The first-ever HR Fest Awards will take place at HR Festival Asia this year. The winners will be announced at the event’s HR Tech stage at the close of the first day’s proceedings on May 8.

Awards will be given out in five region-wide categories.

More than 75 nominations were received across the awards programme, with the Microsoft Best HR Leader Award proving particularly competitive. Judges named a strong field of 16 accolade-worthy finalists in this category. In the other individual category – the Cornerstone Best C-Suite Leader Award – five finalists will fight to lay claim to the coveted trophy.

The RChilli Best Use of HR Technology Award attracted a wide range of nominating organisations from across several industries – all utilising technology to ensure the best possible processes across communications, HR, and other aspects of their daily work. A total of seven organisations – including three major banks – have been named as finalists in this category.

Six companies will fight it out for the SAP Best Innovation in HR Award, while a total of 11 finalist organisations have been named in the ADP Best HR Transformation Award.

An esteemed panel of judges will be selecting the five winners from some 40 finalists in total, based on detailed reports submitted by each nominee. 

The first-ever HR Festival Asia, brought to you by the combined experience of HR Technology Conference & Exposition (US) and HR Summit (Asia), will descend upon Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre on May 8 and 9. It is slated to be Asia-Pacific’s biggest HR and technology conference, boasting six dedicated conference streams and a packed Expo.
