CAI is now accepting nominations for its Ovation Awards for HR Excellence. The awards, created by CAI in 2007, recognize local employers for their innovative people practices that have positively impacted business results. Companies that win the award gain public recognition for their achievements, and they receive a great opportunity to present their winning people practice.
Three categories make up the awards: small company (less than 250 employees), mid-size company (250 to 500 employees) and large company (more than 500 employees). The nominating process is free and easy. Email CAI’s Director of Member Development, Doug Blizzard, at firstname.lastname@example.org and include a summary of your best practice and the impact it has had on your organization. The summary should be two-to-three paragraphs and include the following: the business need, how you implemented the solution and measurable and/or forecasted business results.
CAI will accept submissions related to any area in HR. Examples of acceptable people practices include: maximizing an opportunity, implementing a wellness program, recruiting efforts for top talent, strategic planning for employee engagement, etc. The deadline for submitting nominations is November 30, 2011.
Winners will receive their awards at CAI’s 2012 HR Management Conference scheduled for February 21-22, 2012. Winning companies will also deliver a one-hour presentation on their exceptional people practice during the conference.
