PPMA Excellence in People Management Awards 2017

PPMA is delighted to announce the formal launch of the Annual Excellence in People Management 2017 Awards.

The theme for our 2017 seminar focuses on HR & OD’s ability to operate in an ever changing landscape and reflects on the ‘new normal’. As with previous years, this is an important opportunity for us to celebrate the best about our work and say thank you and well done to our colleagues who operate in increasingly challenging circumstances. We are proud of all of the contribution made by HR and OD professionals across all Public Services and we welcome submissions from LG, Health, Civil Service and 3rd Sector organisations – this can include partnerships with Private Sector companies.

In recognition of changing times and participant and sponsor feedback, we have refreshed our Awards categories. We have a number of new awards this year that directly respond to some of the key themes we are wrestling with, e.g., productivity, commercialisation and sustainable change.

For all the awards, the judges will be looking for clarity of objectives, a degree of creativity and innovation and evidence that excellence and a real demonstrable impact has been achieved.

Why Enter?

By entering the awards you have the opportunity to nationally showcase your hard work and achievements, and to share best practice, your findings and your dedication with colleagues across the UK.

As always, we have a distinguished panel of judges from across local government, the NHS, sponsors and partners from the private sector – all leading figures and experts in their field.

We will be showcasing all the shortlisted entries on the PPMA website and we will be holding a shortlisting event in advance of our 2017 conference. That will be an early opportunity for celebration and recognition for all of our colleagues who entered.
