Human Resources Excellence Recognition

The success of North America’s airports depends heavily on the people that service them, and to stay competitive, Human Resources management plays a vital role in the development of the airport industry. With a vision to enhance the HR management in the region and to help airports in managing their most valuable asset of airport business, the ACI-NA HR Committee was established in 2007. Since its inception, the committee has addressed many timely and important HR subjects through different workshops and best practice sharing to promote professional excellence in HR management.

The ACI-NA HR Excellence Recognition Program is established with the objective to acknowledge airports’ outstanding achievements in HR management, to recognize the contribution of HR management to the successful airport business, and to share best practices in airport management.
