Behind every communicator’s efforts to retain, attract, inform and support employees is a dedicated and hard-working human resource professional.

Ragan’s Platinum HR Awards recognize these often unsung people leaders, along with the programs they champion and the products they use to achieve outstanding HR results.

All finalists will be recognized — and category winners will be announced — during a special awards luncheon at Ragan’s Workplace Wellness Conference in Chicago on Aug. 17.

Congratulations to all nominees and finalists.
