What the judges are looking for

“After passing the ‘good’ benchmark with cost-per-hire statistics or reduced attrition percentages and proof of sound return on investment (ROI). The key themes I’d be looking to ‘great’ entries should demonstrate effectiveness of: knowing your target audience; the driving message; use of delivery channel; and rigorous creation and execution – basically the impact.” Tsz Wu, technical director and co-founder, Pink Squid

“For me, personally, it’s about communication that’s engaging, on brand and gets candidates involved in the culture of the business in an innovative and intelligent way. And, of course, achieves great results.” Manda Crowder, founder, andsome

“Originality, creativity and quality of execution – and, ultimately, was it successful?” Malcolm Kemp, director of talent acquisition, Betfair
