About the AHCA
Introduced in 2009, the Asian Human Capital Award (AHCA) honours innovative and impactful people practices and frameworks adopted by organisations in Asia. Since its inception, the AHCA has grown from strength to strength. It has gained regional recognition as a premier award, with organisations from a multitude of industries located in 11 countries around the region participating in it in 2013.
Conferred by MOM and the Human Capital Leadership Institute (HCLI), this prestigious award is accorded to no more than two Award Winners, and three Special Commendation Prize Recipients.
Entries are assessed based on the following criteria:
- The framework or practice is aligned to the organisation’s business strategy.
- The framework or practice demonstrates innovation and is contextualised to address specific human capital or business challenges faced by the organisation.
- The framework or practice demonstrates high quality in its development and execution, and received widespread adoption across the organisation.
- The framework or practice creates significant impact and value to the organisation, and helps achieve a competitive advantage.
The AHCA Judging and Shortlisting Panels comprise prominent business and HR leaders as well as notable members of the public sector and academia.
Past Award Winners include Manila Electric Company, Unilever Thailand, Olam International Ltd, and Gemalto Pte Ltd. Their exemplary human capital practices and frameworks are translated into effective case studies published for the benefit of other organisations in the region.
