Irish HR Awards

Irish HR Awards

The winners of the Irish HR Awards 2018 were recently announced (6th December 2018) at the Aviva Stadium - Dublin.

When Legal-Island was founded back in 1998, we trained HR professionals in employment law and workplace compliance issues - 20 years later, that hasn't changed. We understand that training is just the beginning of the journey and now we want to recognise the excellent contribution you and your HR team make to the success of your organisation.
