The 2015 Australian HR Awards will be held on Friday 7 August in Sydney and for the third successive year Future Knowledge is a sponsor of this prestigious event.  Bringing together the Who’s Who of HR in Australia, the event showcases the achievements of individuals and teams across a range of categories and will be hosted by TV host Larry Emdur at Sydney’s The Star venue.

This year, Future Knowledge has focused our sponsorship on the “Best Use of Technology” category and I look forward to the honour of announcing the winners in what appears to be a hotly-contested category.  Technology is at the heart of business transformation in organisations as the rapid transition to the digital economy disrupts business models and drives new ways of organising our workforces.  As a leading consultancy supporting HR teams to drive innovation and facilitate the future of work, it is only natural for FK to be associated with the outstanding achievements of the nominated organisations for this year’s award.

I love attending this event and seeing the HR industry acknowledge the great work that we do that so often is invisible.  Often a thankless role, and one that is consistently undervalued, this night-of-nights is always a great way to see the worth of what we bring to the table day in and day out.

If you’re attending the event, I look forward to catching up.  If not, be sure to follow the FK team on Twitter and Periscope – @FutureKnowledge – and keep tabs on the happenings on the night.
