Launching the ABP Workforce Experience Awards
Celebrating Excellence in Business Psychology
The ABP Workforce Experience Awards Programme offers a unique and distinctive platform for celebrating excellence in Business Psychology.
Whilst many awards programmes exist in the field of Human Resources generally, and in various psychological disciplines, the ABP Awards focus directly on demonstrating the commercial and practical value of Business Psychology to organisations.
These Awards have been created to showcase how organisations enhance their workforce’s experiences through being, “… informed by a real understanding of the science that shapes the inner behaviours, motivations, and learning of the people [they] employ.”
Why Submit an Entry to the ABP Workforce Experience Awards?
Being short-listed for or winning a Workforce Experience Award will demonstrate your commitment to informed practice that improves workforce experiences. All Finalists will be announced by the ABP and our media partners and entitled to display the appropriate symbol of their success (i.e. the ABP Workforce Experience Awards logo).
It is also an opportunity to:
- Demonstrate distinctive achievements before a panel of industry leaders and workforce experience professionals
- Gain recognition for taking action to improve organisations through people
- Showcase your services, gain credibility and raise your profile within the industry
- Contribute to setting standards for best practice
- Benchmark and motivate best practice within your team
- Add to the reputation of HR and Business Psychology practitioners as an indispensable contributor to organisational success

You will learn the most important things you need to know when entering the ABP Workforce Experience Awards (which categories are most competitive, what judges are looking for and top tips in writing and evidencing your entry).
You will also be taught loads of advanced award entry writing and evidencing techniques in the context of the stories you are planning on entering. Plus you get to "be an ABP Workforce Experience Awards judge" which helps you understand what goes through the mind of the person reading your entry!.
