2014 HR's Rising Stars Nomination Form


Deadline for Submissions: February 7, 2014

In its ninth annual competition, Human Resource Executive® magazine is, once again, looking for HR professionals near the top of their organization's human resource function who have demonstrated leadership in their current position, the ability to successfully launch significant HR initiatives and programs, and the ability to tackle major HR-related challenges.

To be considered, candidates must either be leading -- but not senior-most -- HR executives of their organizations or the heads of major HR disciplines -- staffing, training and development, benefits and compensation, etc.

They should have a minimum of four, but no more than 10, years of experience in HR or a related profession and one year of experience in their current organization.

Those presently in the senior-most HR position of an organization or operating company/unit do not qualify for consideration.

Nominations will be accepted from the candidate's supervisor (i.e., senior HR executive) or other executives or officers at a similar level of the organization or higher.

Consultants and those associated with supplier organizations, as well as colleagues and peers within the candidate's organization, are also invited to submit nominations; however, please note that nominations submitted by anyone other than the candidate's direct supervisor or senior executive in the organization must be accompanied by a letter of recommendation from that supervisor or senior executive.

Candidates may also nominate themselves, but, again, must separately submit a letter of recommendation from their supervisor (i.e., senior HR executive).

Recommendation letters should be e-mailed separately to hrecompetitions@lrp.com with "HR's Rising Stars Letter of Recommendation" in the subject line.

A panel of judges assembled by Human Resource Executive® will review the submissions and select the 2014 Rising Stars.

Winners will be recognized in an upcoming edition of Human Resource Executive®.
