New York – July 16, 2020 – The 2020 North American Inspiring Workplaces Awards today announces its shortlist of finalists. These are the companies that the judges believe put people at the heart of their business. This year’s entries have uncovered a new level of strategic thinking and excellence.

Inspiring Workplaces™ was created by the merger of The Employee Engagement Alliance and The Employee Engagement Awards. It believes in recognizing and shaping the new, forward-thinking organizations of the future. By shedding the light on these innovative workplaces, it helps to encourage positive change in workplaces as well as provide a source of inspiration and education for those who seek it.

At the heart of this new business is the engagement and commitment of a community of Inspirers to create a movement that changes the world for the better. No matter where people are in the world; whether they work in HR, Comms, Culture, Engagement, Experience, D&I, Brand, Finance or the boardroom; whether they’re a one-man-band or a multinational, they have a home in this community as long as they want to inspire change in the world.

The Inspiring Workplaces Awards is central to this movement, not only recognizing great work but to inspire others to follow suit. It will be sharing the case studies of finalists and winners alike via an online daily streaming series this fall. To register for more information, become an Inspirer at
