Enter the awards
Building an exceptional company culture is both challenging and rewarding. Why not be recognised for your efforts by entering our Culture Pioneers Awards?
The deadline for 2021 entries has now closed. Finalists will be announced on 11th October!
How it works
From 4th May 2021, we will be inviting HR and L&D professionals from UK businesses (no consultants) to enter the Culture Pioneers Awards. There are four categories to choose from and both individuals and teams can apply.
The awards are free to enter and our application process is designed to showcase proven culture change – not simply an introduction of new practices.
What we are looking for
Entrants will have the opportunity to tell us in detail about the work involved in their culture change journey – the motivations behind it, the challenges they faced and the successes they achieved.
The scale of the achievements is not important. We aren’t looking for best-in-show. This is about celebrating people who are committed to an ongoing journey to strengthen their company culture.
How to showcase your achievement
To successfully illustrate your achievements, you will need to exhibit specific accomplishments in your individual/team’s work across a range of different criteria within the nomination form. These include:
Your objectives and vision for driving culture change in your organisation.
The performance of your culture change activities and how it supports the business’ objectives / vision.
Evidence of culture change activities positively impacting employees across the organisation.
Results for the organisation that can be directly or indirectly attributed to culture change activities.
“Enigmatic, elusive, ethereal – organisational performance appears to be enhanced or restricted by culture. Culture Pioneers is our chance to showcase the impact a great culture has on balanced, lasting success.”
