New York – June 21, 2019 – The winners of the 2019 North American Employee Engagement Awards, are announced today. Presented at the ‘sold-out’ North American Employee Engagement Conference in New York yesterday, the Employee Engagement Awards honor those organisations that put workforce engagement at the heart of their business strategy. This year’s winners demonstrate that Employee Engagement is now central to organisational success in almost every field of endeavour. They span government, hospitality, healthcare, IT, pharmaceuticals, retail, service companies and transport.


Founder and CEO, Matt Manners, said:  “Congratulations to all our winners. Every year the standard just gets higher. As always our independent panel of judges were impressed by the very high level of proof for the outcomes of engagement programmes. With regards to our overall Organization of the Year, it was the ability to engage a predominantly remote workforce that caught our judge’s eye. This is an issue that more organizations are going to have to negotiate well to remain competitive and provide a world-class employee experience.”


The EE Awards next moves to the UK & Europe, opening for entries on July 4, 2019. Our next conference will be held in Johannesburg on September 18, 2019. Find out more at
