Brandon Hall Group Launches 21st annual HCM Excellence Awards Program


Brandon Hall Group is pleased to announce that the 2015 HCM Excellence Awards are now open to receive applications. We have added many new categories that fall under the Human Capital Management practice areas, so we decided to rename our program the HCM Excellence Awards. The modifications and new category additions were prompted by the feedback we received from our clients.
