About the awards page


The #HRExcellenceAwards story

The awards show was first established in 2012 to provide an incubator platform for HR teams to showcase their HR strategies and initiatives. Over the years, the show has evolved to become the region’s go-to benchmarking platform across industries.

Fundamentally, the ideology underpinning the awards remains the same: Honouring best-in-class HR teams and individuals for their spectacular work executed across the entire HR function. It aims to bring together talented HR professionals as one force to champion the way forward.

This is also the region’s only HR awards that is peer-reviewed by a jury of esteemed HR practitioners.

2019 saw our biggest gala night with over 500 attendees and more than 50 unique companies participating. While the numbers speak for themselves, this year we will dive deeper into the quality of work put forth to the esteemed jury and narrow down Malaysia’s most commendable teams- so start preparing your entries early!
