CIHT Awards shortlist announced

The 2020 CIHT Awards shortlisted has been finalised following a series of unique programme of digital initiatives, including a virtual awards presentation tomorrow to announce the winners.

“This year, the CIHT Awards will be presented in a new and different way. Never more than now, has there been a reason to celebrate who we are, and how we will safeguard the future of our industry. For this reason, CIHT has developed a programme of digital initiatives, designed to share knowledge from all those companies that have been shortlisted, through to the announcements of the winners,” said the CIHT.

“These awards illustrate how when groups of people come together the whole can be greater than the sum of its parts. Entries in these categories showcase best practice in managing relationships and keeping people, your employees or colleagues, motivated and engaged. The examples showcased will serve as great inspiration for anyone working with the management of people (or those with aspirations to do so); whether that be teams, departments, whole companies or small or large project groups across boundaries of different organisations. In fact, anyone who works with other people can learn from these entries,” it added.
