Eight companies crowned winners with 5 highly commended by panel of 15 judges  

Winners of the 2022 TIARA Talent Acquisition Awards were revealed at a Gala Dinner at the Montcalm Marble Arch in London last night, attended by Talent Acquisition, HR and business leaders from some of the UK’s leading employers.

Ken Brotherston, CEO at TALiNT Partners commented: “We are delighted to be celebrating the TIARA Talent Acquisition Awards for the second year. It is especially pleasing to see the variety of great entries from such a wide range of different organisations, demonstrating very clearly that there is no monopoly on creativity, agility, ingenuity, engagement and innovation.”

Debra Sparshott, co-host of the Awards and Head of Insight and Research at TALiNT Partners also commented: “Even before the pandemic, we felt it was important to take a broader view of where and how employers find talent and given the impact the pandemic has had on distributed workforces, it turns out this is more important than ever.  We are delighted to be able to recognise that work through the TIARA Talent Acquisition Awards.”

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 Jaguar Land Rover, Ocado and Sony 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.

Direct Line was the biggest winner this year, winning the Lorien Creativity in TA Award, the eArcu TA Operational Achievement and the overall winner’s trophy – the TA Team of the Year.

“In deciding this year’s TA Team of the Year Winner, the panel wanted to see a team who had moved the needle, raised standards and taken risks. They looked at several factors including: an ability to deliver innovation under pressure, a focus on DE&I, social mobility and community engagement.  Direct Line Group are worthy winners of this award,” said Declan Slattery, Chair of Global Advisory Board at TALiNT Partners.

TALiNT Partners today announced that the TIARA Talent Acquisition Awards Europe 2022 are now open for entries. 

Ken Brotherston, Chief Executive of TALiNT Partners made comment: “The 2021 TIARA Talent Acquisition Awards saw some incredible entries sharing their journeys through the challenges of the pandemic. It has been another truly remarkable year, and talent acquisition teams have had to be incredibly agile in responding to organisational and market changes, so we are delighted to have the opportunity to celebrate the fantastic work that Talent teams have delivered again this year.”

The TIARAs, renowned for excellence and innovation are now the biggest global awards series across the talent ecosystem and what sets them apart from other awards programmes is the rigorous judging process and that each finalist receives unique, detailed and confidential feedback from the judging panel, chaired by Lord Chris Holmes. This is something entrants deeply value as part of their TIARA experience.

The 10 Award categories offer recognition of excellence across all areas of talent acquisition, with a focus on critical resourcing activities that have driven transformation and organisational effectiveness.

Last year’s winners included Greene King, McDonald’s, Kraft Heinz, Essex County Council, Serco, North Yorkshire County Council, BBC, HSBC and L’Oréal. View last year’s winners and highly commended finalists here.

TALiNT Partners will capture some of the best and most innovative work TA teams have been doing and share this in the winners supplement of TALiNT International after the awards ceremony.

The TALiNT Partners Awards Platform makes the entry process straightforward in order that you can easily showcase your achievements through the tailored entry questions in each category.
