The cHeRies Awards is on the hunt for dedicated professionals to apply while they still can.
After re-launching due to the coronavirus pandemic, the awards, in association with Mattioli Woods, are looking for talented individuals who stepped their game up during the crisis.
One new category, the Rising Star Award will be given to an individual who is an up and coming talent within the HR industry.
Nominees will need to demonstrate a commitment to developing a career within HR Management and understand how important this sector is to organisation’s.
Robert Gordon University Aberdeen Business School sponsors the new award.
Head of the school, professor Elizabeth Gammie said: “We are delighted to once again be a sponsor for the cHeRries Awards.
“The awards recognise the contribution of the HR function to organisational success which has never been more important as we work towards economic recovery post-Covid”
Employers will also have their time to shine at the cHeRries as Aberdeen University Business School has sponsored the Exemplary Employer of Choice award.
One organisation who has demonstrated that people are at the heart of their business will scoop up the award but they must be able to show that the business strategy is inclusive as well as true to the values and culture of the business.
A strong employee focused culture within the business is a must with employees feeling valued.
People should be at the heart of any great business and we are pleased to continue to support excellent HR practice.”
