Meet the Judges

Every entry at our awards is assessed by an independent judging panel.

All our judges are experienced business professionals with passion and enthusiasm for employee experience; many have judged with us several times before and keep coming back!

Using the scoring criteria, they’ll carefully scrutinise your written submission and live presentation. Scores from each judge are added together to determine the winners in each category. After the event, every finalist will receive a detailed Feedback Report with constructive comments to help you going forward.

Our judge selection process is ongoing, but as soon as we add more judges to our line-up, we’ll post their details on here. Scroll down to see the leading professionals who are taking part this year!
