Feedback Sessions

Feedback sessions are the most important part of the ARA Awards educative process. Along with the ARA benchmarking approach to assessment, the availability of constructive feedback differentiates ARA from most other forms of Awards.

A feedback session is an intensive two-way discussion of your annual report with an ARA representative who will have carried out an in-depth review of your report and be well prepared to discuss its strengths and any weaknesses. Advice based on the ARA Criteria will be provided to help you prepare your next report.

A feedback session may be provided on your entire report or in one of the Special Award categories, namely sustainability, governance, work health and safety, integrated reporting, online reporting or communication.

Feedback sessions are available from the time entrants have been advised their results in confidence in April-May through to late July.

  • They may be held face-to-face during the annual Seminar on Reporting - by appointment.
  • A feedback session may be arranged either before or after the ARA Seminar at a time and place that is mutually convenient to the ARA adjudicator and the organisation - or by teleconference
  • Please note that ARA adjudicators are senior professional people who volunteer their time to support ARA. Feedback appointments have to arranged to fit with their work commitments.

A booking form will be posted on the ARA website in April 2018.
It is advisable to book early to avoid disappointment.

Feedback sessions are exclusively for Award entrants. The session may be attended by up to three (3) people from your organisation.
