Nominations now open for HRM Awards 2017

Open until October 3, 2016, HRM Asia invites all Singapore-based employers to submit their nomination entries for 22 categories in what are the most respected honours in the local HR community.

Singapore’s showpiece HR awards event, HRM Awards 2017, has been officially launched and is now open for nominations.

With the aim of supporting great HR and empowering HR teams from both major organisations and SMEs, HRM Asia is introducing four new awards categories, including “Best Workplace Culture and Engagement”, “Best HR Transformation Through Tech”, “Best Change Management Strategies” and “Best Next-Gen Opportunities and Development”.

As always, entries for the HRM Awards 2017 remain completely free of charge and are open to all Singapore-based employers from the private and public sectors until October 3, 2016. This includes MNCs, local companies, government agencies and SMEs.

“As Asia’s pre-eminent event for rewarding and celebrating the best and brightest in HR, these new categories are aligned with how dynamic and progressive the HR industry is,” said Emma Dean, Events Director, HRM Asia.

“With the current volatile business landscape and tight labour market, we believe it is important for the HRM Awards to not only recognise companies for their outstanding HR practices, but to also reflect the increasingly strategic role HR plays in businesses today.”

While the “Best Workplace Culture and Engagement” category recognises the character and personality of an organisation, the “Best HR Transformation through Tech” rewards a company’s transformation of an HR process through the use of technology to increase efficiency while addressing a workforce challenge.

In addition, the “Best Change Management Strategies” award recognises an organisation that has improved business performance by implementing an effective change strategy and the “Best Next-Gen Opportunities and Development” award acknowledges employment and experience opportunities for young adults and graduates within a company.

Entering its 14th year in 2017, the HRM Awards has earned its reputation as the renowned awards for rewarding and celebrating “Great HR”.

This can be attributed to the independent judging panel which is made up of HR experts from both the public and private sector.

The 2017 panel will represent organisations that include the Association of Small & Medium Enterprises (ASME), Employment and Employability Institute (e2i) and Tripartite Alliance for Fair & Progressive Employment Practices (TAFEP).
