The largest HR marketing competition in the Czech Republic and Slovakia

Recruitment Academy, an educational company, awarded 9 prestigious Recruitment Academy Awards to both global multinationals as well as local/regional Czech and Slovak companies for projects in the areas of HR marketing, employer branding and recruitment implemented in 2023 and 2024. The award ceremony took place on Thursday, 30 May 2024 at the Jatka78 theatre in Prague.

The ninth edition of the competition attracted 75 companies and 130 projects, which competed in a total of 7 main categories. "Recruitment is not just about hiring employees, but above all about stories and creativity. I believe that this year's competition inspired many managers to do things differently," says José Kadlec, founder of Recruitment Academy. "During the evening, many debated the use of artificial intelligence in recruitment. Therefore, I expect that next year more companies will try creating career spots with the help of AI, for example," adds Kadlec.
