A journey through #HRExcellenceAwards

Honouring the best-in class HR teams, and individuals, for their spectacular work executed across the entire HR function, the awards show 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 700 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 Asia’s most commendable teams.

Add your name to HR Excellence Awards’s hall of fame:

Create a buzz around your deserving work

Blowing your own trumpet as some might say, but this is about giving yourself a pat on the back and recognising a job well done. Boost your team morale and prove your worth to the business.

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, the awards will push you to grow and nurture your team, for great employer branding. Be known as being part of an award-winning team or individual!

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

You have indeed weathered through all the storms. As you prepare your entries, 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. 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.
