Culture Pioneers

HRZone launched the Culture Pioneers initiative last year to spread positivity and showcase the work of people practitioners dedicated to re-shaping company culture in response to the pandemic. 

Following the success of our first year, we have developed the initiative into an awards programme that will champion those in the HR and L&D professions who are people-centric in their approach to culture. The award categories for 2021 will be wellbeing, inclusion, learning and innovation.

Unlike other business culture awards programmes, Culture Pioneers celebrates those who lie at the heart of culture change – the people profession. Our mission is to raise the profile of HR and L&D teams and demonstrate their critical value to senior leaders and the wider organisation through showcasing their culture change successes.

Furthermore, unlike traditional awards programmes, Culture Pioneers does not simply focus on celebrating the so-called ‘best’. We’re looking for inspirational people and businesses that are committed to an ongoing journey to improve their culture.
