Frequently asked questions

Please get in touch with us if you have any questions about the 2021 Talent Intelligence Awards. Some frequently asked questions are answered below.

Who are the awards for?

The Talent Intelligence Awards celebrate the best of talent intelligence. The awards are for people and teams involved in talent intelligence, their managers, stakeholders and colleagues. Categories include awards for projects, individuals and teams. Nominations can be made from any geography and from any size of organisation.

What is the timeline for entering and judging?

The timeline for entering the talent intelligence awards and for announcing the winners is below:

Can I enter multiple categories?

Yes, and we’d encourage you to do so! Once you have completed one form, your company information should be carried over into new forms so you will only have to enter your nomination content into subsequent forms. If, during judging, we recognise that your nomination is applicable to another award then we may contact you to check that you’re happy for your nomination to be entered in another category.

Is there an awards ceremony?

Yes, there is an awards ceremony. It will be held on Thursday 16th December online. Once you have nominated (or been nominated!) we will invite you to register for the event. Guests are also welcome to attend the event and it’s free to come along. Registration in advance is a must.
