Enter the 2003 Personnel Today Awards, win a prize and join your peers for a
night of award-winning pleasure

HR is making its mark in organisations of all shapes and sizes. Now it’s
time to shout about it by getting your team involved in the Personnel Today
Awards 2003.

The search is on for this country’s HR pioneers and innovators.

The awards celebrate the very best in HR by highlighting teams that have
made a significant difference to their organisation and to the bottom line.
This year, we have a record 13 categories covering all core areas within the HR
function (see below) – giving you lots of choice to enter.

There are three new categories in the line up too – the Computers in
Personnel Award for HR Collaboration; Intellect Award for Innovation in Career
Development and RightCoutts Employer Branding Award.

If your team has implemented any kind of change within the last 18 months,
you should be looking at all 13 categories and considering which to enter.
Participants must read the category descriptions and then write no more than
1,000 words explaining what was done and why, and what positive outcomes it has
brought to the business or organisation. Supporting material with each entry is
welcome. There will be independent judges in each category and all entries will
be measured on the following five key criteria:

– Innovation

– Teamwork

– Leadership

– Effective use of resources

– HR’s contribution to the business

Entries can earn up to five points on each, adding up to total of 25 points.

Judges will select three shortlisted teams in each category and all these
finalists will be special guests at the Personnel Today Awards Gala Evening at
Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London, on Thursday 27 November 2003. Winners will
be announced that evening and all category winners will then compete for an
overall prize.

If your team is making a significant difference, why not give them the
recognition they deserve and participate in this year’s Awards? The glittering
gala evening, attended by more than 800 people, is one not to be missed.
Celebrity presenters Jonathan Ross and Ricky Gervais (aka David Brent of The
Office) were our hosts at the last two award ceremonies.

Entry is free and simply by making the effort, you could put your HR
operation on the map, share your good practice with others and win an
unforgettable night out for the team. HR directors, managers, chief executives
and other directors within the organisation can nominate teams and individuals.

Previous winners include Asda, Lloyds TSB, Pfizer Global, British Gas,
British Telecom and North Wales Police. So put your team in the spotlight and
enter now. More details available on the Personnel Today Awards website.
