The team behind DisruptHR NYC are thrilled to reveal THE WORKIES, the first international awards recognizing those working in talent, culture & brand and technology in the HR industry. The inaugural awards gala for The Workies will be held in New York City on October 24th, 2019, at Grant Thornton LLP.
“We observed a gap in the US market for awarding the crucial work of HR in achieving business objectives, whether that’s improving diversity within a Fortune 500 company or creating an outstanding employer brand”, said The Workies co-founders Grace and Barnaby Cook “The Workies aim to recognize the work of teams, individuals and technology in HR, which often go unnoticed. The role of HR is to protect and develop a company’s most valuable resource – its people. It’s time to celebrate these achievements.”
Entries are open for The Workies and the team hopes to attract more than 100 nominations from HR practitioners for categories such as HR Team of the Year, Best Onboarding Process and HR Impact on Business Strategy. The Brand & Culture track will award the work of Marketing agencies and HR teams, creating authentic brand materials and results-driven campaigns. Technology vendors will be rewarded for providing cutting-edge platforms enabling HR teams to thrive.
The Workies are hosted in partnership with the Work Awesome Conference, a full-day event empowering people for the future of work, enabling companies to understand which tools, skills and strategies will make them fit for the future. “We couldn’t be more proud to be a part of The Workies”, said Felix Zeltner, co-founder of Work Awesome. “Just like our conferences, The Workies champion the many amazing people initiatives from large organizations to small teams that sometimes go unnoticed, but change things for the better.” The Work Awesome Conference and The Workies jointly take place at the New York Office of Grant Thornton LLP on October 24th so that nominees, attendees and supporters can enjoy both events.
