This year's CIPD People Management Awards were held as a digital ceremony. 


As well as announcing our all important winners and high commendations, we showcased some of the amazing #HRtogether stories that people professionals have shared with us throughout the pandemic. Our profession has risen to the enormous challenges of COVID-19 and we couldn’t be prouder to recognise your work.
