Announcing The 2012 Recruiting Awards 2 Comments


The stage is set for the 2nd annual recruiting awards program, and the site is open for nominations through Friday, September 21st.  Winners for 2012 will be announced live at the Recruiting Trends Conference in Las Vegas next month.

The 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 and not industry pundits. 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 corporate 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, HR.comRecruiting Trends and Talent HQ.
