2012 Game Changers – Nomination deadline has been EXTENDED – Monday, September 10th!

Workforce is pleased to announce its second annual Game Changers awards. This award recognizes the next generation of innovative, dynamic leaders to watch in human resources and workplace management.

We are seeking nominations of high-potential people under the age of 40 who already are making their mark. They can be HR professionals, consultants, academics, technology experts or members of companies that develop HR products and services. Professional accomplishments are key, but community service and other achievements will also be considered.

This is an excellent opportunity for you to publicly recognize your employees or colleagues. (We also will accept self-nominations as long as they are accompanied by a letter of recommendation from an executive in your organization or with whom you have previously worked.)

Winners will receive a Game Changers award and be profiled in Workforce Management magazine and on In addition, winners will join a community of game changers with whom they can network and be tapped to provide their point of view on timely HR or workplace topics.

It is important that you state a clear, business-oriented reason for the nomination and that the nominee will still be under the age of 40 as of December 1, 2012.

The deadline for nominations has been EXTENDED to midnight CT on September 10, 2012. Entries will be judged by Workforce’s senior editors and writers. The 2012 Game Changers will be announced and profiled in the December issue of Workforce Management and on in early December.

You can submit your nomination form and supporting documents either online or by mail.
