Nominations open for first-ever HRD Awards NZ

Nominations are now open for the inaugural HRD Awards New Zealand, an awards program that will recognise the achievements of HR teams and leaders over the incredibly challenging past 12 months. 

Presented by HRD NZ, the awards will offer a true snapshot of the best and brightest in HR and those who stepped up and put their people first at a time when it mattered most. 

Winners will be selected by an independent judging panel of leading senior HR practitioners and announced in HRD NZ online in February 2021. They will also be promoted for their achievements and thought leadership across HRD’s online content and industry events throughout the year. This is an unparalleled opportunity guaranteeing profession-wide recognition and a true acknowledgement that the winners are at the very top of their game. 

We encourage HR professionals across the nation to nominate their teams, colleagues, company or themselves. Online nominations are straightforward, free and open until 4 December.
