The deadline for entries to the Personnel Today Awards 2015 has been extended by one week to 19 June 2015.
Organisations will now have an extra week to finalise and submit their entries, to be in with a chance to join the 1,000 guests anticipated at this year’s prestigious event.
Rob Moss, editor of Personnel Today said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the response to the launch of this year’s awards, and organisations seem keener than ever to showcase what they’ve done.
“We have 22 categories this year, celebrating achievements in everything from graduate schemes to employee engagement, and we’re hoping this will be our biggest and brightest awards ceremony yet.”
The Personnel Today Awards recognise HR teams and individuals that have made an impact with their people policies and have delivered tangible benefits to their organisation.
If you and your HR colleagues have led an innovative project, driven down costs, been courageous in implementing change or achieved great results in the past 18 months, then you could be a winner of one of our coveted awards, presented in London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane on 30 November 2015.
This year includes a new award for the best graduate scheme, which aims to recognise the recruitment challenges in attracting the best mix of people and the learning and development opportunities that those people receive.
The award for supplier partnerships, which aims to honour the input of suppliers to the profession, also returns for a second year. This award is only open to entry from suppliers nominated by entrants to the other categories in the Personnel Today Awards.
Full details of all of the awards categories are on the categories page.
Last year, McDonald’s Restaurants claimed the coveted overall award, having beaten competition from teams and individuals from 114 shortlisted organisations.
Each category is independently judged by well-respected industry figures. Judging begins after the entry deadline and category shortlists are announced in July.
All finalists are invited to attend the shortlist drinks party in September, as well as the prestigious awards dinner on 30 November 2015. Previous guest hosts have included Alexander Armstrong, Hugh Dennis, Jack Dee and Rob Brydon.
