HR Impact Awards Nomination

HR Impact Awards

Now Accepting Nominations!

Who is eligible?
An honoree can be a person, a team or an organization. Companies can be nominated in more than one category, although each program or person must be nominated separately. Also, each company can have only one top honoree each year.

What are the categories?
IBJ will honor efforts in the following categories:

  • Diversity and inclusion: Recognizes efforts to recruit diverse talent and/or retain and promote that talent. Diversity will be interpreted broadly and can include efforts that involve racial, ethnic, gender and age diversity, as well as efforts to recruit people who have disabilities.
  • Talent recruitment: Recognizes innovative programs that help identify candidates and attract candidates into all types of jobs in an organization.
  • Employee experience: A broad category that recognizes programs and efforts that make organizations a better place to work, whether that’s through strong benefits programs, work/life balance efforts, community engagement or volunteerism, or bolstering workplace culture.
  • Training and development: Recognizes programs that help develop talent throughout a company—from frontline workers to executives. These could involve leadership, safety, culture, diversity and other issues. Included in this category would be efforts to help workers go back to school or gain additional degrees.
