With only 15% of the global workforce engaged and happy in their line of work according to Gallup, redefining the employee experience has become a constant challenge for HR leaders.

But while most organizations are still figuring out the enigma of employee satisfaction, 50 companies have been recognised as game-changers.

Achievers, a company specialising in employee rewards and recognition, has unveiled its global list of the most engaged workplaces excelling in the ‘Eight Elements of Employee Engagement’:

  • Leadership

  • Rewards and Recognition
  • Professional and personal growth
