The Top 101 Global Employee Engagement Influencers

Global – July 30, 2019 – The Employee Engagement Awards today announces its complete 2019 #Engagement101 list. These are the top influencers and experts in the world of Employee Engagement.

The Engagement 101
The Engagement 101

This is the third time the list has been published. It recognises people from all walks of business: the boardroom, HR, wellbeing, employee experience, diversity & inclusion, internal communications, finance, technology and entrepreneurs. Each one has made a significant contribution to the development of Employee Engagement and the future of work.

Some inspire action, some educate, some recognise, and some have influence via social media. Some rip up the old and create new ways to engage people. But, all of the #Engagement101 are passionate about Employee Engagement.

The list was compiled with contributions from all around the globe. The #Engagement101 is updated every year to take account of changes in the discipline and to recognise the people who have contributed something new.

Matt Manners, founder of The Employee Engagement Awards, said: “Our organization’s purpose is to recognise, inform and inspire workplaces around the world to improve the Employee Experience and transform their businesses as a result. We created this list to be a source of inspiration. We want it to trigger people to emulate the #Engagement101 and inspire others from all walks of life. Now we are going to take it to the next level and collaborate with this community to deliver valuable outputs for the wider world of work. Watch this space over the next 12 months.”

Profiling and co-creating with the #Engagement101
Some of the 101 will be invited to speak at the various EE conferences around the world – a perfect opportunity to draw inspiration from their thinking and to meet them face-to-face. Some will also be invited to judge the award entries in their region. All will be invited to be interviewed on the Podcast, Engagement Zone.

Throughout 2019 and 2020 we will be collaborating with this influencer community to create valuable outputs: guides, ebooks, webinars and much more for the wider world of work.
