The 2024 EX Impact Awards: Discovering Insights, Delivering Impact

Perceptyx launched its first annual EX Impact Awards earlier this year to recognize organizations that utilize the People Insights Platform to discover insights, act on results, and impact their employees’ experience in extraordinary ways.

We were humbled by the 40+ organizations who shared their stories, and by the thousands of People leaders who cast online votes to choose our five winners, acknowledging these organizations' dedication to driving EX transformation.

Earlier this week we officially announced the 2024 EX Impact Award Winners. See their full stories below:
