Raising a toast to your HR success story!

You’ve championed success stories all year long. Now it’s time to be recognised for them!

The HR Excellence Awards – the region’s most sought-after and prestigious HR programme – is returning for its eighth edition!

As we all start to recover from the impact of COVID-19, it’s time to celebrate and honour the incredible work HR did to support their organisations, people and stakeholders during one of the most difficult periods in recent memory.

This year, the awards will be recognising teams and individuals who are resilient in pushing the boundaries of people strategy, and achieving new heights in employee engagement, performance management, and more.

What better way to showcase your milestones and celebrate all that your HR team has achieved over the past year?

Build a legacy bigger than you can imagine

Nothing comes easy without hard work. Be recognised and credited for being the trailblazer that sets you apart from the rest.

Opening endless opportunities

A testament to your hard work, resilience and grit, participating in the awards will open endless opportunities to further grow and nurture your team, for great employer branding. Be known as being part of an award-winning team (or individual) and add it to your list of achievements!

Pause from the hustle and bustle to look back at your milestones

Wow! You have weathered through all the storms – internal restructuring, getting buy-in from management for budget approval, or even COVID-19 – and you have never shrugged your responsibilities as a business partner.

As you prepare your entries, take this time to regroup as a team and look back on your journey and achievements over the past year.

Inspire and lead through change

Dare to be different. It begins with leading with the right mindset as this will be the best source of motivation that will help redefine your team’s purpose, acknowledge the contributions of your team members and pave the path for greater heights.
