HR Excellence Awards 2016

HR Excellence Awards 2016

The HR Excellence Awards are the longest running, most sought after and highly regarded in the industry.

Returning for their 21st year, the Awards are celebrating the light HR shines on business – how innovative people strategy can transform not just the culture of an organisation, but its bottom line too.

The categories for 2016 include the new ‘Best global HR strategy’ and ‘HR future leader of the year’, ensuring the Awards represent the increasingly international nature of business while not forgetting the grassroots of HR.

The HR Excellence Awards are hard to win. Any award worth winning should be. The judging panel consists of top HR directors and CEOs from a range of organisations and the criteria has been tightened for 2016, meaning only the very best entries make it on to the shortlist.

Ensure you are part of the 21st HR Excellence Awards. Ensure you are a part of raising the profile of HR as a profession. Take a look at the categories, read about the 2015 winners and enter now.
