About the Apollo Awards
History & Evolution
The Helios HR Apollo Awards was a 10-year program that recognized Greater Washington leaders for innovative talent development initiatives.
Launched in 2007, this program served a void in our community for over a decade to celebrate leaders who were focused on employee development and growth. With our nation facing an ever-growing skills gap, these employers focused on creating cultures of intention to engage, develop, and retain top talent.
The awards generated more than 500 leaders in attendance who wanted to learn next practices to attract and retain exceptional people. Helios HR had the honor to shed visibility into these programs from hundreds of organizations, ranging from small boutique firms to some of the largest organizations worldwide. Through this program, our community gained valuable insight, met amazing colleagues, and had a ton of fun over the 10 years the program was held.
It was through the Helios Apollo Awards that we heard feedback on ways we could further serve our industry and the community we’ve built. HR and business leaders were seeking out ways to collaborate on how to move their businesses forward through talent management. In response to these requests, after the 10th season, Helios HR evolved our programming to launch the Human Capital Impact Forums.
We'd love for you to join us at a future Human Capital Impact Forum!
