We are delighted to announce that we have received the Highly Commended Employee Engagement Company of the Year award at the 2018 UK and Europe Employee Engagement Awards!

The awards honours those organisations that put workforce engagement at the heart of their business strategy. This year’s winners span from various countries and a multitude of different industries, demonstrating how far-reaching Employee Engagement is today.

Winners were announced at an award ceremony at Twickenham Stadium on January 24, 2019.

Companies who were also nominated for the same category included E.On, Heathrow, The Post Office and Phonographic Performance Limited (PPL).

Nasrin Hossain, chief culture officer at the Society, remarked:

“At Shepherds Friendly we are committed to creating an environment where people want to work and our staff feel motivated and valued, so that we may achieve the best outcome for our members. We’re delighted to have been awarded Highly Commended Employee Engagement Company of the Year at the UK and Europe Employee Engagement Awards. It’s great to be recognised for our efforts in developing, engaging and rewarding our staff and goes to show our efforts in creating an environment where our people can succeed.”

Founder and CEO of the Employee Engagement Awards, Matt Manners, said:

“Congratulations to all our winners. This year the entries really have proven the transformational value that focusing on the employee experience can deliver.

“One of our main themes of the evening was the importance of diversity to a business. Diversity of thought can provide organisations with a real competitive advantage if they truly embrace it. In a world that seems to get more divided by the day, workplaces that create a true sense of community will transform the employee experience and the bottom line.”
