Dear Members,

For over two decades the Pittsburgh Human Resources Association's (PHRA) Engaging Pittsburgh: Innovative People Practices Awards has recognized employees and employers from across the region who have demonstrated creativity in designing business practices.  These practices have significantly contributed to organizational and employee achievements. 
All our finalists this year have engaged in ways that have led to extraordinary effort and positive results within the workplace.  The workplace, as we all know, is changing, and critical skills, competencies, recruitment strategies and organizational design are changing along with it.  The evidence of that can be seen amongst the dynamic finalists we are recognized this year!

Congratulations to the 2023 Engaging Pittsburgh: Innovative People Practices Award winners!
