The Award

Theme: Back to Basics

It is prestigious to be a winner or to be shortlisted for an HR Excellence award as it is true excellence that is being looked for. Ensure the judges get a strong narrative that includes the impact the initiative had on the business using relevant metrics and make it real. The best entries are not necessarily the most ‘innovative’ per se, but those which describe strategies that are perfectly suited to the business, the context in which it operates and make a genuine difference to employees and to wider organisational success.
