Our Thinkers and Doers
Our thinkers and doers include practitioners, academics, researchers, consultants, service providers, or representatives from membership organisations and professional bodies, all with extensive experience in the theory and practice of employee engagement.
Many of these experienced people come together to explore how to make new contributions to the field and share good practice and are willing to volunteer their expertise and time to further the aims of the movement.
They support employee engagement practitioners and leaders across the UK by providing insight, evidence, ideas, advice and experience on a range of engagement topics. They may have specific areas of expertise such as Leadership and Coaching, Wellbeing, Employee Voice and Innovation to name a few.
