Each of the award recipients have shown a quantifiable impact as a result of having a more engaged workforce, and they have achieved this by integrating engagement into four areas that Gallup has identified as vital to cultivating a workplace culture of engagement:

  • Strategy and Leadership

  • Communication and Knowledge Management
  • Development and Ongoing Learning

Gallup will formally present the winners with their awards during the 2013 Gallup Great Workplace Summit, May 7-9, 2013.
