Here’s your chance to recognize an outstanding HR leader

Human Resource Executive® is now accepting nominations for its annual HR’s Rising Stars awards, which recognize those who are near the top of their organizations’ HR functions and show a promising future as HR leaders.

Now in its 18th year, the awards honor HR professionals across a range of industries doing extraordinary work in their roles either heading a major HR discipline or as the second-highest-ranked HR executive at the organization. The nomination form and more guidelines are below. Nominations are due by 11:59 p.m. March 27.

A panel of judges assembled by HRE will evaluate all nominees, weighing how well they have demonstrated personal initiative, leadership, courage and a results-oriented drive. Read more about the competition and previous winners here.
