Celebrating the best in HR and people management in Northern Ireland

The CIPD NI HR Awards are the most prestigious and highly regarded awards for the HR profession in Northern Ireland, with more than 340 HR professionals attending last year’s sold-out gala event.

Returning in 2020 for their eighth year, the CIPD NI Awards celebrate the contribution of HR and People Management in business. Through an engaging judging process, the awards identify organisations and practices that are championing better work and working lives. This year we have updated some of our award categories to reflect what’s happening in HR and L&D. There’s also a new online application platform for entry submissions. And of course, we welcome many new and returning sponsors for this year’s awards.

The judging panel consists of top HR and business professionals from a range of organisations across the UK and the judging criteria ensures that  only the best entries will make the shortlist for 2020.

Ensure you are part of the eighth annual CIPD NI Awards and are a part of raising the profile of the HR profession. Explore the categories and submit your entry.
