What does the #HRVOTYAwards mean?

Beyond a night of celebration, and one which creates memories, this awards show serves its purpose to highlight the trail blazers that have enabled and empowered HR to achieve above and beyond expectations.

Four reasons you will fit right in as a strong contender

Cement your industry expert status

In the #HRVOTYAwards special print edition that doubles as a best-in-class directory, why wouldn’t you ensure your inclusion? This is the platform to show seasoned HR practitioners that you are the go-to solution provider in your field, so take advantage of it!

Recognition for quality output

Strength isn’t in numbers, it’s a test of your capabilities and quality of deliverables. Making it to the VOTY shortlist is true validation of your hard work and commitment to excellence.

Be part of your client’s strategic planning process

Winning is secondary, but always being top-of-mind for your future and prospective clients is primary. Being a part of the special edition and an award-winning solution provider will help increase your brand awareness and recall, attract talent and reinforce client confidence that they’ve chosen the right partner.

Dare to disrupt and change mindsets

If you’ve made innovative and groundbreaking contributions to the HR function, this is the place to show it.

Do it for your team!

Participating and attending the awards is a great way to reward your team for their success and hard work. And it certainly wouldn’t hurt attract top talent!
