Hunt for the Most Influential Workplace Leaders Launched

The Workplace Event has launched a project to identify and celebrate the most influential names in the workplace and facilities sector.

Birmingham NEC

25 - 27 April 2023

•  The Workplace Event has launched a project to identify and celebrate the most influential names in the workplace and facilities sector.

•  Nominees called for across six different categories including ‘Inspiring Leader’, ‘Driver of Cultural Change’ and ‘Young Pioneer’.

•  Successful nominees to be celebrated at a ceremony at The Workplace Event at the NEC in April 2023.

The workplace and facilities sector is being invited to submit names for a new list that aims to showcase the ‘great and the good’ of the profession and wider industry. The Workplace Leaders Top 50, launched by the team at The Workplace Event, is designed to bring together the names of the very best leaders, thinkers, doers and change-makers that are influencing, shaping and designing the workplace discipline both now and for the future.

The workplace discipline, whilst having been spoken about for a number of years, is beginning to establish itself as a cornerstone of modern organisations, particularly as they emerge from the challenges that the pandemic presented. Therefore the organisers believe the time is right to establish an annual celebration of individuals that are leading that charge.

Tristan Norman, Group Director at Nineteen Group and lead for the Workplace Event said: “As the workplace discipline becomes more ‘mainstream’ we felt that it was important that we recognise those individuals that have long championed its value, pushed to have it recognised more widely and who sit at the very heart of its current and future spotlight.

“When we launched the Workplace Event last year, we were determined to provide a home for this community of practitioners and organisations that aim to support organisations with world class workplace management and we think this is an important part of showcasing the extraordinary effort that goes into that continued agenda.”

Individuals and organisations are invited to submit their nominations for the list at The Workplace Event website where they will be asked to categorise nominees against multiple categories:

Inspiring leaders – Those that have led teams, organisations or change in their organisation and can demonstrate improvements to workplace experience for their workforce.

Drivers of cultural changes – Those that have challenged the status quo and helped make the profession a more diverse and inclusive community or championed more sustainable practices.

Young Pioneer – The next generation of leaders that are shaping the future of the profession.

Unsung hero – Those that often don’t get the limelight but are quietly going about making big change for their organisations.

Innovator – Those that dare to be different, go against convention and brought genuine positive disruption to the sector.

Nominations are open until 10 February 2023 with The Workplace Event Advisory Council reviewing nominations before the Top 40 list is published and launched at The Workplace Event, NEC Birmingham, 25-27 April, 2023.

Registrations for the Workplace Event are open. Visit the website for more information about the Workplace Leaders Top 50 and conference content across the show.
