Melbourne, Australia — June 29, 2022 — Engage Squared today announced it has won the 2022 Employee Experience Microsoft Partner of the Year award.

“It has been great to see the positive reaction to new and emerging technologies from our customers,” said James Di Blasi, Chief Technology Officer at Engage Squared. “Our goal as a business has always been to coach and support our customers to create more connected experiences across their entire digital ecosystem.
