Brandon Hall Group opens applications for 30th HCM Excellence Awards


Now entering its 30th year, the HCM Excellence Awards® hosted by Brandon Hall Group is the most prestigious awards program in the industry. Often called the “Academy Awards” by Learning, Talent and Business Executives, the program was one of the first of its kind when it debuted in 1993.

Brandon Hall Group has opened applications for the 30th annual HCM Excellence Awards® which expects to receive more than 2,000 submissions from organizations around the world.

“Competition for top talent is at an all-time high, organizations that are innovative in the human capital management strategies are winning, and those are the organizations that submit for our awards,” said Rachell Cooke, Brandon Hall Group, COO. “We have seen some of the best strategies over the last three years and expect to see the bar raised again this year.”

The HCM Excellence Awards® recognize top organizations that successfully deployed programs, strategies, modalities, processes, systems, and tools that achieved superior and measurable results in Human Capital Management. There are more than 100 award categories in Learning and Development, Talent Management, Talent Acquisition, Leadership Development, Human Resources, Sales Performance, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and Future of Work.

“The awards program attracts global entrants from all types of organizations, making it truly best of the best,” said Mike Cooke, Brandon Hall Group, CEO. “It’s amazing to see what start-ups are doing comparatively with conglomerates, and one region is offering its employees vs another. But each program is judges based on its own weight.”

Judges score each entry, and then the judging and scoring are reviewed by Brandon Hall Group’s executive leadership team, led by Rachel Cooke. Gold, Silver, and Bronze award levels are determined by the number of points.

The deadline to apply is April 14, 2023, with winners being announced August 17th. Winners will also be invited to accept their award in person at the annual HCM Excellence Conference.
