The 2019 UFI HR Award


Employer Branding
How to attract and retain key skills

The 2019 UFI HR Award will focus on employer branding as one of the most critical issues in Human Resources today. Competition is continually increasing for the “right” people, those individuals that form a critical part of any successful business. Therefore, a strong corporate culture is needed that enables companies to recruit better candidates, but also to keep them. The objective of this award is to honour outstanding initiatives that helped boost the company’s reputation as a “great employer”.


Application is closed for the 2019 HR Award.

All entries will be evaluated by the UFI HR Management Working Group. The jury is responsible for the selection of the winner of the award, who will be designated after a two-step process:

1. All entries will be assessed. This assessment will lead to a shortlist of finalists (number to be decided by the jury) who will be asked to prepare a detailed, in-depth project.

2.The finalists will present their projects to the jury at the UFI HR Management Working Group Meeting in 2019  and a winner will be announced. The meeting will take place on 15 May in Birmingham at the occasion of the UFI European conference. The participation to this meeting is possible either in person or remotely. The jury’s decision is final, and the jury is not required to justify their decision.

The winner will receive free access to the UFI Global Congress in Bangkok, Thailand, in November 2019. They will be officially recognised as the award winner during this Congress, and will have the possibility of presenting their award-winning ideas during the Best Practices Special Interest Group session.
