23 October 2014, MalaysiaHuman Resources, Asia’s most read and most respected source of HR news & intelligence, is pleased to announce global consulting leader, Mercer, as an official sponsor for this year’s Human Resources Excellence Awards in Malaysia.

As one of the leaders in the market, Mercer assists organisations with supporting business and talent objectives, while maximising the effectiveness of their benefits programs and balancing corporate cost constraints.

Mercer will join the event as the official sponsor for the Excellence in Compensation & Benefits Strategy award category.

“Mercer is one of the most recognised knowledge leaders in this area of compensation and benefits,” said Rebecca Lewis, editor of Human Resources magazine. “We are extremely pleased that they have decided to join us in recognising and celebrating the progression of the HR teams across Malaysia this year.”

According to Godelieve Kroonenberg, Malaysia Country Leader at Mercer, a “shortage of local talent” within the country has impacted the area of rewards, and likely also led to increases in the price of talent, especially within engineering, R&D and finance functions.

“Organisations therefore need to come up with innovative compensation practices to attract and retain the best talent in Malaysia while at the same time managing their cost,” said Kroonenberg. “Companies are increasingly embracing the total rewards approach rather than looking at compensation alone.”

The Human Resources Excellence Awards is grand black tie annual ceremony that aims to honour and award organisations and HR professionals for the outstanding work they have done in their function.

With a judging panel solely comprising of HR leaders from major organisations, this unique methodology sets the Human Resources Excellence Awards apart from all other HR accolades.

The awards will be held on the 29th of October, at the Hilton Kuala Lumper Hotel in Malaysia.

Seating at the awards is limited to availability, so book your tables for you and your team today!
