In 2018, I was invited to judge at the UK Employee Experience Awards (fits my interest & expertise). As a rookie, I found the process to be rather daunting – I felt a great weight of responsibility to do the right thing by all those involved.
I must say that I didn’t fully appreciate what a logistical challenge it is to put on an annual event. Whilst Awards International seemed to do it very well overall, I noted some areas for improvement. When I met with Awards International, to discuss my observations & concerns, I got to experience a genuine openness to feedback & a commitment to improving the quality of the awards process. I am currently judging in my third awards & have already noticed some process refinements.
Awards International is about to launch The Judge Club which enables their judges to further improve their quality of judging, support their development, grow their networks & experience innovation & best practice in winning organisations.
When I was invited to join the Judge Club Advisory Board, I didn’t hesitate. It is a great privilege to be part of a team of professionals committed to continuous improvement. I would recommend anyone to join The Judge Club if you get the opportunity.
