The 2017 North American Employee Engagement Awards (EE Awards) in association with CultureNext by Maritz Motivation Solutions, today announces its shortlist of companies that put workforce engagement at the heart of their strategy.

Founder Matt Manners said:  “In our third year, we are seeing a step-change in entries and the investment being made in Employee Engagement within organisations. The boardroom seems to be waking up to the responsibility they have for their employees and the positive impact it can deliver the bottom line if they do. Join us in Chicago to see real world examples this June.”

The winners will be announced at a ceremony following the North American Employee Engagement conference on June 8, 2017 in Chicago.  The day will see speakers from respected brands such as Delta Airlines, Chillis Restaurants, Caesars Entertainment, past award winners, leading EE experts and even The Harvard Business School. The conference will provide practical advice to help Engagement professionals achieve better employee business results.
