Lee Hecht Harrison clinched the gold award at at 2015’s Vendors of the Year (VOTY) awards in Singapore, emerging as the best outplacement consultant in the nation.
The Vendors of the Year awards, organised by Human Resources magazine, is a long-running annual vendor rankings report that recognises the best solution providers in Asia – starting out in Singapore, and this year extended to Malaysia and Hong Kong.
Right Management bagged the silver award, while Capita Group and Sandbox Advisors both tied for a bronze last year.
The GMP Group emerged as a finalist.
“With the ebb and flow of business cycles and regular merger & acquisition activity, downsizing is an ever-present part of the corporate landscape,” said Aditi Sharma Kalra, regional editor, Human Resources magazine.
“Outplacement consultants are engaged by reputable companies to help their redundant staff enhance their skills and re-enter the workforce with minimum disruption. The winner of the ‘best outplacement consultant’ award is the outplacement firm which consistently gets recently-redundant staff back to work quickly, effectively and respectfully.”
In the tenth year of the VOTY research, all winners were determined on a two-tier selection process. First, the finalists were identified through an extensive online survey of HR managers in Asia on their preferences.
These finalists then submitted documentation to verify their credentials, which was validated by a panel of more than 50 HR leaders from some of the region’s largest employers.
In effect, for every category, the very end users of such services were the ones who made the critical decision of selecting the best.
