HRO Today Association Awards Recap

The 2022 Association Awards program received more nominations than ever before, demonstrating both the tremendous work being accomplished in the HR community and the continued interest and growth of our Awards program year over year. The level of detail and information, including examples, results or ROI and supporting references – in each of the nominations received this year, demonstrated not only the great work being done by our nominees, but the commitment and buy-in from our nominators – who invested their time, and energy, on the finalists’ behalf -because they saw something that mattered and made a difference!

From the hundreds of nominations received, the awards selection committee had to select just a few winners in the North America, EMEA and APAC regions. Each region had upwards of 9 company or team award categories and 2 individual award categories.  The North America and EMEA awards were announced at the HRO Today Association Conference & Awards Program, held virtually last month on the 16th of November. While the APAC region awards were announced at the APAC Board of Advisors meeting, held virtually.

All told, a total of 46 awards were bestowed upon deserving teams/companies and individuals from across the globe. While the award categories available for nomination were consistent across all regions, in some cases we announced more than one winner, based on industry or company size, where appropriate.  Click here to access the full list of winners.
