We are looking for any and all organizations that have driven significant operational improvement by applying unique and innovative approaches to solving for critical HR, learning and talent challenges. In that light, the fundamental benchmark criteria for being recognized is also simple: demonstrated proof of positive business impact based on the change, initiative, program, or process improvement described in your submission.
Bersin & Associates will recognize the best submissions in each category.
You may apply to more than one category or to a specific category more than once, and you may apply if you are a previous winner. We have had organizations win in consecutive years.
You don't have to be a big organization with a big budget to be selected as a winner. We will evaluate applicants against their peers in three segments – global enterprise (10,000+ worldwide employees), enterprise (10,000+ employees nation-wide), and mid-market (fewer than 10,000). Both Bersin & Associates WhatWorks members and non-members are invited to apply.
