Special Guest: Matt Manners, The Employee Engagement Awards
Last week The Employee Engagement Awards launched across the UK & Ireland.
Our very own David MacLeod is the principal judge.
The Employee Engagement Awards (EE Awards) represents the game changers, the forward thinking businesses that strive to do things differently and put their workforce at the heart of its operation. In a competitive labour marketm businesses have to offer and be seen to be doing things differently to create an engaging and rewarding working environment.
The EE Awards celebrate the best small and big businesses the UK & Ireland have to offer. Even the 'unsung heroes' in an organisation.
Matt Manners, founder of the EE Awards, is with us talking more about them and the opportunities that exist for all Engage for Success supporters.

Many people are in this transformation phase from employee to entrepreneur. Operating a business can be stressful. Discover tips from David L. Brown, author of From the Botton Up: The Ultimate Guide to Business Planning to Profitability.
David L. Brown began his entrepreneurial career in 1987. He left corporate employment and started an insurance agency. In 2011 he retired and became a consultant for community health centers and entrepreneurs. David has served as president of the Michigan Primary Care Association, twice becoming the first consumer board member to hold that position. He also served on the board of directors for the National Association of Community Health Centers. David has received numerous awards for his work in the health center movement.
From the startup of a business to the president of the board of directors of a multi-million dollar organization, David shares his nuggest of wisdom from his journey from the bottom up.
Les is the President of Landes & Associates, specializing in aligning marketing communications with employee engagement. His blog is titled Inside Out, which is how you build brands, sustainable brands, from the inside out. That starts with employees and their engagement, their passion and commitment to their brand’s promises.
Les writes that he’s always felt a longing to get at the heart - the essential elemental truths- of what gets people tuned in, turned on, and eager to go the extra mile for the mutual benefit of themselves and the organizations they work for. I’m convinced that understanding those truths will help people ... tap into the full-blown potential of employee engagement.
While writing his book he discovered his single equation: the secret to employee engagement lies not merely in our capacity to imagine and choose, but in understanding how those qualities are inseparably interrelated.
Les writes his book as a business fable with two main characters. A searcher and a guide, a student and a teacher. The teacher guides the student through his journey of understanding that what engages employees is what separates employees from mere cogs. That’s imagination and free will. The power to see possibilities, to imagine a different future and the opportunity with resources and support to pursue it.
I can’t wait. Come join us.
