Prove you’re worth it and win

Where are the UK’s most talented HR innovators? Who sets the pace for change
in people management? Which organisations are pioneering employers? The search
is on to find and reward the outstanding talent within this country’s human
resources profession

It’s that crucial time of year again when Personnel Today launches its
annual awards in recognition of the achievements of its readers. This is our
fourth year for what has become the key industry event and the Personnel Today
Awards 2002 promises to be our best yet.

This year, we have more categories than ever – giving you lots of choice to
enter and covering no less than 11 core areas within the HR function.

There are four new sponsors supporting the 2002 Awards – Andersen, Aon
Health Solutions, SHL and Snowdrop Systems. One significant new category has
also been added – the Andersen Award for Innovation in Measuring Human Capital.

This award recognises the growing importance of quantifying the value of
human capital and underlines the editorial commitment Personnel Today has made
in the last 18 months towards strengthening reader awareness of this area. The
judges for this category will be looking for HR teams in enterprises which have
broken new ground in measuring human capital return on investment.

Details of the 11 categories are listed here. As always, entrants will be
expected to provide clear evidence to support their claims and prove positive
outcomes for their business or organisation. Any company or organisation can
enter up to two categories. Entries can be submitted by HR directors, managers,
chief executives and other directors within the business. Entries from large or
small organisations serving the public and private sectors are welcome.

The ethos of the Awards will be to spotlight three shortlisted teams in each
category who can demonstrate innovation and achievement, teamwork, leadership,
effective use of resources and evaluate HR’s contribution to the organisation
as a whole.

So, if your team has made a difference in the last 18 months why not win the
recognition you deserve. Entry costs nothing, and simply by making the effort
you could put your operation on the map, share your good practice with others
and win your team an unforgettable night out at the spectacular Great Room,
Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London on 31 October. All 33 shortlisted teams will
be invited to the glittering awards ceremony, attended by up to 900 key people
from the world of HR and industry.

Don’t miss out, let your team stand out. More details are available on the
Personnel Today Awards websitewww.personneltodayawards.com
