HR Excellence Awards Overview



The HR Excellence Awards gives us an opportunity to showcase the great work of HR professionals and share emerging best practices in Human Resources. 

The HR Excellence Awards include two types of awards - Business Excellence Awards and Professional Excellence Awards. The Business Excellence Awards include four categories which align with the key professional practices of Human Resource Professionals while the five Professional Excellence Awards are designed to recognize specific individuals for their unique contributions.

CPHR Manitoba encourages organizations and individuals to nominate themselves or others for an Excellence Award by submitting an application to the CPHR Manitoba office. When submitting your initiative consider how the project was innovative, creative and collaborative and the overall impact to the organization. Ensure your submission clearly aligns to a specific award. We recognize that several awards could potentially have implications in another award category; however, for the purpose of evaluation, your submission must directly relate to only one award category.
