Finalists announced for Inspiration in HR Award 2021

Designed to recognise the work of human resources professionals, finalists for the Inspiration in HR Award have now been announced, with the award to be presented during the Security & Fire Excellence Awards on 23rd November in London.

SSRPersonnel-InspirationHR-21The Inspiration in HR Award seeks to recognise the work of human resources professionals. In its 15th year, the award is open to either individuals or organisations and runs with the support of IFSEC Global. Entries can be self-nominated; judges are looking for best practice in Human Resource Management where an organisation recognises that the HR profession is a business enabler and partner in managing a successful business.

To reach the shortlist organisations have demonstrated that they are quality focused and have a pride in looking after and developing their workforce. You will see a partnership in HR and operations management. Shortlisted companies see their HR function as giving them a competitive edge, they clearly demonstrate going above and beyond any current standards as you have to be a quality provider to make the Inspiration in HR shortlist.

This award recognises a critical differentiator in business application. Previous winners and short-listed organisations for this award have proven their credentials. Service sectors rely on teams of people operating across several environments, from customer-focused settings through to those that require an in-depth knowledge of technology. For their part, human resources professionals play a key role in the selection, training to meet the changing threats and monitoring of thousands of individuals across these different spheres.

The Inspiration in HR Award provides these professionals with the recognition they so richly deserve.

The finalists for the Inspiration in HR 2021 Award have now been announced:

  • AXIS Communications
  • Security Insitute SIG Diversity Equality & Inclusion
  • Man Commercial Security
  • Ward Security
  • Wilson James

A few words from several of the judges underline the quality of this year’s entries:

“It has been an honour to be involved in the judging process this year and to assess the nominated entrants for this prestigious HR Award sponsored by SSR.  As it was my first involvement as a judge, I would like to commend those who have been put forward for their diligence, initiative, and innovation. All have been noticeable in their own different ways and my congratulations, in due course, to the successful winner.”

“I was delighted to be asked to judge the Inspiration in HR Awards 2021 and was impressed with all the nominations.  It was a difficult task to differentiate between the entries, especially their reaction to reaching out to their workforce during the COVID-19 lockdown and mental health .  There are some excellent HR initiatives which have been introduced which will benefit the companies both now and in the future.”

“Please find attached my scoring matrix for this year’s Inspiration in HR Award. I enjoyed reading all the entries. Great content, and a good mix as well. Some focusing on the response to COVID-19 recovery , mental health , others on training and the more generalist HR approach with added dimensions.”

The winner will be presented with their prize during the Security & Fire Excellence Awards at The London Hilton Hotel, Park Lane on Tuesday 23rd November 2021.
