31 industry players receive the 2022 HRD Award

KUALA LUMPUR: The outstanding achievements and contributions of 31 industry players in the development of human capital have been recognized as winners of the 2022 Human Resource Development (HRD 2022) Award, which took place last night.

This HRD2022 award is divided into two categories, namely the Minister of Human Resources Award for large company employers with 17 awards and the HRD Corp Award for 14 Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), training providers and trainers.

Human Resources Minister V. Sivakumar said the HRD Awards are the best way to evaluate the performance of employers and industry players, in strengthening their human resource development efforts.

“Malaysia’s long-term vision to become a high-income and economically developed country depends on our ability to develop the workforce and talent.

“However, this cannot be achieved if it is only done by the government.

“Each of us needs to play our respective roles and participate in various aspects to contribute to the development of human capital,” he said when officiating the 20th HRD Awards 2022 ceremony, here.

Sivakumar also congratulated all the winners and HRD Corp for their contribution and dedication towards strengthening Malaysia’s human capital development ecosystem.

Meanwhile, HRD Corp Chief Executive Officer Datuk Shahul Dawood said the award played an important role in shaping trends and facilitating the growth of Malaysia’s workforce and talent over the past two decades.

Shahul said a total of 5,508 registered employers from two categories were evaluated and the winners were selected by judges after a review of several months, based on innovative and effective approaches to human capital development.

The ceremony saw 17 awards given to the winners of the Minister of Human Resources Award and among the recipients included 7-Eleven Malaysia Sdn Bhd, AirAsia Berhad, Alam Flora Sdn Bhd, CIMB Bank Berhad and CUCKOO International (MAL) Sdn Bhd.

Meanwhile, the HRD Corp Award was given to 14 SMEs, training providers and trainers who have achieved the highest standards in human capital development and among the winners are Aspac Lubricants (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (for the employer category), CF Learning Services Sdn Bhd (training provider), and Alvin Tan Bok Lim (coach).

The ceremony was also attended by Deputy Minister of Human Resources Mustapha Sakmud.

The HRD 2022 Gala Dinenr Award was introduced by HRD Corp under the auspices of the Ministry of Human Resources in 2001, and is the country’s highest recognition for industry players who have led innovation and transformation of human capital.
