Celebrating HR talent and leaders

More than 500 Human Resource (HR) professionals and 40 organisations came together to celebrate the much anticipated 15th Malaysia HR Awards 2015 which took place on Oct 29, 2015 at Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa.

Organised yearly since 1999, this coveted national event was proudly organised by the Malaysian Institute of Human Resource Management (MIHRM) in partnership with a leading online job portal.

The awards ceremony was endorsed by the HR community, with the Minister of Human Resources as patron.

According to MIHRM president Aresandiran Jaganatha Naidu, the awards saw a 25% increase in its turnout and more than a 50% increase in the number of participating organisations, compared to last year.

He said, “Only MIHRM award winners can have the glory to be recognised in 95 countries (sister HR institutes worldwide) because of our world affiliations and mutual recognitions.”

He also highlighted the grand award win by KPJ Healthcare Bhd, as it exemplified that home grown organisations have what it takes to achieve success while competing with larger enterprises or multinational corporations (MNCs).

Objectives of the awards:

  • To encourage the recognition of HR and the application of HR strategy and management in achieving business key performance indicators.
  • To encourage the recognition of HR both as resource and asset to achieve organizational growth.

MIHRM president Aresandiran Jaganatha Naidu said, “We are proud that the Awards have created a greater awareness of HR management to our business environment and in the acceleration of our nation’s development to have talented HR professionals in preparation to be a developed nation by 2020.”

Invitations to participate in next year’s Awards are already open. More details on this can be found at www.mihrm.com.
