Not only did Skillsoft win gold at 2015’s HR Vendors of the Year (VOTY) awards in Malaysia, but it also bagged the silver prize at the HR Vendors of the Year awards in both Singapore and Hong Kong, in the category of Best Talent Management Software.

Another strong contender in the category was HRBoss, which won the gold trophy in the Awards in Singapore, impressing the hury with its intuitive, configurable and supported on-the-ground solution.

Bernie Schiemer, CEO and founder of HRBoss, that's headquartered in Singapore commented: "We are extremely pleased to be awarded this prestigious title. With an Asian-first philosophy, we fought very hard to overcome the challenges of building a suite of affordable workforce solutions that work in Asia."

"It’s extremely rewarding to know that we were up against really strong competition so to be recognised as an industry leader alongside the biggest names is truly a milestone for us. Well done and congratulation to all winners and finalists."

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.

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.
