The shortlists for the 2018 HR in Hospitality Awards have been announced and we are once again thrilled to be sponsoring the HR Rising Star Award, spotlighting emerging talent within our wonderful industry with the winner of the Rising Star award receiving a scholarship for their career development from Caterer.com.

“They are on a path where their contribution to their HR team is really making a difference,” explains Esther O’ Halloran, Chair of HR in Hospitality. “This person may be in any role within the team, but you can see their potential through their skills, the way they work and the results they are achieving.” Entrants can self-nominate or be entered by their organisation. Ideally, they need to have worked in HR for at least two years but not necessarily in their current position within the team. Testimonial statements from the HR Director or other managers can be submitted in support of this entry. The winner of this award will also receive the Caterer.com scholarship to use towards developing their personal HR training or qualifications.

In finding a suitable winner, judges take into account how the nominee contributed to the success of the performance of the HR department, what has been the nominee’s personal development plan, achievements in their career so far and what will be the benefit to them and the organisation in winning this award.

Esther says that the HR in Hospitality Rising Star Award is of enormous benefit to the winner. “It provides recognition from peers and industry colleagues, it’s a real confidence boost and it’s a great opportunity to invest in personal development. We hope that winning the award will encourage loyalty to remain and develop a career in hospitality.”

This year’s nominees for the HR in Hospitality Rising Star Awards are:

  • Alessandro Giovanetto (Red Carnation Hotels)
  • Dan Grantham (Yo Sushi)
  • Laura Gonzalez (Grosvenor House Suites)
