Judging

The TiARAs are distinguished by the rigour of its judging – and the quality of its feedback

Our three-stage judging process ensures credibility and enhances prestige for all those recognised.

TALiNT’s senior team conducts an initial shortlist of all entries to identify finalists who are announced in July. Finalist entries in each category go to a second round of judging by a panel of over 30 recruitment industry chairmen, senior talent leaders, and advisers. All judges attend an event in September to determine the overall winners in each category, who are announced at the TIARA Gala Dinner in October.

All finalists receive feedback based on comments from judges for each of their shortlisted award entries.

“This is very useful feedback and will help us build next year’s entries.”
