Nomination process now open for coveted 2019 Inspiration in HR Award

The Inspiration in HR Award – bestowed each year by SSR Personnel and Executive Profiles – is designed to recognise the work of Human Resources (HR) professionals. Now in its 13th year, the award is open to either individuals or organisations and runs with the support of IFSEC International. Entries can be self-nominated, with the independent Judges looking for demonstrable evidence of Best Practice in HR management.

To reach the shortlist, organisations will have demonstrated that they’re focused on quality and have pride in looking after and developing their workforce. There will be a partnership between HR and operations management. Shortlisted companies view their HR function as giving them a competitive edge and clearly demonstrate going above and beyond any current standards.

Previous winners and shortlisted organisations for this award have proven their credentials. Those winners have included ADT Fire & Security and the HR teams at CIS Security, Compass VSG, Corps Security, Wilson James and Axis Communications.

Service sectors rely on teams of people operating across a number of environments, from customer-focused settings through to those that require an in-depth knowledge of technology. For their part, HR professionals play a key role in the selection, training and monitoring of thousands of individuals across these different spheres.

The Inspiration in HR Award provides these professionals with the recognition they so richly deserve.
