Awards for Excellence 2017 – Shortlist

HR in hospitality 2017 Awards Shortlist!

I am delighted to announce the shortlist for this years HR in Hospitality Awards 2017. Well done to all of you that made it to final stage. We had some outstanding entries this year and from some very different organisations which was good to see, although this also made it incredibly hard for some of the judging panels to decide on a winner. Many of you provided fantastic supporting evidence that really painted the story that you were telling and helped the judges make their difficult decisions.
We hope to see all of you there on the night of Friday 29th September at the Rosewood Hotel London tickets are available from Kim Raynes at so book now!
