HRForecast – National Winner for innovation in Germany at the European Business Award 2017 / 2018

HRForecast was named one of 11 National Winners from 180 businesses representing the Ones to Watch in Germany at an exclusive event held at the British Ambassador’s residence in Berlin for The European Business Awards, Europe’s largest business competition, sponsored by RSM.


HRForecast was chosen by a panel of independent judges including senior business leaders, politicians and academics as the best in their country in the Awards’ category of Innovation, and they will now go on to represent their country in this category in the final stage of the competition.


Gregor Schmidt, Chief Markets Officer said: “We work with our clients to support their growth ambitions, at home and abroad. The exceptional German business leaders that we celebrated last night have demonstrated strength and commercial excellence in their field, backed by entrepreneurialism and innovation. As a champion of middle market businesses, we are proud to partner with the European Business Awards and we wish the German National Winners continued success and the best of luck in the final stage.”


The National Winners from each country will face further judging in their chosen category, and the final Category Winners will be announced at the European Business Awards Gala Final in Warsaw, Poland in May 2018.


Separately HRForecast is also competing in a public vote to be named ‘European Public Champion’ at the Gala Final. Last year the public vote generated almost 250,000 votes. To view our video and vote for us, go to:
