Recruiting the right people is harder than ever today as the talent market becomes increasingly competitive. That is why the Asia Recruitment Awards, Asia’s only regional awards show dedicated to recognising and celebrating the best in talent acquisition, will put the spotlight on the most innovative recruitment programmes initiated by leading HR teams and recruitment agencies.

The Asia Recruitment Awards, a premier event that rewards excellence in HR recruitment, is happening in 2017 in Kuala Lumpur on 31 March, Singapore on 7 April, and Hong Kong on 12 April.

According to Aditi Sharma Kalra, regional editor of Human Resources magazine, the category for the best recruitment programme aims to recognise creative and efficient strategies in talent search and acquisition. “The Asia Recruitment Awards judges will also review how groups have achieved hiring objectives, selected the right talent, and met global recruitment standards.”

Last year’s winners of the Best Regional Recruitment Programme at the Asia Recruitment Awards – Singapore were SAP for the gold prize, ANZ Bank for the silver award, and the bronze prize was shared by GroupM and Ericsson. For the Best Graduate Recruitment Programme award, Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore and Citibank both received the gold award. There were also two recipients for the silver award, the national water agency PUB and Deloitte, and the bronze award went to Parkway Pantai. The Best Staff Referral Programme winners were Certis Cisco for the gold award, Ericsson for the silver, and Manulife for the bronze.
