Time to get your HR Excellence Awards entries in: deadline extended

Due to unprecedented demand, the deadline for HR Excellence Awards 2013 has been extended until Friday 5 April. Use this time to put those finishing touches to your entries that will make them stand out from the crowd.

If you haven't started your entries, and thought you didn't have enough time to enter – now's your chance. Early indications suggest this is going to be a record year for the HR Excellence Awards, meaning competition will be fierce – but also winning an award will carry that additional sense of achievement.

Running for the 18th consecutive year, the HR Excellence Awards is well and truly established as the key event for recognising talent in the HR industry and culminating with a gala awards dinner in London on 2 July 2013. Click here to find out more about the awards categories and enter.

Why you should enter the HR Excellence Awards

• To recognise and reward talented and exceptional work that puts people strategy at the forefront of an organisation’s business function

• To share this knowledge with the wider HR community and therefore improve people practice far and wide

• To attract prospective HR talent to brilliant forward thinking organisations

• The HR Excellence Awards are the longest running, most sought and highly respected in the HR sector

The entries will be judged by an expert panel of HR directors and CEOs next month, with the shortlist revealed in May's issue of HR magazine.
