The Employee Engagement (EE) Awards recognize excellence in engagement that inspires action and drives the employee experience forward, honoring the organizations that put workforce engagement at the heart of their business strategy.

This year’s awards saw Trivallis and Unily beat out major brands like John Lewis, Orange Business Services and University of Lincoln to take home the ‘Best Use of Technology’ award for their digital transformation project, centered around the Hive platform.

"It is a great honor for Trivallis to be a finalist alongside such well-recognized names, and to win with Hive in that category is a huge boost to us as an organization and the housing sector too. I hope that this shines a light on the good work and talent we have in housing and encourages more people to come and join this exciting and innovative sector."

A look at the project

Trivallis’ Hive platform was recognized for its focus on improving the employee experience, keeping remote workers connected with a mobile app, and providing spaces for Trivallis employees to submit ideas to leadership, communicate across the organization, and receive support for mental health and wellbeing.

Vitallis put employee wellbeing at the forefront of Hive

For Trivallis, employee engagement has been a longstanding strategic priority. Approximately half of their workforce work remotely and travel often, so reaching and engaging all employees posed a unique set of challenges. They came to Unily needing an adaptable, robust solution to bring together their organization, and power a cutting-edge employee experience. Working together, Unily and Trivallis designed Hive to be a comprehensive digital workplace capable of transforming the day-to-day lives of employees and uniting their dispersed workforce.
