For companies across India
The Genius HR Excellence Awards were launched in 2011 to spotlight the importance of HR as a profession and contributions of HR towards the growth of an organization. Since 2012, the Genius HR Excellence Awards were open to companies and professionals across India. The awards take a comprehensive look at the spectrum of HR services and are presented to the most outstanding achievers in these areas.
‘To honour best practices in HR’
‘We conceptualized these awards to highlight the creativity of HR practitioners of organisations with the aim to encouraging the adoption of best practices from one another. Recognizing excellence in the field of human capital management and celebrating success helps inspire an industry that fosters leadership skills, service, motivation, innovation and encouraging a continuous upgrade of the working environment. I’d like to congratulate all the achievers who have won the HR Excellence Awards in various fields. I’d also like to thank the jury members and all the participants who made this event a great success.’
