HR Excellence Awards

Heartiest congratulations to all the winners and finalists on the evening, which saw Borouge win the Grand Winner's prize to cap off a series of wins!

5 October 2022 (Wednesday) was a special night for the team at Human Resources Online, one that we have waited a long time for – it was the 10th edition of our HR Excellence Awards in Singapore!

HRO is privileged to organise the most coveted and respected awards platform for the HR community in Asia, which debuted in Singapore a decade ago, and has since expanded to recognised progressive HR practices in Malaysia, Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines.

The theme for the gala event, TINseltown, was an ode to tin, the traditional gift associated with celebrating 10 years, but more than that, an acknowledgment of the strength and resilience of the HR community. 

With more than 600 HR professionals attending the awards, the #HRExcellenceAwards honoured distinguished organisations across Asia, the Middle East, and/or Oceania for their robust human capital strategy. The categories covered HR functions ranging from recruitment, employee engagement, leadership development, retention, and more.

Having secured a number of quality wins, the team from Borouge (featured above) took home the night's top honours with the Grand Winner's prize for HR Excellence.
