Created in 2007, the Excellence in HR Awards program provides a forum to recognize outstanding achievement within the industry's human resources industry. We are currently seeking nominations for three awards: Team Innovator of the Year, Aspiring Leader and the Social Impact Initiative which is the newest addition to our awards collection. C2HR has dramatically reduced the length of the nomination form for each award to encourage you to nominate a deserving company or individual. Nominations will be accepted from May 1-June 15, 2019. If your nomination is selected as a finalist, you may be asked to provide additional information. The awards will be presented at the C2HR Conference on October 17, 2019 in Philadelphia.

Nominations will be judged on the scope of employee participation and the social impact.
