Now in its fourth year, the Workforce Game Changers award competition is designed to recognize the next generation of workplace leaders, under the age of 40, who have made a significant impact on the HR function. Nominees were considered based on their professional accomplishments and personal achievements, and the winners were selected by the senior writers and editors of Workforce.
