Present your initiative to a live judging panel in the morning and use the opportunity to attend as many open Finalist presentations as you can! Start the afternoon with a champagne drinks reception and the chance to network with likeminded employee experience enthusiasts. It is then time to enjoy a gala luncheon whilst discovering who the Winners of each category are during the Awards ceremony. We will then announce the Overall Best Employee Experience of the Year Award! To keep the celebrations alive, join us at the After Party and dance the night away!

After the Awards Finals, we will collate all of the scores and feedback from Judges to produce your custom benchmark feedback report. The benchmark report will highlight how the Judges scored your entry and yourpresentation as well as how these scores compared to those of other Finalists in your category. It will include all of the comments provided by the Judges based upon both your written entry and your live presentation at the Awards Finals.

Your journey doesn’t end here though… whether you’re a Finalist or a Winner, make sure you share your success both internally and externally.
