The 2021 UFI HR Award

The objective of this HR award is to honour and recognise outstanding initiatives in organisations that have successfully implemented remote working due to COVID-19.  The entry should cover the different parts of the process, including the involvement of the senior leadership, the role of the HR department and the outcomes, both within the company and from an external point of view.

Congratulations to the Winner ADNEC, UEA for their excellent initiative.

“With the UFI HR Award we reward best industry HR initiatives and of course the criteria for this year’s award were tightly bound to COVID-19. HR processes had to be changed in an immensely short time and one of the most important topics was effective remote collaboration – our topic in 2020. All finalists presented professional, profonde and creative HR strategies that go beyond a short-term change and state a substantial rethinking. A narrow decision in the end for the winner ADNEC from UAE whose entry showed clear strategy, high impact and diversity of action. Congratulations from the Jury and lots of success in further implementation.” shares Robert T. Heinemann, Managing Partner /CEO at HEINEMANN MANAGEMENT CONSULTING GMBH and Vice-Chair of the HR Management Working Group.
