HR Innovation Award

Digitalisation is currently one of the main drivers of innovation. It is making lasting changes to our working environment and involves completely new challenges for human resource professionals. At the Zukunft Personal, the accumulated innovative strength of the HR sector is being recognised at an exclusive event. At the official event ceremony on 19 September 2017, the HR Innovation Award will be presented! The award distinguishes companies who are breaking new ground with their products.

A high-calibre jury with representatives from business, academia and the media will be selecting the finalists in four categories: “Soft and Hardware”, “Service and Recruiting”, “Further Training and E-learning” as well as the special category “Start-ups”. The winner of the HR Innovation Award will be chosen using established assessment criteria. And the most important of these will be the degree of innovation of the HR solution submitted. Other aspects are its USP compared to existing solutions and its market maturity and economic efficiency. The length of time taken to implement the solution, its price-performance ratio, benefits and relevance to the HR sector will also be assessed. A strong scientific basis and the technological quality of the innovation will be included in the assessment as well.

The winners of the HR Innovation Award will be given centre stage at the Zukunft Personal. During the awards ceremony at the official opening event on the first day of the exhibition (19 September 2017), they will attract the full attention of visitors and press representatives. An attractive supporting programme will make the opening event the highlight of the exhibition. They will also benefit from a lucrative marketing and media package with numerous advertising benefits. In addition, the winners will also be in the exclusive Innovation Pavilion on all three days of the specialist exhibition.

Do you have a forward-looking HR product or an innovative service? Would you like to put your innovative strength to the test? Then take advantage of this opportunity and win the HR Innovation Award with your idea. Applications will be accepted by 01.05.2017.
