Nominate a team or organisation

“Everyone should have the opportunity to be recognised” – Monica Watt MAHRI, Elmo Cloud HR & Payroll

Recognising excellence in your organisation is vitally important: it provides opportunity for awareness of high-value initiatives that can benefit not just the business, but the community as a whole. To this end, we’d love to invite you to nominate individuals and organisations from your networks that have achieved success through their great HR initiatives. 

If you or your team has made an incredible contribution to your human resources management, we invite you to nominate them for an AHRI Award and be recognised.
