Chess was recently awarded the National Champion Certificate in the Employer of the Year category at the 2016/17 European Business Awards.
David Pollock, Founder and Chief Executive of Chess said “We’re very excited to have been selected as a National Champion. The European Business Awards are recognised as the showcase for Europe’s most dynamic companies and we’re so proud to be recognised at this level.”
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: “Congratulations to Chess who’ve been selected to represent their country as National Champions. They’re central to the success of Europe’s strong business community, and have shown the core principles we look for of innovation, ethics and success.”
Chess is also a finalist in the EE awards as the Employee Engagement Company of the Year. This can largely be credited to the ‘Chess Engage App’ which was designed in partnership with Engage Solutions Group, and has some great bespoke features including Chess news, benefits, 1-2-1 forms, a Gimme 5 chip reward scheme, surveys, push notifications and much more.
The digital Gimme 5 feature is an incentive that encourages peer to peer appreciation. Each chip is worth a pound that Chess donate to one of the many charities chosen by its people and the chips are also entered in a holiday draw twice a year, giving Chess people the opportunity to win a worldwide holiday.
