Read this before you enter.
These awards aim to recognise exceptional work by HR teams in law firms across the UK and Ireland. Entering a category shouldn’t be difficult or time-consuming.
In general though, every entry should clearly state what you do (or did), and why it was exceptional or beneficial to your firm. If you’ve got any statistics that add weight to your case, it’s best to include them too.
The judges will give special consideration to effectiveness, originality, return on investment and best practice.
