PPMA Excellence in People Management Awards 2015

The PPMA has always been committed to seeking out, sharing and celebrating the best practice in the attraction, development, retention and management of people in the public sector.

The theme for our 2015 seminar continues with “Pride, Community, Future” and is all about celebration as it recognises 40 years of PPMA. There is no better time to say thank you and well done to your teams through celebrating their determination, innovation and passion in public services.

Through our refreshed PPMA Excellence in People Management Awards, we want to shine a light on the innovative and creative projects that are making us proud in public service HR. Above all, these are individuals, teams and organisations, whom, in these challenging times, are supporting our communities to have vibrant futures.


We have a number of new awards this year that recognise that public services are being delivered in new and different ways, with partners, other organisations, the third sector, as well as across health, police, fire and with specialist suppliers. The new award categories are based on member feedback and recognise that our services are changing.

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.
