Welcome to the May edition of the HPMA membership newsletter.
The HPMA NI Awards 2019 are now closed.
The awards recognise, reward and share outstanding work in Human Resources in the HSC, by individuals and teams who have made a real difference to their organisation or department.
Following the feedback from applicants and committee members last year, we have revised the assessment criteria for each of the awards to ensure these are a direct read-across from the National awards – thus ensuring ease of completion for those applicants seeking to apply both locally and nationally. The only difference is that of HR Professional of the Year (which doesn’t exist within the National awards).
We have also decided to alternate one of the five award categories each year, in order to ensure appropriate recognition from across the HR & OD family. So this year we have replaced the Health and Wellbeing category award with the award for OD, Learning & Development. This is also a category within the National awards.
There are 5 award categories available for nominations this year:
- Rising Star Award (the Alan Gilbert Memorial Award)
- HR Professional of the Year
- HR Team of the Year
- Award for Innovation in HR
- Award for OD, Learning & Development
The Top 3 nominees in each category will be informed week commencing 18th March and will be invited to attend the HPMA NI Awards dinner on Thursday 4th April in the Hilton Hotel, Belfast City Centre.
Very best of luck to everyone!
