In most cases, staff gain the most from a training session when it takes place off-site at a neutral venue. In fact, the excitement, anticipation and expectations that surround a training session are quite often dependent on the choice of venue.

The best training venues not only have state-of-the-art facilities, but also look to build long-term relationships. These venues encourage communication, creativity and confidence within set budgets, and have established themselves within the market.

At last year’s HR Vendors of the Year awards, Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre stood out among others in Singapore to secure the gold award in the Best Training Venue category, while Village Hotel Changi took home the silver, and Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore the bronze.

The HR Vendors of the Year awards, organised by Human Resources, is a long-running annual report that recognises the best solution providers in Asia – Singapore, Hong Kong, and Malaysia.

In the 12th edition of the research, all winners were ranked based on a two-tier selection process – an online survey amongst a selected database of HR professionals, followed by submissions by finalists detailing their prowess for a panel of more than 50 senior HR leaders.
