Congratulations for being shortlisted as an excellence awardee in the 2024 Australian HR Awards!

The Australian HR Awards provides a platform for HR professionals, teams, and employers to receive recognition at a national level and celebrate in style. It is a testament to the importance of HR in driving organisational success and building a competitive advantage in today’s dynamic business environment.

The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on Friday, 13 September 2024 at The Fullerton Hotel, Sydney.


We conducted a call for nominations from April 2024 to May 2024 and received hundreds of nominations. This was followed by an intensive research period to verify the nominations and to ensure that those selected as excellence awardees were the most deserving.

As publisher of HRD Australia, we have an unparalleled presence in the sector, making the nomination and research process enormously comprehensive.

More information about the Australian HR Awards methodology is available here.


As an excellence awardee in the 2024 Australian HR Awards, you will receive recognition at a national level both in the lead up to the event and in post-event coverage (if you attend the awards ceremony).

Please note:

  • You are welcome to share this achievement within your organisation immediately; however, all external announcements are embargoed until Monday 1 July 2024, which is when we’ll announce the excellence awardees through The HRD Australia online channels and on the Australian HR Awards website.
  • Your submission will be sent to a panel of judges who will determine the overall awards winners.
  • To help us make the event more memorable, please provide 1 video following the instructions below, by Friday 19 July.
  • Book your table at the awards ceremony to ensure you are there to celebrate your success with your team. Bookings can be made online here.


The Australian HR Awards team will put together a compilation with all the excellence awardees videos to show at the awards night. This is an opportunity for the excellence awardees to showcase their work, or to simply put a face to their name! If you wish to be part of this, please provide a short video following the instructions below.


  • The video should be a max 5-10 seconds clip of yourself or your company/team;
  • This could be anything, such as: filming yourself or your peers at the office; saying ‘hi’ in front of your company logo; doing something fun; showcasing some interesting activities you have organised with your peers/colleagues.
  • Do not include any audio or text: we will add background music and text;
  • The video should be recorded 16:9 (horizontally) in high resolution;
  • If possible, use a tripod;
  • Try to avoid light behind you and make sure that there is sufficient light on each face;
  • Save the video with the name of the nominee (Name, Surname, Individual name for individual awards; Company name for company/team awards);
  • When ready, the videos must be sent to [email protected] via email, a shared folder or WeTransfer: wetransfer.com

Accepting the award
If your company wins, please discuss beforehand who will go up on stage to accept the award from the presenter. As the program is running to strict time, please refrain from making a speech. N.B. If you are an excellence awardee in two categories in a row, please make sure you have two different people present to collect the award in case you win. The first person who collects the award may still be outside having their photo taken while the winner of the next award is being announced.

Photographs and video
Immediately after accepting your award, a Key Media staff member will escort you off stage to the media station for an official photograph and brief interview.

The Australian HR Awards is a glamorous black-tie gala evening, where hundreds of HR managers, employers, and companies gather for a night of celebration, fine dining and exciting live entertainment. Every award winner present on the night will have their photo featured in the post-event coverage.

Book your table now and ensure you are there on the night to celebrate your success with your team.

Congratulations again and we look forward to seeing you at the event!
