The Reward 300 2019 Gala Dinner has evolved to become The 10th Anniversary Reward 300 Gala Dinner & Awards.
In 2009, the Payroll Top 50 was launched to recognise the most influential individuals in the profession. Over the years, the remit of payroll has widened considerably. The function no longer focusses on technical tasks alone, but also strategic ones.
Therefore, the move into this wider space - known to be reward - has meant the make up of the index has also changed, and gradually become The Reward 300.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the index, and to mark this special occasion we have evolved the recognition element to award the leading light from each of the seven sections.
The Reward 300 sections
• 100 Payroll Leaders, including 25 International Specialists, sponsored by Cintra HR & Payroll
• 50 Reward Industry Luminaries
• 50 Leaders within Knowledge and Professional Services
• 25 Pension Professionals, sponsored by EQ Global
• 25 HR Leaders, sponsored by JGA Recruitment
• 25 Employee Benefits Experts
• 25 Employment Lawyers
These individual awards are for those who have gone above and beyond to help their peers, employees or employers, and have also advocated for the promotion of their profession in a way which educates and urges action to recognise the importance of their role.
So, who will be the 2019 winners?
The nominations for The Reward 300 2019 closed in March and the editorial team, in conjunction with a board of trusted advisors, have since carried out a consultation process and finalised the index.
Individuals who have successfully been included will be notified under embargo in April. In this email they will be asked if they would like to put themselves forward for the individual award relating to their profession. If so, they will be asked to write a 150-word nomination including three reasons as to why they are deserving.
A shortlist of these nominations will then be collated and judged by the editorial team and board of trusted advisors.
The celebratory evening revealing The Reward 300 2019 index, and seven individual winners, will take place on June 5th - this is the first evening of the Payroll & Reward Conference, headline sponsored by Western Union Business Solutions, at the Chelsea Harbour Hotel, London.
