Who has the best C&B strategies in Asia?

Gathering 50 top regional chief HR and senior business leaders at a three-day business retreat forum, the exclusive HR Innovation Leaders' Summit will happen from September 9-11. Get involved.

The success of high-performing companies can be traced to their smart and innovative compensation & benefits strategies. The cream of the crop in this area will be recognised at HR Excellence Awards, Asia’s most respected awards recognising and celebrating excellence in outstanding human capital strategy and execution, happening in Kuala Lumpur on 4 October, in Hong Kong on 6 October, and in Singapore on 9 October.

Aditi Sharma Kalra, regional editor of Human Resources magazine, explained that the Excellence in Compensation & Benefits Strategy award is for organisations that can simultaneously meet employee demands and drive business growth. “The HR Excellence Awards 2016 jury will select the most innovative programmes that cover remuneration and benefits components.”

Last year, multinational consumer goods company Unilever received the gold prize of the Excellence in Compensation & Benefits Strategy award at the HR Excellence Awards in Singapore. Telecommunications firm Singtel grabbed the silver trophy, and banking and financial services company DBS Bank grabbed the bronze award.

The gold prize of the Excellence in Compensation & Benefits Strategy award went to the consumer group Astro at the HR Excellence Awards 2015 in Malaysia. The silver prize was received by leading industrial enterprise UMW Corporation and the bronze was won by the Human Resource Development Fund.

The HR Innovation Awards 2015 in Hong Kong gave the gold prize of the Excellence in Compensation & Benefits Strategy award to Avnet Technology, a global leader in technology distribution. Premier conglomerate New World Development and the Hong Kong Broadband Network shared the silver award while communication group Madison Communications went home with the bronze.

“C&B strategies that efficiently and creatively match employee remuneration and benefits as well as business strategy are perfect candidates for the Excellence in Compensation & Benefits Strategy award,” said Sammi Zhang, regional production head at Human Resources magazine. “Those who win the award will not only get to prove their team’s innovation but also intelligence, leadership and commitment.”

The HR Excellence Awards 2016 will be judged by over 60 seasoned regional heads of HR from around Asia, making the HR Excellence Awards the only HR awards in Asia based on a peer review system. Companies represented on the HR Excellence Awards jury are the most respected Fortune 500 organisations and some of the biggest employers in Asia.

Past HR Excellence Awards winners are a who’s who of the most respected HR teams in Asia – American Express, ANZ, Astro, British American Tobacco, Country Heights Holdings, DBS Bank, Galaxy Entertainment, HIS Global, Hong Kong Broadband Network, Human Resource Development Fund, Inland Revenue Board – Malaysia, IPG Mediabrands, Leaderonomics, Lumileds, Madison Communications, Manulife, Maybank, Media Prima, Mindvalley, Mitsubishi, National Environment Agency, New World Development, Schneider Electric, Sime Darby Holdings, Singtel, UMW Corporation, Unilever, Venture Corporation and many more have all proudly accepted HR Excellence Awards trophies over the year.
