Simon, Talia and Hannah at the British HR Awards

The kind of news we love to announce: Connectr have been crowned as the winner of ‘Innovation of the Year’ at the British HR Awards 2022.

The Awards discover and celebrate the organisations and individuals that are truly passionate about delivering a world-class people experience. And that’s exactly what Connectr is all about. We’re delighted to have been recognised as a changemaker in the HR tech space – and we’re just getting started.

Connectr’s platform is designed to innovate every corner of our partners’ candidate and employee strategy. Our mentoring technology supports our partners to engage, hire, progress and retain the best people through creating a culture where everyone is included. Connectr proudly stood out above over 100 entries from UK-wide organisations, from start-ups to global giants and everything in between.

Held at Bounce Farringdon in London, not only did Simon, Talia and Hannah show off their winning cheesy grins but also enjoyed ping-pong, pizza and prosecco. We don’t think it gets much better than that.

Connectr’s impact was assessed by a prestigious judging panel:

  • Mel Willsmore, People Director at Strike
  • Perry Timms, Chief Energy Officer at People and Transformational HR
  • Kelly Stokes, HR Director at Aldi UK
  • Hannah Reid, People Director at Apple
  • Melanie Punch, Head of UK Careers at Investec
  • Neil Piper, Chief People Officer at KFC
  • Daniel Kasmir, Chief People and Procurement Officer at TalkTalk
  • Nate Harwood, Founder at New Possible

“I am absolutely delighted that Connectr has won Innovation of the Year at the British HR Awards. This is a huge recognition of our mentoring platform and our team behind the software. At Connectr, we believe in delivering technology to create meaningful connections, at scale, and being recognised as a changemaker in the HR tech space defines our mission perfectly – to consistently innovate and optimise the candidate and employee experience for people of all backgrounds through agile and purposeful mentoring.”
