Top HR Teams 2016

Despite leaner economic times, technology-driven disruption, the rise of millennials, and a desperate need for leaders, the top HR teams showcased on these pages are embracing change to put their organisations in winning positions. From managing organisational transformation projects to ennobling the lowliest of employees, and from growing new leaders with in-house universities and hackathons to achieving hard-won attrition rate reductions, today’s top HR teams are showing their dedication and willingness to innovate, and in a way that is gaining them management respect.

HRD’s Top HR Teams list gives some of Singapore’s best HR practitioners important recognition for the hard work they have done and the results they have achieved. But it also allows them to share some of their secrets with the rest of the HR community so that other organisations can gain insight into what works, and what doesn’t.
