Judges’ comments on the two entries

“A fantastic example of not having to come up with a new trend each time, but getting solid data on existing trends that can help HR managers do a better job with their existing workload. This is Crown taking it up one notch in their consulting work. The topic of this survey is exactly what is on the minds of HR right now. Well done.” — Thought Leadership — Best Survey or Research Study of the Year
