It’s great to be able to launch the UHR Awards 2023. As you know, a key UHR aim is to enable HR innovation and learning from each other, and to build our professional skills base: these awards give a great opportunity to do this, and to highlight creativity and success. We want to show the sector and the HR professionals beyond HE that our HR practitioners introduce cutting edge practices that have real impact, and which enhance organisational culture and performance within UK universities. The UHR Awards are a great opportunity to encourage and motivate the HR team, even in preparing an entry – and even more so if you win. Make sure your team gets the recognition you deserve.
This year we have new awards categories and have made changes to our criteria to take account of this. The new categories are for achievements in reward and recruitment; in wellbeing; and we also have a new HR Star Award for an individual that has made an exceptional difference. The nominations form can be downloaded below and you have until noon on Tuesday 28 March to return your nomination. Please note that there are two different forms this year, one for the new HR Star Award, and one for the other awards, so please be sure to use the right one. We look forward to hearing from you!
The winners of the UHR Awards 2023 will be announced at the UHR Conference 2023 - thankyou to all involved in making our conference a success each year, including this year's Premium Partners Notion-STAR and NTT Data Business Solutions.
There are seven UHR Awards – here are the categories and criteria.
At a recent Showcasing Good Practice event, an illustrious panel of former winners gave us their top ten reasons to enter for a UHR Award.
The deadline for entries is noon on Tuesday 28 March 2023.
Winners will be announced during the UHR Conference 2023.
Evidence of measurable achievement and impact should be clearly demonstrated, as the purpose of the awards is to be able to spread good practice that actually produces results. It’s important that your entry is a project, initiative or combination of activities that has already been implemented and had a real effect, rather than a good idea with potential that hasn’t yet made a demonstrable difference. Any UHR member HEI, regardless of size or type can enter, but it’s vital to provide evidence of your activity being cutting edge or innovative in the way it’s been implemented, and of its impact. The nomination form for the HR Star Award is simpler and asks how the individual is making an impact and a difference to their team.
A range of people with experience and knowledge of good people management practice within and beyond higher education.
