The Corporate Engagement Awards 2020 opens for entries today. The awards, now in its 10th year, recognise the best in relationships and reputation management through partnerships, sponsorships and CSR.

An expert panel of corporate communications and engagement leaders will judge the entries against rigorous criteria. Winners will be chosen in 30 categories, celebrating successful partnership development, collaborations and communications.

The winners of the awards set the benchmark in sustainable development, CSR initiatives and corporate engagement across Europe. The Grand Prix winners exemplify that excellence across their communications activities.

Last year’s Grand Prix winner, Warner Bros. Entertainment, worked with partners to make the entertainment industry more inclusive, diverse and welcoming to young creatives across Britain. Winners from other categories included UBS, which supported local schools and communities, and Samsung, which partnered the Science Museum to bring change in STEM education. All winners proved a consistent commitment to CSR, sustainability and collaborative working.

The past ten years have seen a shift in employee attitudes and those companies that strive to and achieve meaningful internal engagement are the ones attracting and retaining sought-after employers.

CEA 2020 winners will be announced in June 2020 at a gala ceremony in London.
