Do you have a future leader on your team?

Ensuring HR is a truly strategic, value-adding profession isn't just about inspirational HR leadership in the present. To ensure the success of the function as it evolves to meet the challenges coming over the horizon, it's vital it turns its attention to those practitioners moving steadily up the HR ranks.

It's after all these individuals who'll need to really get to grips with what the future of work will, and should, look like - including the role of AI, leadership through uncertainty, and ensuring good work in our burgeoning gig economy...

So HR magazine would like to invite you to think which member of your HR team deserves a bit of recognition. Entering the 'HR Future Leader of the Year' category of the HR Excellence Awards is not only a great way of recognising a hardworking individual, but also of gaining recognition for your HR team and organisation as a place that practices what it preaches and truly invests in developing future talent.
