CIPD announce finalists of People Management Awards 2011

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development -(CIPD) has just issued a press release saying that - This year's finalists for the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development People Management Awards have been announced after one of the toughest judging processes to date. Four new categories and the Michael Kelly Outstanding Student Award have increased awareness and secured participation from a wide mix of public and private sector organisations.


The Awards acknowledge the valuable contribution that HR makes, particularly in difficult economic times, to the overall organisation's success and sustainability. A winner for each category will be chosen from the shortlist by our senior panel of judges on 7 September. The official announcement of the winners will take place at the Awards dinner on 11 October, to be celebrated in London at The Brewery.

Last year's winner, Nampak Plastics Europe Limited, had succeeded in increasing employee engagement levels through strong leadership - this year's winner will also need to have demonstrated unparalleled innovation and outstanding practice in the management and development of people.

Jackie Orme, CIPD Chief Executive, who will be helping to judge the Awards, says: "I would like to say thank you to the organisations taking part, for their drive and determination in pushing the boundaries of good practice management and development of people.

"The introduction of four new Awards has helped to broaden the scope of the Awards process and allow for greater recognition of expert HR practices across many more fields of work. This year's standalone Awards ceremony marks a new era for CIPD, I am proud of the success of our People Management Awards and I look forward to reviewing the inspiring work of the organisations taking part."
