ABOUT THE AWARDS

We believe in the power of the people profession and the reason for that is quite simple: organisations are powered by people and supported by people professionals – whether they are HR, L&D or line managers.

Furthering our commitment to champion better work and working lives across the Middle East, we launched the CIPD Middle East People Awards in 2019. Since then, with over 120 entries every year from the region’s leading employers, the Awards have become a yearly rendezvous for people professionals in the Middle East.

With every edition, we celebrate individuals, teams and organisations for their outstanding achievements in people management and development and take stock of the region’s progress towards professionalising the HR function.

Nominations for the 2022 Awards are now closed. Entries for 2023 will open in spring.
