HR Excellence Awards

Shortlist Announced Soon

In light of the current challenges facing many businesses and industries, we have decided to move the date of the HR Excellence Awards gala dinner, which had been due to take place at the end of June.

We firmly believe that now, perhaps more than ever, the HR industry deserves an event that reflects its importance and value to any organisation. But our priority will always be our guests. That’s why we’re rescheduling this year’s gala dinner to make sure everyone can feel safe in attending what is set to be a remarkable event. 

The HR Excellence Awards will now take place on Tuesday 26 January 2021 at the Hilton Hotel Park Lane, and we’re already looking forward to making our 25th anniversary Excellence Awards bigger and better than ever. 

We are extremely grateful for all of those who have already sent in their submissions in what we realise is an extremely challenging time for those in the HR community. One of the welcome side-effects of rescheduling the event is that our deadline for entrants has been extended to 30 June.

We know how challenging this year has been for everyone and believe the remarkable work that has been done to keep employees safe and happy should not go unnoticed. That’s why we think next year’s HR Excellence Awards will be filled with the community’s best and brightest stars and certainly not one to be missed.

Many thanks for your continued support in these pressing times.
