Engage Awards WInners

17 minute read

On 15th November 2022, Engage Business Media were thrilled to welcome 400 attendees to celebrate the 2022 International Engage Awards. The wonderful Jayde Adams, who most recently wowed BBC viewers on Strictly Come Dancing, announced each of our 20 winners in a ceremony that celebrated excellence under four overarching groups; Employee Experience, Customer Experience, Innovation, Technology and Integration, and Workforce and Workplace Transformation.

This year’s glittering black-tie ceremony was certainly one to remember – back at our familiar home of the Westminster Park Plaza with guests arriving with an excitement that only the Engage Awards can create. After dining on an award winning three course, our exceptional winners were welcomed to the stage to accept their award from comedian host Jayde Adams, before dancing the night away with live music from JazzBomb!

Our winners came from a variety of industries and from both large and small organisations, demonstrating just how versatile the Engage Awards are – demonstrative customer and employee engagement excellence is celebrated regardless of company size or budget allowance.

We would like to take this opportunity to extend our congratulations to all the finalists at this year’s Engage Awards. The results and rewards companies have achieved this year have been remarkable and proven how industries can adapt to meet customer and colleagues ever-changing needs.

The 2022 Engage Awards will be open for entries early next year and we have some very exciting news in that The Brewery will be our new home due to exponential growth. Keep an eye out at www.EngageAwards.co.uk for updates and announcements - it may be you celebrating next year!
