A message on coronavirus
Personnel Today recognises that, during these unprecedented times, our shortlist party and the Awards ceremony, scheduled for the autumn, will have to be kept under review. The wellbeing of our guests, judges, sponsors and staff will be our priority throughout the 2020 Awards programme.
The 22nd Personnel Today Awards celebrate the very best achievements and innovations in HR and L&D.
Have you and your HR team led an innovative project or transformation, helped your people adjust to significant change or delivered cost-savings through your people policies?
Have you successfully overcome recruitment challenges, or introduced policies to boost diversity and inclusion? If so, you could be in with a chance of winning one of our coveted awards at a glittering awards ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane in November 2020.

Personnel Today editor Rob Moss said: “At this time more than anytime, we’re keen to recognise the HR community’s outstanding achievements.
“We’ve been encouraged by the number of enquiries we have received asking when we open for entries and we’re looking forward to celebrating HR professionals’ hard work.”
This year we welcome back recruitment process outsourcing specialist PeopleScout as our gold sponsor and The Guardian Jobs, Lloyds Banking Group and XpertHR are category sponsors.
