The Asia HRD Awards is a celebration and recognition of virtuosos who contribute to people development - whether it is to the human resource profession, an organisation, the community or society at large. Each award honours individuals and organisations that have demonstrably enriched and made a lasting impact on people development and society.

Launched as an independent initiative in 2003 with just 5 recipients from 2 countries, the Awards have now become a prestigious annual event with the Asia HRD Awards Hall of Fame honouring a total of 229 Recipients from 21 countries. The Awards Committee welcomes nominations throughout the year from all over the globe, particularly from Asia.

The goal of the Awards is to showcase achievements and develop best practices to further enrich the field of people development. Over the years, we have been fortunate enough to host our annual Awards Gala Dinner in various cities including Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Bahrain, Kuching, Bangalore, Dubai and Putrajaya.
