Employer Brand Leader of the Year Awards 2022

Updated: Nov 6, 2022

Brett Minchington, Founder of World Employer Branding Day, has announced the launch of the 2022 Employer Brand Leader of the Year Awards to be presented at World Employer Branding Day 2022 which returns to an in-person event in Lisbon from 12-14 October.

"It's been more than two years since the onset of the pandemic and employer brand leaders around the world have played an instrumental role in supporting their people in navigating their way through the chaos and disruptions of the pandemic. More recently we have witnessed the heroic efforts of employer brand leaders to support their people as a result of the war in Ukraine—the aim of the 2022 awards is to recognise and acknowledge the work of these employer brand leaders," Minchington said.

The awards were last held in 2020 and the previous winners, Jennifer O'Brien (Global Leader), Director, Global Talent Attraction & Experience Director at Booz Allen Hamilton and Tanya Cortegaca (Emerging Leader), Head of Global Employer Branding at Thales demonstrated the outstanding calibre of employer brand leadership that exists in industry. These leaders have continued to set new standards since winning their awards in 2020.

Kantar, the world's leading data, insights and consulting company continues their long term partnership of the The Global Leader Award.

Katarina Önell, Client Director said, "Kantar is excited to be presenting the award in-person again in 2022. The previous winners of the award since 2017 have set a new benchmark for Employer Brand Leadership at a global level and we're proud to continue our support of this highly regarded industry award."

The Emerging Leader of the Year Award is supported by Employer Branding College, providers of the the world's leading Employer Brand Leadership Certification which has been achieved by Executive, senior and mid-level leaders in more than 70 countries since 2011. Global Programs Director, Andrea Fielding said, "Each year the number of nominees for this award is increasing and the quality of the nominations for the Emerging Leaders Award shows the depth of employer brand leadership talent emerging around the world.
