Testimonials

Just look at the comments from your peers about the need for the Alliance and what they hope it will help them achieve.

"Employee Engagement needs a membership organisation all of its own so we can all focus on building the power of Employee Engagement."

Malcom Cotteral Head of Employee Engagement and Benefits Arriva UK

"The Alliance reflects the shared work that professionals from HR, communications and change management do together to improve the world of work."

Kate Jones Head of Internal Communications Tarmac

"The margin between good and great is pretty slim, and in my humble opinion the only way to be GREAT, is to ensure you engage, excite and ignite your workforce. I truly hope that the Employee Engagement Alliance will act as a catalyst for other leaders and organisations who like me, see employee engagement as their primary purpose in life..."

Charles Brewer Managing Director Mara Group

"Having an Alliance will provide the perfect platform to further identify and promote the importance of Employee Engagement."

Dominic Gregson Service Delivery Manager NHS Business Service Authority

"Finally! Employee Engagement professionals have a place to connect and learn from each other, on what is one of the biggest challenges to organisations nowadays."

Céline Schillinger Head, Quality Innovation & Engagement Sanofi Pasteur
