Foreword

Welcome to Belgium’s most prestigious awards for excellence in human capital management.

Initiated 5 years ago, this great initiative aims at honoring, every year, the companies from the private and public sector that demonstrate excellence and tangible achievements in people-centric initiatives.

More specifically, we want to detect and recognize organizations that build a strong HCM capability to create competitive advantage, optimize business processes, enable innovation, foster collaboration, improve workforce productivity, develop talents, or improve customer relationship. Particular attention is also given on how those organizations sustain this capability in the long run by addressing the internal and external factors that are critical to their organisational effectiveness.

The Corporate HR Awards are organised and processed upon a strict and transparent process, clearly-defined criteria, and upon the control of a 100% neutral and objective Jury. As such, winning a Corporate HR Award is a highly prestigious and acknowledged mark of corporate accomplishment. And because the awards are given to companies and not to individuals, they are a hallmark of excellence that is valued not just by the the HR department, but also by the Board, employees, clients, partners, suppliers, and any other stakeholders. In addition, they represent an extraordinary trigger for corporate reputation, employer branding and talent attractiveness.

Award winners will be revealed and celebrated during a gala ceremony on 16 November 2017, together with the yearly HR Excellence Awards evening and in presence of 700 HCM leaders.

We look forward to welcoming you there!

Ann Van de Perre
President of the Jury
