Recognition continues to be an important part of employee engagement, corporate culture, and our global HR association. For the past 10 years, the HRO Today Services and Technology Association awards have been a highlight at our events and an aspiration for those in the HR industry worldwide. We will again be recognizing our North America finalists and winners separate from the HRO Today Forum in May. Our Association Award Dinner and Gala will be held in conjunction with our second annual HRO Today Services and Technology Association Membership Summit, a conference and training retreat for HR services and technology providers, analysts, and HR practitioners. This event will take place on September 12, 2019 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the awards cocktail reception and gala will be held that same evening.
Winners for APAC and EMEA will be announced at their corresponding regional HRO Today Forum events. This year they take place in Hong Kong (June 3 and 4) and Dublin (November 4 to 6). Don’t forget to take a look at the programming schedule and agenda for our events as well: You don’t want to miss this year’s lineup of learning, networking and best practice sharing.
