10 years of HR Excellence Awards, Malaysia: 2022 winners

A night of glitz, grace, and Great Gatsby glam which saw Maybank take home the HREA Grand Winner 2022 prize. Check out who else came out top!

The winners of the 10th HR Excellence Awards 2022, Malaysia were announced on 14 October 2022 (Friday) at a gala dinner attended by more than 500 HR leaders at Hilton Kuala Lumpur.

In the 10 years we’ve been organising these awards, one thing hasn’t changed at all – businesses are only as good as their people. And these employees want to work for a company that enriches their life with opportunities to learn and grow. A work environment that they enjoy coming to, where they feel like their contributions are being valued, and their efforts are supporting a greater purpose.

And this is exactly why we were all gathered tonight – to recognise the most recent efforts of our HR professionals who have given their company, their leaders, and their people managers, the tools to attract, retain, engage and develop talent.

With several quality wins under its belt, the team from Maybank (featured above) took home the night's top honours with the Grand Winner's prize for HR Excellence. View the full list of winners here.
