Nominations open for first-ever HRD Awards Asia

Nominations are now open for the inaugural HRD Awards Asia, an awards programme that will recognise the achievements of HR teams and leaders over the incredibly challenging past 12 months.

Presented by HRD Asia, the awards will offer a true snapshot of the best and brightest in HR and those who have stepped up and put their people first at a time when it mattered most.

Winners will be selected by an independent judging panel of leading senior HR practitioners and announced in HRD Asia online in October. They will also be promoted for their achievements and thought leadership across HRD Asia’s online content and industry events throughout the year. This is an unparalleled opportunity guaranteeing profession-wide recognition and a true acknowledgement that the winners are at the very top of their game.

We encourage HR professionals across Asia to nominate their team, colleagues, company, or themselves. Online nominations are straightforward, free and open until 18 September.
