Our judging process ensures credibility and enhances prestige for all those recognised. AIDCA’s stellar judging team, which this year includes senior HR Leaders, conducts an initial shortlist of all entries to identify finalists.

Entries in each category will be judged by a panel of recruitment industry chairmen, senior talent leaders, HR professionals and advisers. The judging panel will then cast their final judgement based on a varied criteria including business performance, longevity, business growth (either sustained or rapid), alongside any significant innovations or testimonials from colleagues or stakeholders, who are celebrated at the AIDCA Gala Dinner.


Gathering Nomination Forms

In the first stage, all the nomination forms are gathered at the main collection center where names and acts of goodness are recorded and multiple nominations for the same person are effectively compiled as one entry.



In the second stage, entries are shortlisted based on predetermined criteria.



In the third stage those shortlisted nominations are scrutinised for relevance and credibility by the Review Committee. Accordingly, a detailed report is prepared for each shortlisted nomination.



The fourth and final stage of the selection process involves the Higher Review Committee. Comprising of leading African dignitaries, senior HR Leaders and industry directors, this committee further scrutinises the shortlisted nominees and finally decides on the recipients.
