Program Information

If you are new to this program, you will need to create a profile before submitting an entry. Your profile will track entries year after year. If you are returning, please sign into your existing profile. If you do not remember your password, simply click the forgot password link to reset.

Access the portal for the HCM program here.

Pro tip: create a profile using a distribution email, such as bhgawards@companyname.com so that your team retains access in the event that the original submitter is no longer with the company or has transitioned roles.

You may download the submission form associated with each category below AND within the submission portal.

Once your profile is created, you may begin a new application and follow the instructions for submitting both a single application and/or multiple applications.

Awards are judged on the following criteria: fit the needs of the organization, design of the program, delivery of the program, measurable benefits, and overall impact.

Each element is worth 6 points, for a total of 30 points. Awards are based on total points.

That means some categories may have more awards than others. Some categories may not have any award winners if the entries don’t earn enough points.

Notifications will be sent to the primary email on your submission portal profile. (Please note that you no longer need to create a new login year after year. You may now create a profile to track submissions year after year, in this program)
