- The second stage includes phone and/or in-person interviews conducted by the judges with the HR department and those stakeholders such as HR department attorneys, accountants, benefit providers, placement and staffing agencies or consultants, who would be able to give relevant feedback on the application submitted. This only applies to the HR Department Award; there are no interviews with the Excellence Award Applications.
