About the HR Awards, HR Leadership & Management Awards
HR Awards 2016


Launched in 2014, The HR Leadership & Management Awards celebrate excellence in HR and recognise that it will be key to the future economic prosperity of the Irish economy.

The Awards are vital to promote HR, as they allow innovation and achievement to shine, and the ceremony itself is attending by hundreds of leading industry figures.

The award categories reflect the main areas of excellence in the industry and we encourage you enter the ones most appropriate to you.

Shortlisted entrants will have their national profiles raised just by making the final, and winners will receive national coverage. And of course, there’s the beautiful trophy which the successful entrants will take away on the night.

This is an unmissable opportunity to have your work reviewed by leading industry experts, to get recognition from your peers, benchmark against your competitors, and attract new clients and top talent to your organisation. But don't just take our word for it...

What the Industry says

“The benefit is you realise how much you’ve done to contribute from a HR point of view to contribute to business’ success. It’s great for networking, it’s great for benchmarking. You can see exactly what other companies are doing and the standards that are being achieved.”

-Les Richards, MSD Swords: HR Team of the Year winner


“The kind of audience that we saw here tonight were exactly the people that we want to interface with. You have the leaders in HR, finance, CEOs, they are the individuals that we want to influence.”

- Joe Creegan, Zurich Corporate Pensions

“It’s huge for the team because it’s a reward for all the effort they have put in. It’s great for our staff to get the public recognition... when people see that we got an award like this they say that there must be something good going on in there.”

-Jarlath Dooley, Version 1: Overall Excellence in HR & Best Talent Management Strategy winner
