Investing in people strategy and successfully scaling a culture of employee engagement helps top organizations move ahead of the pack. To acknowledge the efforts of today’s people-first business leaders, Scaling Up and Emplify are proud to present the ScaleUp Culture of the Year Award.

The award winners will be announced onstage at theScaleUp Summitin Anaheim, CA October 15-16th. While there can only be one winner in each category, every company that completes the application process will receive a personalized employee engagement snapshot from Emplify.
There will be three award categories, based on company size:
