The LearnX Impact Awards is an international awards program that recognises multiple fields within talent management across the corporate, education and public-service sectors. Each year the awards uncover incredible projects and solutions that deliver best practices and business value. We then share many of these experiences with the wider community during the LearnX Live! Summit & Awards Show. Our objective is also to shine a light on the talented teams involved in these works and the enterprises that support them.

WINNERS ANNOUNCED & PUBLICISED

WHO CAN ENTER?
The awards are open to individuals, teams and enterprises from the corporate, education and public-service sectors worldwide, that have implemented or released a project/solution relating to the development and management of enterprise talent since January 2015.
Vendors may enter with, or on behalf of a client, with prior endorsement from the client.
A ‘team’ is defined as being a group that’s come together for the specific purpose of undertaking and completing a project. The team can be from within one enterprise or can have come together from multiple enterprises.
You can enter one or multiple awards. You can use the same project or solution in order to enter various award categories but the specified criteria in each award must be met, and each category is deemed a separate entry. A separate application needs to be completed for each entry, along with payment. If the judges assess that your entry aligns better to another category, you will be contacted to discuss options.
JUDGING & CONFIDENTIALITY
Judges are remunerated for their services, to support the highest standard of adjudicating. They are explicitly trained in the awards-adjudicating processes and systems, and are selected on their professional expertise and knowledge of modern people and performance management practices. Judges are selected through a nomination process. To be accepted for initial evaluation a person must have been nominated by three individuals from separate organisations. Self-nominations are not accepted. Nominations for potential judges need to address, in 150 words or less, the nominee’s credentials for judging, in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
There are no vendors on the judging panels or awards management team. The quality of the LearnX Impact Awards is such that you may need to include confidential information as part of your entry. The LearnX Foundation guarantees that all information supplied will be restricted to the awards management team and judges, and remain strictly confidential. Judges’ decisions are final and no correspondence will be entered into post/prior judging.
AWARDS SCORECARD SYSTEM
