Australian HR Awards go virtual for 2020

The time has come to recognise the achievements of the nation’s best HR professionals

Australian HR Awards go virtual for 2020

It’s time, once again, to celebrate the outstanding achievements of the nation’s top HR teams, leaders and employers as HRD kicks off its annual Australian HR Awards. For the first time, the annual event will be held virtually on the 3 December.

After a year when so many HR leaders have led their workforces with empathy and compassion, the event will celebrate excellence in HR leadership. All readers and members of the HRD community are invited to be a part of it.

The expert panel of judges have faced a very difficult task choosing the winners, spending the last few months reviewing, evaluating, and selecting the best from a very high calibre of nominations. Judges have commented on the particularly high standard of nominations this year, with hundreds of incredible stories of HR leadership submitted.

Winning an Australian HR Award is the pinnacle of achievement for the HR profession.

Comedy extraordinaire Lawrence “Moonman” Mooney will kick off the proceedings, followed by moderated virtual panels with finalists who will share their success stories and award-winning strategies.

For the first time in the history of the Australian HR Awards, HRD readers will have the opportunity to go behind the scenes and hear directly from Australia’s most inspiring HR professionals about the secrets of their success and the way that they have supported their workforces through 2020.

The announcement of winners will start at 5pm.
