperative to nurture and grow talent on the continent. Our conferences also provide a learning platform which can inspire new ideas and action to drive the employee experience to new heights, resulting in more engaged teams, striving to make a difference. The impact of excellence in employee engagement means staff, customers and the communities we reach, become valued stakeholders in building successful organisations. 4 JOHANNESBURG 2018 LAGOS 2019

  6. 6. TOP TIPS Locate the video, visual or voice material to bring your case story to life; it takes 30-40 minutes to upload your case study once you’ve gathered the raw material from reports, newsletters or staff testimonials. BE A COMPELLING STORYTELLER Make sure you tell the story. Be clear and concise. Remember our judges don’t know you, your business or your project and you only have 1,500 words to not only explain to but wow them. BUSINESS CASE – TANGIBLE RESULTS Indicate how the project links to Employee Engagement for the betterment of the business. Set out what the goals of the campaign were and ensure that you provide credible proof that you delivered, or even surpassed those goals. A clear ROI will always be seen in a positive light by our judges. AVOID JARGON Plain English enables judges to clearly understand all sections of the entry, with no confusion or misunderstanding. BRING IT TO LIFE Do you have any materials that can bring the entry to life? Make it more real & human? Videos; images; leaflets; websites & testimonials can all be uploaded. READ MORE HERE 6

  10. 10. AWARD CATEGORIES Employee Engagement Company of the Year Award: Major Corporate 500 employees + Reward, Recognition & Wellbeing Award Diversity & Inclusion Award This award follows the same criteria as The Employee Engagement Company of the Year Award but focuses on those companies with under 500 employees and reflects the budgets they may have to work with. The winner of the SME Company of the Year will have triumphed over pressures with budgets or resources to truly create a culture of employee engagement plus show ROI. This award will go to the organisation that demonstrates the most compelling and holistic approach to their strategy for engaging their workforce. The winning business will provide evidence that they’ve utilised multiple opportunities for employees to engage with their company and become more fulfilled in their work. Judges will be looking for varied engagement methods and metrics used to measure their return on investment. Reward, Recognition and Wellbeing are important parts of any business but we want to see companies that are extracting additional value for both the business and employees. The winning company will tie their business strategy to their reward, recognition and wellbeing objectives and engages employees beyond transactional elements such as salary or health benefits delivered through the HR function. An emphasis on Wellbeing would put the finalists ahead of the game. This award recognises an organisation that can clearly demonstrate that it actively executed a strategy that put diversity and inclusion at the heart of its business. It may focus on one particular group but preferably the winning entry will indicate how the principles of inclusion are being implemented and provided clear support and inclusion for all: this will include women, people from disadvantaged backgrounds, people from historically marginalised communities, and people with disabilities. 10 Employee Engagement Company of the Year: Small-Medium Corporate (under 500 employees)
  11. 11. AWARD CATEGORIES Social Responsibility Award Customer Engagement Award Internal Communications / Employer Brand Award: Small-Medium and Major Corporate Employee Engagement Public Sector Organisation/Company of the Year Award Employees continue to want their work and their company to contribute to more than just profit. This award will recognise a project dedicated to engaging employees through a social responsibility initiative or programme. The judges would like to see evidence of the impact the project has had on both the workforce and also the wider social contribution it has made. As one of the most integral parts of managing a company’s reputation, this award focuses on how companies and organizations relate to their customers. Candidates must demonstrate new and innovative examples of customer engagement and specifically how the organization delivers on customer satisfaction. Noted by many engagement consultancy services as the biggest issue of concern for disengaged employees, this award will be presented to the company or organization who has gone to considerable lengths to improve internal communications. Candidates must demonstrate a well thought out Internal Comms/Brand Values programme that delivers proven results indicating employees are at the heart of the campaign. This award will be presented to a public sector organisation that has undertaken a project which has driven employee engagement to a new level. All projects, whether around wellness, internal communications, technology or reward, can be entered. Judges would like to see information around the full project lifecycle including planning, implementation, measurement and reflective learning. The winning organisation will have shown how engagement led to improved performance of goals. 11
  12. 12. AWARD CATEGORIES Employee Engagement Non- Profit Company of the Year Award The Frontline Employee Empowerment Award This award will be presented to a not-for-profit organisation which has a current or recent project to drive forward employee engagement in the organisation. All projects, whether around wellbeing, internal communications, technology or reward, can be entered. Judges would like to see information around the full project lifecycle including planning, implementation, measurement and reflective learning. Our special Award for outstanding EE work is a ground-breaking category, designed for Africa, which highlights a project led by staff to address an issue they identified themselves. Finalists will be able to demonstrate an employee-led initiative which changed how the company approached engagement – either with staff or customers – leading to improved service, benefits or products being adopted within the company. Entries are open to teams or individual employees to submit their stories. Multiple entries from teams in one company are permitted. 12 Employee Engagement Sustainable Futures Award Employee Engagement Learnerships and Skills Development Award Employees, customers and the public at large are increasingly looking to see how business is addressing the use of resources to avoid waste, promote energy efficiency and create environments which are contributing to sustainability in physical form. On the continent we face particular challenges which are part of a wider imperative. Judges will be looking for projects which go beyond the obvious to adapt and re-engineer how ‘things are done’ and which inspire employees and customers to be part of a local solution to sustainability and the ”green” economy. Skills development is the foundation of reaching our continent’s potential. This award recognises the company which is going beyond the scorecard with support for learnerships or apprentice programmes in the workplace. Registered programmes which have significantly impacted employees’ skills or development opportunities which include mentoring, would score highly in the judging. You can upload photos or other evidence from beneficiaries to show how your approach makes a difference to employees.
