Like the Oscars where nominees are selected by peer members, these Recruiting Awards are unique because we're the first to pair a crowdsourced vote with a judging panel filled from the front lines of recruiting and HR leadership.

Nominations are open for the 2012 Recruiting Awards

We are opening nominations for The 2012 Recruiting Awards today on Tuesday September 11, 2012. Don’t delay with your nomination because nominations will be open for just over a week through Friday, September 21st.  Winners for 2012 will be announced live at The Recruiting Conference in Las Vegas next month.

Nominations are open for the 2012 Recruiting AwardsThe awards are for recruiting professionals regardless of the industry or company they recruit for, and are open to corporate and agency recruiters.

With multiple award programs in the industry, differentiates these awards from others programs by:

  • The voting. Winners will be selected via 3 phases of judging.  First, there is a crowdsourced vote. This isn’t a popularity contest, it’s just one piece of the puzzle. Second, there is a panel of judges who are recruiting practitioners. Lastly, we’ll email the 2012 Recruiting Trends Conference attendees (all recruiting practitioners) so they have a chance to cast their vote.
  • The prizesWinners will receive a little more than just recognition and will be announced at the Recruiting Trends Conference in Las Vegas on October 15, 2012.

While there are many facets of recruiting that deserve recognition and credit for building the future workforces of the companies we recruit for, the 2nd annual awards delivered at this event will include the following 3 categories for recruiting professionals:

  1. The “Talent Hunter” (Recruiter of the Year) Recruiting Award:
  2. The “Recruiting Innovation” Award
  3. The Recruiting “Organization” (Recruiting Team of the Year) Award

A big thanks to all of the sponsors of the 2nd annual Recruiting Awards, online at, including ChecksterLinkedIn, The Recruiting Conference and Talent HQ.
