Celebrating HR excellence!
The highly-anticipated and celebrated 14th Malaysia HR Awards 2014 ended with a bang on the grand evening of Nov 13, 2014 in Kuala Lumpur.
Held annually since 1999, the coveted human resources (HR) event was organised by the Malaysian Institute of Human Resource Management (MIHRM) in partnership with Jobstreet.com.
The globally recognised HR Awards ceremony was graced by the Deputy Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri Haji Ismail bin Haji Abdul Muttalib, top HR leaders across industries as well as other dignitaries.
There were eight HR award categories (See Table 1 for award categories and award winners), with winners awarded grand, gold, silver and bronze.
Objectives and purpose
The Malaysia HR Awards serves to recognise and acknowledge individuals and organisations/corporations in the HR community for their relentless effort in advancing the HR sphere, including developing talent, advocating best HR practices and trailblazing new HR initiatives.
The awards ceremony also serves as an excellent platform for the HR community to share and exchange ideas, as well as learn from one another.
Organisations with this accolade can boost their corporate profile and that of their HR leaders.
It also ensures peer recognition in the HR community for the commendable work of HR leaders in managing one of their greatest assets, i.e. the people in their respective organisations.
