Deadline for online Submission of Nomination: 30 November, 2017  


1) We welcome you to submit the names of firms and other entities you believe should be considered for the relevant award categories. There is no limit to the number of nominations you make and there are no costs involved in putting forward the nominations. Nominations should be submitted (ideally by the subject Company) directly via our online Nomination form here:

2) Here are some tips/suggestions for getting the Jury's attention:

Be precise and concise. Short and compelling usually trumps long-and-winding.

Numbers can often tell a compelling story: growth, percentage changes, market share, etc.

Tell a good story. Emotions, case-studies, and real examples conjur up images in our brains that work wonders.

Avoid the “Corporate-speak” and jargon that puts the Jury to sleep and only shows that you are not original and unique.

While you may prefer to "outsource" the Nomination form to a PR agency or 3rd party, that is usually a mistake. You know your company best and top management will be best-positioned to present compelling evidence to win your Category.

3) After the Deadline for submitting Nominations, we will send all Nominations to our Jury Members (who are bound by confidentiality and will not further distribute). The Jury then has about 2 weeks to review and rank all Nominations. Based on the Rankings, we generate the "Short-List".

4) "Short-List": The "Short-List" of Awards Finalists will be generated from submitted Nominations - after being vetted by the Jury - and will be announced on 3 January 2018 (one month before the Awards Gala).

5) Jury Voting. On 31st January, 2018 (one night before the Awards Gala), the Jury will meet and vote on the final Nominations, with winners to be announced at the 1st February CEE Shared Services And Outsourcing Awards Gala.

Additional information:

  • In 2017, we had 177 Companies, Cities, and Individuals who submitted Nominations.

  • PR/Social Media: All Short-Listed companies will be widely-promoted via multiple media channels, including social media (LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter).

    Winners have major promotional opportunities, which can have direct impact on Recruitment, Retention, Employer Branding, and Client-facing business development.

  • Submission of Nominations and Winning has zero connection to sponsorship or even attendance.
