Think Relocate Awards Think Global People Awards

12. Strategic management or HR initiative of the year

This award is for corporate businesses (not service suppliers) delivering a strategic management or HR industry sector initiative that demonstrates outstanding leadership and excellence in global people management.

Your initiative could, for example, address change management at a strategic or operational level across a global organisation.

Equally deserving of recognition are strategic or operational initiatives encouraging the application of big data, tracking and statistics, or cost-saving initiatives with market impact.

Perhaps your initiative covers talent management or resourcing, working with other internal departments and/or external suppliers as part of a wider team managing people globally. It also could reflect an engagement initiative following a merger or acquisition.

Organisational size isn't important, provided the initiative demonstrates successful outcomes, relevance to understanding business needs and/or managing change.

Entrants must:

  • Highlight how your entry is inspirational and why you should win this award category
  • Explain how an exceptional quality and personalised experience is provided and to whom it applies
  • Demonstrate responsiveness, resource-efficiency and cost-effectiveness, showing how value is added to business outcomes
  • Show how you manage your own people so that they demonstrate commitment, engagement and passion in delivery of outputs

The judges will be looking for proof of consistently high standards and excellent service – for example, customer/client testimonials, feedback forms and/or survey results.
