Forward-thinking HR professionals are being sought to enter the race to take home one of the most prestigious awards in the north-east.
The Extraordinary HR Initiative award – sponsored by CNOOC International (formally Nexen) – will honour an individual or team who can show how they took a creative and innovative approach to HR in the last year.
The successful candidate will have shown examples of new initiatives they have designed and successfully delivered, which set them apart from the crowd.
Carol Munro, senior manager at human resources, CNOOC International, said: “We are proud to sponsor the Extraordinary HR Initiative award for the second year.
“This award is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the innovations, creativity and bottom-line improvements being put into practice by local HR teams.”
Those entering must be able to provide evidence of how their initiatives have delivered a measured effect on the business and its people, and how their input and impact has contributed to the organisation’s competitive position as an employer.
Last year’s winners were Alan Clark and Nicky Bruce from VSA.
Other categories include Excellent HR Manager, Exemplary Employer of Choice, Extraordinary HR Initiative, Fantastic HR Adviser, Outstanding HR Director, The Top Cherry, Tremendous Learning And Development, Exceptional Employee Engagement, and Terrific Team Of Year.
Entries are open until midnight on Sunday February 10.
The awards, in association with Robert Gordon University and supported by Mattioli Woods, recognise excellence in the fields of human resources, training and recruitment.
Now in its 11th year, the 2019 ceremony will be held on May 30 at the AECC in Aberdeen.
The event continues to attract an audience of more than 450, representing companies and individuals from across Scotland, and it provides a fantastic platform for showcasing the best HR professionals.
