How the Winners Are Selected
Winners of the inaugural Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Human Capital Leadership Awards were selected from 141 applications received earlier this year from 80 public- and private-sector organizations based in the United States and internationally and including both SHRM members and nonmembers.
The awards are presented in four categories: Strategic HR Leadership, Innovative Business Solution, Competitive Workforce, and Human Capital Business Leader of the Year.
The Human Capital Business Leader of the Year Award is presented to an individual HR professional based on career service and impact on the profession.
The remaining three awards are given to HR departments and are based on HR programs implemented since January 2005. Nominations for these three awards are judged on complexity of issue, innovation, deployment, overcoming obstacles and results.
All four categories were reviewed by a 20-judge panel made up of corporate HR executives, business leaders outside HR, educators/researchers, journalists and SHRM executives
To learn more about the eligibility requirements and nomination process for the 2007 awards, go to the SHRM Leadership Awards web site. Applications will be accepted starting in January 2007.
