The PeopleFirst HR Excellence Awards are the most coveted, sought after and the longest running awards in the field of HR. They recognise professionals and companies that are willing to stretch the boundaries of people strategy. HR teams most often spend all their time and energy on the development of the rest of the organisation, without finding a relevant platform to think of themselves. The PeopleFirst HR Excellence Awards are about celebrating the finest initiatives in HR by organizations across geographies and provide opportunity for experts in the profession to recognize the world-class contributions made by their colleagues.
All submissions are evaluated by an eminent jury panel consisting of Industry experts, HR Leaders and Academicians. The selection process is conducted at two levels, each having a separate group of jury members to ensure objective and fair evaluation. At the end of the jury rounds, the list of Winner, 1st Runner up and 2nd Runner up in each category is decided. The awards are presented on the day of the event.
From the desk of the Director
A hearty ‘Congratulations’
To all the winners in each award category, on behalf of the PeopleFirst team. This year the preliminary jury examined an overwhelming number of nominations to decide the category wise top 3; and in some cases, recommended more than 3 due the quality of work showcased by organizations. The final jury members were impressed with the quality and quantum of work happening in every organization irrespective of the size, industry, sector or location. One can only empathize with them for making tough decisions to indicate the winner, 1st and 2nd runner up.
The awards team thanks our Sponsors, Strategic partners, Knowledge partners, Speakers, Panelists, Jury, Delegates, Student volunteers, and the ISME team for making the event a memorable one. I look forward to your continued patronage and partnership to make the 2020 event bigger…. better. Pre-registering for 2020 nominations will open shortly. Until we meet next year, may we all continue to build great organizations.

It’s been wonderful to be associated with the PeopleFirst HR Excellence Awards 2018. It was really an enlightening experience to see the amount of HR interventions that are happening and the truly genuine ways in which the jury are looking at HR talent coming their way.
