2013 HR Department of the Year Awards Recap

HRawardAs you may know, the 2013 Delaware Valley HR Department of the Year Awards Dinner and Presentations  was held on Thursday, November 13th at the Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia. The event went off without a hitch and we are so thankful to the 400+ guests who came out and joined us. Joe Conklin was the event’s emcee and he did a great job entertaining the attendees. The evening began with networking accompanied by cocktails and hors d’ oeuvres, and was followed by the official welcome and recognition of the attendees. Dinner and desserts followed and led into the awards ceremony and announcement of the winners, and the night concluded with a celebratory champagne toast. The HR Department of the Year Winners are as follows: Hamilton Lane (1-8 employees), PJM Interconnection (9-23 Employees), McNeil Consumer Healthcare (24-50 Employees), and NRG Energy (50+ Employees). You can see the rest of the winners here. Here are some of the nice things attendees had to say about the event:

“The awards moved at a good pace. The entire evening was well planned and did not drag at any one point. Very well orchestrated.”

“I enjoyed the evening. The food and ambiance were excellent and I like the idea of recognizing HR teams and individuals.”

“Great opportunity for networking.”

Also, be sure to stay tuned for photos and videos from the event coming soon. Thank you so much for reading and again to those who attended. We hope to see you at next year’s HR Department of the Year Awards!

Want to know why 90% of the NJ, NY, DE and PA companies who work with us for their HR staffing needs (including Merck, Rutgers, PNC Bank, Daimer-Chrysler, Pfizer, SAP America and 150+ others) either re-hire our firm or refer us? We specialize exclusively in the Direct-Hire and Contract Placement of Human Resources Professionals including EVP of HR, VP of HR, Human Resources Manager, Compensation Manager, HR Generalist, Benefits Manager & Training Managers. The Rosen Group is one of very few firms in the NJ, NY, PA, and DE area that focuses on one, single area all day, every day – Recruiting and assessing HR talent! Our low-volume (2-3 positions filled per week, 8-12 per month and 100 per year), highly-consultative “super-niche” approach means that I will send you the right candidates – the first time (and typically within 1 week). For example 98% of our HR contractors complete their assignments, 50% are extended and 30% to 40% receive permanent offers! We’re giving Fortune 500 companies, SMBs and nonprofit organizations access to the best and brightest HR candidates. We have a database of thousands of HR executives with a wide range of experience, expertise and talent at all levels all the way up to the VP HR level. Plus we use social media and employment branding strategies to get your opportunities in front of top candidates. We're committed to the professional growth and development of the HR executives that we place for clients. That’s why I founded the HR Executive Alliance and the Talent Acquisition Leadership Alliance and have created the HR Department of the Year Awards. Maybe this is why the Rosen Group is one of the Inc 500 Fastest Growing Companies (Number 147!) – and why 90% of our clients refers us or rehire us.
