The finalists for this year’s CIPD People Management Awards, one of the most highly anticipated events in the HR and L&D calendar, have been announced.

A winner will be chosen from each of the 19 categories, as well as an overall winner, by an expert panel of judges and announced the awards dinner on Tuesday 25 September 2018 at Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London.

Lizzie Crowley, Skills Adviserat the CIPD and one of the award judges, commented: “We have once again seen a tremendously high standard across all the categories, with organisations demonstrating the innovation and creativity that have become the hallmark of the CIPD People Management Awards.

“The rapidly changing world of work presents new challenges for people management and learning and development, but these awards demonstrate that companies are serious about stepping to meet these challenges head on. These organisations will be the standard bearers that will lead the way in people management and learning and development, and they should all be congratulated on their achievements.”
