Nominate Button (1)How to complete the submission

Once you nominate someone for a Talent Warrior Award, Glassdoor will email the nominee letting them know. We’ll ask them to complete a brief online submission form in which we ask for some insight into their talent acquisition best practices and what makes them a true Talent Warrior. Once they complete this submission form, nominees are officially in the running.

When is the deadline?

Submissions must be complete by Friday August 1, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. PT.

How will the winners be selected?

The winners will be chosen by the Talent Warriors Judges Panel, which includes Glassdoor’s internal Talent Warrior, Will Staney, along with 2013 Talent Warrior winners including:

Arie Ball, VP Talent Acquisition at Sodexo, 2013 Talent Warrior
