  • 35 top performing talent tech providers shortlisted in 13 award categories  
  • 20 judges will choose the Talent Tech Champion of Champions from all category winners  
  • All winners will be revealed at a live Gala Lunch at the Kings Fund on 2nd July  

TALiNT Partners has today announced finalists for the 2021 Talent Tech Star Awards, which shine a spotlight on the full spectrum of HR and Recruitment technology solutions for employers, recruiters, candidates and contractors.

“All 35 finalists for the TIARA Talent Tech Star Awards have been shortlisted in 13 highly competitive categories, from Workforce Solution of the Year to the Innovation Award,” said Alex Evans, Programme Director of TALiNT Partners. “Whilst challenging for everyone, the last 12 months have provided the perfect opportunity to demonstrate the value and impact of their solutions during a time of accelerated digital transformation and the evolution of work. 

 “The TIARAs are distinguished by the rigour of its judging process and the quality of its judging panel,” he added. “A wide range of HR and RecTech have been assessed through five key metrics: employee excellence; innovation; client service; business growth; and purpose.”    

Finalist entries will now be scored by an independent panel of expert judges drawn from HR, Recruitment, Compliance, Investment and Procurement to determine a winner in each award category. All judges will convene to debate and choose the overall Champion of Champions.

This year’s Chair of Judges is Martin McCourt, the former Dyson CEO who is now Chairman and Non Executive Director of companies including Tharsus, Weber, HeadBox, Lightfoot, and FreeFlow Technologies.

“Last winners Talent Tech Star Awards were championing transformation in different parts of the talent ecosystem and showing the impact of technology on everything from candidate experience to learning, onboarding and workforce management,” he said. “As a TIARA judge and investor, I’m looking for big ideas from great leadership and management teams who are achieving great things. With such a strong shortlist, this year’s winners will inspire others to aspire to greater ambition and impact. I look forward to celebrating with them in July.”

New accolades for 2021 include the Talent Tech Scale-Up Award, The D&I Solution of the Year, and the Talent Tech Leader of the Year, sponsored by Optima Corporate Finance. Optima founder Philip Ellis re-joins the judging panel. “It’s great to see so many of last year’s winners defending their title this year against some very strong new contenders,” he said. “I’m excited to see who triumphs in the Talent Tech Scale-Up and Leader of the Year categories and debating this year’s Champion of Champions.”

The Talent Tech Star Awards also recognise tech solutions offered by umbrella companies.  Phil Pluck, CEO of the FCSA joins the TIARA judging panel to review the Workforce, Contractor and Compliance award categories.

Three recruitment companies have won prestigious Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, which recognise outstanding performance in international trade, innovation, and sustainable development.

This year marks the 55th Anniversary of the Queen’s award, which was originally established by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh as Her Majesty’s Awards in 1965 and subsequently led to the creation of the Queen’s Award to Industry. The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are made each year by the Queen and are awarded on the recommendation of the Prime Minister following a rigorous application process.

Specialist ICT Recruitment & Project Solutions Consultancy LA International won the Queen’s Award for International Trade for outstanding continuous growth in overseas sales over the last six years. This is its second Queen’s Award, having previously won it in 2015. “I am delighted and honoured that LA International has again received this internationally recognised and highly sought after award for a second consecutive 5 year term in recognition of our contribution to flying the flag of British enterprise,” said Founder, Chairman & CEO Paul Lukic.

Temp, perm and RPO specialist recruiter nGAGE also won a Queen’s Award for overseas growth, with international sales increasing year on year from £681,000 in 2015 to £91,999,336 in 2020, driven mainly by the US and Northern Europe. “We are delighted and honoured to be receiving the Queen’s Award for Enterprise and to be recognised as one of the best UK companies to be operating successfully on the global stage,” said Tim Cook, CEO of nGAGE.

Specialist audio and entertainment technology recruiter Interfacio was the third agency recognised out of 205 companies – also for sustained international growth between 2014 and 2020. With North America, Europe and APAC now representing over 80% of the company’s business, it added a specialist Research and Development Engineering capability to focus on critical engineering hiring which has strengthened its presence in Asia Pacific (which now makes up one fifth of its non-UK business).

“Recruiting in international markets requires experience, expertise, and high sensitivity to differences in communication and business cultures,” said founder and Managing Director Richard Wear. “Recent search project successes for clients in Norway, Denmark, Austria, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Russia, China, Canada and the US illustrate the depth and strength of the capability we now have internationally.”

Winning with awards

The next webinar in TALiNT Partner’s PointSix programme of events for agency, talent solution and HR Tech leaders will offer practical insights on why and how to win industry and business awards from expert awards consultant Donna O’Toole, founder of August Awards & Recognition.

“Donna has an unrivalled success rate for prestigious accolades like the Queen’s Awards and the Queen’s Honours List and we’re delighted that she will bring her expertise to PointSix,” said Alex Evans, Programme Director of TALiNT Partners and former head of the National Business Awards, who will also offer insight on how to win TIARA awards and maximise recognition to a targeted audience of HR leaders.

“We will share top tips for choosing and winning the right awards to support a range of objectives, from retaining talent and winning new business to attracting investors and building personal profile as an industry champion and media commentator.”
