Wednesday 15th May was the biggest and most successful UK Employee Experience Awards in Awards International history!
More than 300 finalists gathered at the Park Plaza Riverbank in London to compete for a series of coveted prizes and share best practice ideas with one another. Everyone in attendance gained a greater appreciation for how organisations enable their staff to be contented, productive and able to realise their potential.
Business professionals from a wide variety of sectors celebrated the advances made in employee experience in the last year, and the standard of entries was exceptionally high.
Special mention goes to The Holly Private Hospital, who won gold awards in four categories and the Overall Winner prize for best individual entry. Octopus Energy and Brighterkind also performed strongly, winning two golds each.

The event itself stressed the importance of employee experience across sectors: awards went to organisations ranging from dating apps to government agencies, and finalists said they attained meaningful perspectives by learning how others approach EX.
And thanks to the generosity of everyone in attendance, we smashed our EXA charity raffle record by raising £3600 for Barnardo’s.
Hosted by Clare McDonnell, who praised the finalists for increasing employee-centrism in business, the ceremony also featured a keynote speech from Ben Whitter (a.k.a Mr Employee Experience) and surprise musical entertainment from The Three Waiters.
