We are pleased to announce that the number of companies and individuals selected as finalists for the 2022 HRO Today Association Awards Program represents more than 70 companies. Open to members and non-members of the Association, many submissions were received for multiple categories in three regions: APAC, EMEA, and North America over the last 9 months.
“The Association is excited to once again honor the essential work that HR professionals do each day in all corners of the world,” said Renée Preston, Global Executive Director of the HRO Today Association. “Our finalists represent many facets of HR in a variety of industries and are shining examples of the important role that HR individuals and teams maintain within their companies and to the customers and employees they serve. Their work represents the cutting-edge role that HR plays and is helping to push the profession to greater heights.”
The awards for the North America and EMEA regions will be presented on November 16 during the HRO Today Association Conference & Awards Program, a virtual micro-event that will explore how to best configure HR to achieve the new Operational Excellence that’s required to meet the next wave of change. The right partners help HR to succeed, the wrong choices lead to failure. The HRO Today Association Conference & Awards Program helps bridge the gap for providers and practitioners. Individual and Team category winners will be announced between three educational sessions which will be presented by industry experts Dr. Peter Cappelli, Director of the Wharton Center for HR; Zachary Misko, President, Emeritus, HRO Today Association; and a panel discussion with several CHROs ready to share their success stories and how they welcomed and overcame the many challenges HR has had to face this past year.
The quality of nominations highlights how individuals and teams rose to the occasion in a year when, in many cases, all eyes were on HR to help overcome obstacles, redirect resources, and impact change. The finalists demonstrate the vision and experience used to effectively manage the challenges and opportunities emerging in HR and go above and beyond in answering their call to duty. HRO Today sees this as a sign that Human Resource professionals know that in order to continue to stand out in the HR industry today, a company, service or product must go beyond basic ROI. It must be truly unique in its ability to demonstrate innovative value, first adopters and even risk takers, with ideas and concepts that deliver game-changing results that are not simply “new” but, inventive - with innovative services, technologies and results.
Winners in the APAC region will be announced at a special virtual ceremony on December 15 at 8:00 PM ET. This meeting will be open to members and nonmembers.
