Music licensing company PPL is celebrating being named a finalist in the 2016 UK Employee Engagement Awards for the third year running.
The awards aim to provide a platform to recognise excellence in employee engagement that inspires action and drives the industry and the employee experience forward.
PPL, which holds its annual performer meeting tomorrow, is nominated in no fewer than three categories. Its people and organisational development department – which manages HR, facilities, quality and business change – will be competing at the only global dedicated employee engagement awards ceremony, which takes place at Wembley Stadium on January 26, 2017. The PPL team is also a contender in the customer engagement, internal communications and employee engagement – small to medium business categories.
“At PPL, we believe that it is essential to listen to and engage with our employees," said Kate Reilly, PPL director of people and organisational development. "The value of gathering feedback from staff members on an ongoing basis has been reinforced throughout the last four years and the success of the various initiatives we have implemented has been rooted in the engagement in the workplace. PPL has listened to its employees and used this insight to make changes, all of which have led to measurable increases in overall customer satisfaction and the engagement of our employees.”
The news follows PPL’s member services team reaching the finals of this year’s UK business in the customer centric organisation (process) category.
