This summer the HR Excellence Awards celebrate their 20th anniversary. They aim to recognise organisations and individuals who push the boundaries of people strategy and are considered to be one of the most sought after, prestigious and longest running awards in the industry.

The School for CEOs will be sponsoring the Best Learning and Development Strategy. For this particular category judges will be looking for those that invest effectively in the development of their people across an entire organisation.

The winner for this award will be selected from the shortlist of finalists below:
• Allstate Northern Ireland
• Hilton Worldwide
• The Landmark London Hotel
• myhomemove
• United Utilities
• Virgin Atlantic

Partner of the School for CEOs, David Sole, is “thrilled to be sponsoring an HR Excellence Award. The Best Learning and Development Strategy is particularly pertinent for us at the School for CEOs as it ties in with our objective to prepare organisations for internal succession. We wish all finalists the best of luck.”
Winners of the HR Excellence Awards will be announced on 30th June at the gala dinner held in London Hilton on Park Lane.
