Showcasing and celebrating the very best in human resources and people development practice across Wales.

Following our successful inaugural event in October 2017, we’re delighted to announce that the CIPD Wales Awards are back!
Awarded by the professional body for people development, supported and endorsed by an impressive list of sponsors, and judged by a panel of top HR and business professionals, our reputation is growing as the place to celebrate the contribution of HR and people development across Wales.
Once again, this is a great opportunity to share some of the outstanding, ground-breaking, and sometimes career-changing work that goes on across Wales. Gain recognition and acclaim from our influential judges – in front of the people management/development sector, your peers, and clients – by checking out our 8 categories, downloading the nomination form, and ensuring that you’re part of the ongoing celebration!
As last year, we’ll also be recognising two individuals – one who is embarking on a career in the profession, and one who has made a considerable contribution to the profession. So look at the people around you, and nominate your colleagues, bosses, or other individuals who demonstrate a true commitment to championing better work and working lives.
Good luck!
