Pharma and MedTech companies secure finalist positions in Australian HR Awards

Health Industry Hub | July 20, 2020 |

The finalists have been announced for the Australian HR Awards.

The Australian HR Awards recognise excellence in human resources and people leadership across Australian organisations.

Australian Business Lawyers & Advisors has also sponsored the Australian HR Champion (CEO) of the Year category, which recognises forward-thinking Australian CEOs who have people and culture at the heart of their strategy-making.

“Now, more than ever, it is a critical time to support our HR professionals during one of the toughest years businesses will ever face,” said ABLA’s CEO and director Nigel Ward.

“The pandemic presents unique challenges to the HR community. Whether this comes through supporting executives and CEOs simply cope, to reorganising the workforce, stand downs and for some, temporarily up-scaling. It’s our honour to be leading the acknowledgment for excellence in the field of HR. For some the awards will be much needed good news, while for others, acknowledgement of the toughest year of their career.”

“Let’s share the achievements of the HR profession and work together to rebuild businesses when this passes,” he said. 

The Pharma and MedTech finalists for the Australian HR Awards for 2020 are below.
