The African EE Awards set to launch in 2017
The Employee Engagement Awards announces its expansion into Africa. Its fourth continent in three years
- Open to entries from companies and organisations based on the African continent
- Awards and Conference to be hosted in Johannesburg late 2017.
London – May 19, 2017 – The Employee Engagement Awards (EE Awards) today announced its first license agreement to launch The EE Awards across the continent of Africa. The agreement is with the South African based executive leadership advisory company Landelahni, led by Sandra Burmeister.
The EE Awards was established by CEO and Founder, Matt Manners in the UK mid 2014. Established to shine a light on the inspiring work being done in engagement, whilst communicating to the boardroom the value it can deliver to employees and communities, as well as the bottom line.
In the short three years from conception The EE Awards has a local presence across the whole of Europe, North America, Australasia and now Africa. There are also three new regions being explored to launch as early as 2018.
The business has evolved from purely recognition with Awards to education via best practice case studies and thought-leadership at its conferences around the world. These best practices will soon be shared online via our website www.ee-awards.com from June 2017.
The EE Awards has worked with and seen finalists from companies such as: BMW, Boeing, Cisco, Direct Line, Expedia, Ford, IBM, KPMG, Lloyds Bank, MasterCard, MetLife, Microsoft, PwC, Ralph Lauren, Slack, Visa, Virgin and many more.
Matt Manners stated, “Today is a landmark for The EE Awards. As we approach our third year anniversary we have signed our first license agreement to launch on our fourth continent. This is an agreement that will take us to a part of the world where Employee Engagement can have a real and dramatic impact on the lives of workers.
Landelahni’s vision for the African EE Awards is inspiring and focused on delivering a real human impact through good practice in engagement, within all types of employers across the continent. The EE Awards model of recognition and education is based on local experiences and culturally relevant practices. We will be working closely with them to make year one a great success.”

Tricia Sibbons, COO, The African EE Awards, commented, “we are delighted to be joining the global EE Awards family, who have established an outstanding practice and presence in the employee engagement sector.

The Employee Engagement Awards (EE Awards) is the first and only global, dedicated Employee Engagement Awards & conference initiative. 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.
