About the Awards

Returning for a 6th year, the UK Employee Experience Awards honours the hard work and dedication that goes into improving the employee experience.

It’s incredibly important to create an environment in which every worker can flourish. As more and more companies appreciate this importance, it’s time for those initiatives to get the recognition they deserve!

The UK Employee Experience Awards promote excellence and best practice sharing by gathering hundreds of EX professionals together under one roof. Beyond sharing your own initiative with the judging panels, you can connect with like-minded individuals from every economic sector.

The Awards have been accredited with the Gold Standard from the Independent Awards Standards Council, meeting all 18 criteria to qualify for the highest trust mark possible.

Who can enter the UKEXA?

We welcome entries from all organisations, teams and individuals - private and public sector - who are committed to improving the employee experience. We want to hear from people with interesting and inspirational initiatives to share!

SME or Multinational?

Every company needs to ensure its workers have the tools they need to succeed. That’s why we welcome initiatives from organisations of every size, in B2B and B2C environments. We find that SMEs and large corporations fare equally well in front of our independent judging panels - what matters is the strength of your initiative!

What Kinds of Initiatives Can Enter?

In the age of GlassDoor and other social media, workers will no longer settle for an average experience. The judges want to hear from organisations, teams or individuals in any industry that have gone the extra mile to enhance the employee experience.
