What are the Workplace Transformation Awards about?

COVID-19 has completely changed the way we work. Companies were forced to adapt to the new norms of working from home and transitioning from a “partially digital” organisation to a digital-ready one overnight.

In those circumstances, fostering a sense of belonging and maintaining social cohesion amongst employees proved to be one of the greatest challenges faced.

Organisations have shown incredible resilience and agility in responding to this unprecedented crisis.  We want to recognise organisations and HR teams that leverage technology to meet higher standards of excellence as an employer.
