12th CII National HR Excellence Award 2021

Date: Registration till 30th April 2021
Venue: Virtual

About the Programme:

The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is happy to announce the start of the 12th edition of the CII National HR Excellence Award. This is one of our most important intervention that we offer every year

Over the decade 380+ organizations have actively taken part and benefitted from the HR Excellence Award Assessment Process. We have also trained and certified 400+ HR Professionals as Assessors under the HR Excellence Award Model. The underlying thrust of the CII HR Excellence Award system is that the companies do not compete against each other but against the HR Award Model Criteria and hence the scoring is absolute and not relative. 

The CII National HR Excellence Award process involves organizations to submit a detailed “Application Document” in line with the CII National HR Excellence 6 Box Model Criteria. Organizations are assessed by an in-depth rigorous assessment process. Based on these, recognitions are awarded under the following 4 categories: (a) Role Model Organization (b) Leadership in HR Excellence (c) Significant Achievement in HR Excellence (d) Strong Commitment to HR Excellence. 

Participation in the HR Excellence Award Process enables organizations not only to vie for recognition of Excellence achieved in their HR processes but also obtain a detailed feedback of their respective processes, which is provided to each participating organization after the results are announced. The Senior Assessor from the Assessment Team also shares a Closing Presentation immediately on the last day of the assessment process to the senior management. This enables the participating organization to further strengthen their HR processes and policies through a thorough gap assessment and analysis. 

Regular participation in the Award process enables an organization to strengthen their people processes and capacity building to perform in competitive times. NTPC Limited was recognized as “Role Model in HR Excellence” for the year 2020. Beside Saint Gobain, NTPC limited is the second organization, to be conferred this prestigious recognition since the inception of the CII National HR Excellence Award in 2010.

Participation in the Award program is complemented by an Assessor Training Workshop for all participating organizations where the Organization can nominate one participant free of charge on a complimentary basis for the workshop. Attached please find an E-Flyer for your ready reference.
