HR Excellence Awards Gala 2021

The 13th edition of the HR Excellence Awards Gala will take place on March 31st, 2021, in Bucharest. The pandemic context is still preventing us from meeting face to face - therefore, the event will take place virtually, as it did last year.

We continue to offer distinct awards related to the size of the organization on every HR projects category. Therefore, we will award companies with a maximum of 499 employees and companies with over 500 employees. We wish to recognize not only the large organizations with complex HR processes, but also the projects implemented in smaller companies that have a proven impact in the business.

Please find below the categories we will award this year: 6 categories of HR projects and 5 categories for General Management. You can find a detailed description of the categories and the application form in the Applicant Guide [available only in Romanian].
