People & Performance Award 2017-06-07T08:37:06+00:00

The Peer Award for Excellence in People & Performance celebrates innovative HR, internal communication and employee engagement, and it does so in a way that distinguishes it from most awards for business in a number of key ways.

 

The Peer Awards are inspirational because finalists review each other’s innovative entries; they are open and democratic in that it is the finalists themselves that are the judges; they are easy to enter as submission and judging are online (which is also why they are global) and as there is no fixed format or length for your entry; they offer exposure in the media but also confidentiality if you prefer; entry is low-risk and the awards ceremony is a celebration of all finalists attending.


People & Performance Award Categories

Associate your entries with one or more of these proposed award categories, adjusting the focus of each as you like. When it comes to announcing the shortlists you may find that some have been altered to best suit the entries that are nominated.


Who can Enter

Entries are invited from internal departments (HR and L&D for instance) and from suppliers of relevant products and services.

Our one proviso is that the entry not be self-promotional, so that the nominated entries (which are basically case studies) can be presented to fellow professionals (the judges) untarnished by any sales agenda.

Entries should focus on one or more internal initiatives, all of which help present an innovative idea or approach. They can all have taken place within one client organisation, or across a number. An involved supplier can be acknowledged alongside the organisation in whose name the entry is submitted. Alternatively the entry can be in the supplier’s name, in the form of a case study championed by at least one end-user organisation.


Become a Finalist, Win an Award

It is very easy to submit entries to the Peer Awards, and we are keen to nominate any (non-promotional) entry that is clearly expressed, shows an impact in its target community, is doing something different and is likely to interest fellow HR practitioners (that is the other finalists, who are also the judges).

Fees

When you register you also say the awards you wish to submit entries for, which you can add to later. We have devised a number of exciting options, one of which is offered as a free bonus with each entry.

Please enquire for information on the special new People & Performance Enterprise Peer Award that can guarantee to celebrate your employees (or clients if you are a supplier) exclusively at the Awards Ceremony.


The Peer Awards Ceremony

The ceremony planned for March 2018 will again be a champagne afternoon cream tea at a prestigious Central London venue. It is here that all the finalists are acknowledged and the winners announced and celebrated.

New this year is the opportunity to celebrate being a finalist (with a certificate and a photo) at the Awards Ceremony even if your entry is not a winner, and (with our international clients in mind) the option to learn ahead of booking ceremony places if your entry is a winner or not.


Peer Review (Judging)

All finalists are invited to also be judges, and we anticipate that it will also be possible to register just as a judge without submitting any entries, to read, review and rate the nominated entries of interest, asking questions of the other finalists for further information and greater clarity where you wish. You may adjust your ratings later with the benefit of hindsight.


Sponsorship

Be acknowledged as a Supporter of the Peer Awards with a package (priced from £1,000) that offers exposure options for your brand at the Peer Awards and across our media coverage, at the Awards Ceremony and at the Winners Summit.

Award Sponsorship packages (priced from £10,000) allow you in addition to prominently demonstrate leadership and your support for innovative thinking in a key aspect of People & Performance by being acknowledged as the sponsor of an award category, an industry sector, a global region, a judging criterion or the whole award.
