Seminar Room, Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF), Hotel Novotel Clarke Quay and PARKROYAL Hotels & Resorts are the top locations and venues chosen by HR professionals to hold or attend training for staff in Singapore.

This category in Vendors of the Year 2014 - an annual special edition published by Human Resources, based on a survey of senior HR professionals and C-suite business leaders - garnered a much higher number of nominations that in 2013, the first time the category was included in our survey.

For the first time, none of the locations voted in last year's Vendors of the Year were repeated in this category for 2014, proving companies are constantly looking to provide new and interesting venues for training.

Seminar Room - a training venue provider with a range of corporate rooms for rent - took out the top spot, followed by SNEF, which provides rooms for popular public workshops, programmes and corporate courses on a range of topics.

In joint third place, both Hotel Novotel and PARKROYAL (a combination of both PARKROYAL on Pickering and PARKROYAL on Beach Road) were chosen for their ability to host many corporate training events in multiple meeting, seminar and conference rooms.
