On Thursday 26th January, the 2016 UK Employee Engagement Awards in association with People Insight, announced its winners – the companies that put workforce engagement at the heart of their business strategy. And, of course, Touchstone was in there, scooping the award in the Inclusion and Diversity category. We were recognised for our allies programme “Pink Pals”, which involves staff throughout the organisation in supporting equality and inclusion for LGBT+ staff.
Founder and CEO Matt Manners said: “The world of engagement is evolving and creating positive change. We are starting to see more and more focus on engagement that benefits both the employee experience and the business bottom line.”
Tom Debenham, MD of People Insight, said: “The boardroom battle has been won – we all know that engaged employees drive business results and customer experience. What we are now beginning to see proven is the deep importance of engagement at work to lifetime wellbeing – which makes the incredible achievements of these finalists so much more important and inspiring.”
