Key Dates

Celebrate Best HR Work in the Industry

Human Resources Online is delighted to announce the return of the most anticipated and flagship event – HR Distinction Awards and HR Vendors of the Year Awards 2022!

HR Vendors of the Year Awards recognises HR service providers which then compliments our HR Distinction Awards; both being a celebration for organisations that have demonstrated success through HR initiatives via organizational growth, human capital strategies, and performance based solutions and implementations.

These awards are open to in-house HR practitioners and their respective companies as well as HR service providers that have made significant impact, successful engagements, and positive track records despite the most challenging conditions in recent time.

HR Distinction Awards and HR Vendors of the Year Awards are judged by an independent panel that includes experienced and expert HR industry leaders who possess a wide range of knowledge and skills within human resources management and solutions to determine the winners.


This year, the HR Distinction Awards offer 21 categories for industry professionals to enter, honouring best-in-class HR teams and individuals for their spectacular work executed across the entire HR function. The awards recognise teams and individuals who were resilient in pushing the boundaries of people strategy, and achieving new heights in employee engagement, performance management, and more.

While HR Vendors of the Year Awards consist of 17 categories for HR vendors to enter, providing them the chance to position themselves as the best in their respective sectors. Whether you specialise in recruitment, training, C&B, coaching, staff management, HR management, corporate culture, corporate wellbeing, leadership, or anything in between, join us to let clients, talent and the competition know you mean business.

We wish you all the very best of luck with your submissions!
