Date: 31st May 2021
Venue: Virtual-Webx

About the Programme: CII-HR Excellence Award Model is based on the CII-Exim Bank Excellence Award encompassing all aspects of human resource management and acts as a practical tool for

1) Self- Assessment by measuring the current status and thus identifying the gaps to stimulate solutions.
2) As a framework to position various HR initiatives and identify gaps.
3) A basis to develop a common understanding of various terms used in the HR Management.

The CII National HR Excellence Award process involves organizations submitting a detailed “Application Document” in line with the CII National HR Excellence 6 Box Model Criteria. The model can be effectively used as a framework to position HR initiatives, measure current status, and identify gaps to stimulate solutions. Through this model, CII aims to help improve HR performance practices and capabilities by providing objective feedback for improvement while also facilitating communication and sharing of best practices and information within and among organizations.

The HR Excellence Award aims to achieve the following:

1) To help improve Human Resources and performance practices, capabilities, by providing objective feedback for improvement to each applicant.
2) To facilitate communication and sharing of information in best practices within and among organizations of all types
3) To recognize organizations for Excellence in Human Resources practices and programs.

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. These levels signify the various milestones which the Organizations can aim for as they progress on their journey towards achieving HR Excellence. Therefore, Organizations at different levels of competitiveness can benefit from participating in the Award process.

Eligibility criteria: :

  • All Organizations operating in India are eligible to apply for the Award. The applicant must be actively in business at least for the past three years. A company/ Organization is only eligible to win the HR Excellence Award once in every three years.
Key Take Aways :
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Regular participation in the Award process enables an organization to strengthen their people processes and capacity building to perform in competitive times.
  • Participation in the Award Program is complemented by an Assessor Training Workshop for all Participating Organizations where the Organization can nominate one participant on a complimentary basis for the workshop.
