10 years of HR Excellence Awards, Malaysia: 2022 winners


A Great Gatsby night of glitz, grace and glam that saw Maybank take home the 2022 HREA Grand Winner award. Find out who else came out on top!

The winners of the 10e The 2022 HR Excellence Awards, Malaysia was announced on October 14, 2022 (Friday) at a gala dinner attended by nearly 600 HR managers at the Hilton Kuala Lumpur.

In the 10 years that we have organized these awards, one thing has not changed at all: companies are only as good as their employees. And these employees want to work for a company that enriches their lives with opportunities to learn and grow. A work environment they enjoy coming to, where they feel their contributions are valued, and where their efforts support a greater purpose.

And that’s exactly why we all came together tonight – to recognize the most recent efforts of our HR professionals who have given their business, their leaders and their people managers the tools to attract, retain, engage and develop talent.

With several quality wins under their belt, the Maybank team (pictured above) took top honors of the evening with the overall winner award for excellence in HR. See the full list of winners here.
