HR Excellence Awards Overview




Designed to showcase outstanding Human Resource achievements in Manitoba, HRMAM’s HR Excellence Awards honour employers and individuals who are leaders in diversity, development, impact, and innovation.

The HRMAM 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.

HRMAM encourages organizations and individuals to nominate themselves or others for an Excellence Award by submitting an application to the HRMAM 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.

Business Excellence Awards

These awards recognize large and small Manitoba businesses that have harnessed the power of HR to advance their business goals.  Organizations that have successfully demonstrated leadership in Human Resource programs or services by creating, developing, and implementing related initiatives that have resulted in significant and measurable benefits to their organization are eligible. Organizations can be nominated in the following categories in either the small/medium business category (<250 employees) or the large business category (>250 employees):

  • Health, Wellness and Safe Workplace Award
  • Organizational Strategy and Engagement Award
  • Workforce Planning and Talent Management Award
  • Employee Development, Relations and Total Rewards Award

Professional Excellence Awards

These awards recognize individuals who apply their expertise to the objectives of their organization and the people they support.
