The APSCo Australia Awards for Excellence are part of APSCo’s global Awards program, celebrated also across the United Kingdom and Germany. 

 The Awards are committed to identifying, promoting and celebrating best practice and excellence in the recruitment and professional staffing sector, and recognise businesses who demonstrate and support the professional standards that APSCo embodies. In 2020, we are thrilled to be able to open our Awards for Excellence to recognise and celebrate the significant achievements of our industry in a year that's been like no other.

In 2020, the APSCo Australia Awards for Excellence winners will be widely recognised with a targeted campaign to promote and profile our winners.

In what is a first for the recruitment sector, the 2020 APSCo Awards for Excellence will embark on a journey to educate employers about the value our industry offers and highlight the calibre of Members and Affiliate Members we represent.

As part of our mission to further drive the profession and clearly articulate to HR leaders and corporate hiring managers the significance of the APSCo badge of quality, we've teamed up with the Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI) to deliver a digital and print media campaign to celebrate and recognise the APSCo Awards for Excellence.

The media campaign will feature:

  • articles in AHRI's HRM e-newsletters and website showcasing the shortlisted companies, plus

  • a 4 page editorial feature in HRM magazine, Australia's leading print magazine for HR professionals, featuring all the Award winners.

    Overall, the APSCo Awards for Excellence shortlist and winners will reach an audience in excess of 50,000 recruitment and HR professionals.
