Leading the change: the UK’s first Employee Engagement Week launches


Reward Gateway, the global leader in employee engagement, launches the UK’s first Employee Engagement Week.

Taking place between 21st and 25th September, the week aims to raise awareness of what employee engagement is, the vital role it plays in business and the benefits it can bring both employers and employees.

What’s on?
To kick off the week, today Reward Gateway will publish specially curated content, available on its website. This will be a masterclass in employee engagement, and an introduction for those who are unfamiliar with it. The content will focus on what employee engagement is, the business case for investing in it (spoiler: it doesn’t have to cost a penny!), how to get it, why it’s important, and how to get started.

The highlight of the week is the Engagement Excellence Awards, which take place on Tuesday 22nd September and celebrate the absolute best in employee engagement – those businesses which are using creative and innovative ways to truly connect with their people.

Throughout the week, you’ll also see opinion pieces from Reward Gateway’s CEO and Founder Glenn Elliott,  key insights from the company’s Leadership Team, and case studies of those who are using technology to harness the power and contentment of their workforce.

Why now?
Employee engagement has become a buzzword over the past year – and with good reason. Engaged employees make better decisions, as they understand more; are more productive, as they enjoy what they are doing; and innovate more, as they want their organisation to succeed. Reward Gateway’s own success is testament to this.

Research shows that 71% of business executives know that employee engagement is very important in achieving business success but, only 24% say that employees in their organisation are highly engaged. There is still a lot to do.

Leading the change
Employee Engagement Week aims to take those all important first steps towards creating a happier, more fulfilled and more productive global workforce. Reward Gateway’s technology allows businesses to better connect with their employees. Through its SmartHub® technology, employees have access to one simple branded platform where they can view employee communications, rewards and recognition tools, benefits and discounts. Clients include IBM, American Express, Diageo, Heineken, McDonalds, Bloomberg, Unilever, DHL, Bayer, AT&T, Yahoo!, AOL and Groupon.
