2018 Employee Engagement Summit

EUROPE’S BIGGEST EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT EVENT

The Summit is the premier event of its kind in Europe and is back and bigger than ever for 2018, being held on 4th May in Central London. We’re excited to welcome organisations who have not yet presented for us to the stage, such as Ministry of Justice, University of Bath,, Big Issue, Wellcome, Monzo Bank, European Commission, ESCP Europe Business School, Taylor Vinters and more.

With research showing that organisations are facing a radically shifting context for the workforce, the workplace, and the world of work, the employee engagement team are faced with a number of converging issues that are driving the need to ‘rewrite the rules’ of engagement. For this reason, we’ve collated the best of the best within the industry to share their stories with you as to how they’ve successfully led their organisation through disruptive times.
