 Winners of the 2021 TIARA Talent Acquisition Awards were revealed at a Gala Dinner for 160 guests at the IET in London on the 22nd of September. The event was attended by Talent Acquisition, HR and business leaders from some of the UK’s leading employers.

“The TIARA Talent Acquisition Awards are the latest addition to TALiNT Partners’ highly respected TIARA awards programme,” commented Ken Brotherston, co-host of the Awards and Managing Director at TALiNT Partners.

“After 18 months of turmoil, it was amazing to see the examples of innovation, resilience, business partnership and agility delivered by our finalists this year, and we were delighted to be able to recognize that work through the TIARA Talent Acquisition Awards,” added Debra Sparshott, co-host of the Awards and Programme Director at TALiNT Partners. 

The TIARAs are recognised for the rigour of the process and the quality of the judging panel and are seen as a genuine and meaningful accolade for winners. An impressive and influential panel of judges from companies including LinkedIn, Nestle, Jaguar Land Rover, Facebook, MSCI Inc as well as wider business leaders such as Lord Chris Holmes, deputy Chair of Channel 4, and the broadcaster and journalist Trevor Phillips came together to discuss each entry and decide the winners.

“Our judges’ deliberations were balanced, lively, occasionally controversial but always insightful and thoughtful. Their range of experience brought an amazing diversity of different perspectives,” commented Ken Brotherston.

Greene King was the biggest winner this year, winning the Lorien Creativity in Talent Acquisition Award, Early Career Pioneer Award, and the overall winner’s winner trophy – the TA Team of the Year.

“In deciding this year’s TA Team of the Year Winner, we wanted to see a team who had moved the needle, raised standards and taken a risk. After the last 18 months, we cannot ignore the human element, and Greene King approached their work in a genuine and authentic way and truly is a beacon for the industry,” said Chris Holmes, Judge and Deputy Chair, Channel 4. He also spoke powerfully about the importance of ‘looking after the talent who look after the talent’, recognising the many challenges employers have faced during the pandemic and the critical role TA teams have played across so many industries.
