Personnel Today Awards 2020 shortlist unveiled

The shortlist for the Personnel Today Awards 2020 has now been announced, with an array of major employers showcasing the impact of HR over the past 12 months.

In what proved to be a challenging year for HR due to the coronavirus pandemic, Personnel Today’s team of awards judges were impressed by the high standards of entries, and deliberated carefully over which ones would make the shortlist.

There will be some changes to how we celebrate the Personnel Today Awards winners this year, however. Like so many others, this key event in the HR calendar has had to adjust to a “new normal” due to the pandemic.

After careful consideration of all options and in line with Public Health England, UK government, and WHO guidelines, we have made the decision to move the awards ceremony online this year.

Personnel Today editor Rob Moss said: “We’ve been really encouraged that, despite everything that’s been going on, the quantity and quality of submissions to the 2020 Awards have surpassed expectations.

“While unfortunately we won’t be able to celebrate in the usual way at Grosvenor House in November, we will still ensure that our finalists – and ultimately the winners – receive the recognition they deserve with our virtual event. Congratulations to everybody who has made the shortlist.”

The shortlist highlights the impact of HR teams across 21 categories, including learning and development, diversity and inclusion and family-friendly initiatives. It also showcases the contribution of suppliers to the HR industry, including employment law firms, HR technology providers and resourcing providers.

Moss added: “I’d like to thank our expert panel of judges for the time and effort they have put into deciding who made our shortlists – it’s no mean feat.”

At the 2019 Awards, The Co-op won the overall award after being shortlisted for three categories and winning Apprenticeship Employer of the Year.

We will share further information about the online awards in the coming weeks – register here to join us in celebrating the winners on 26 November 2020.

The Personnel Today Awards 2020 are sponsored by The Guardian Jobs and XpertHR.
