The SHRD Award was created in 2011 with the idea of encouraging and sharing best practices among HRD practitioners so that a database of good practices could be created and a network between Human Resources of different organizations could exist.

In conjunction with the HRD Audit, the SHRD Award is a way to evaluate the status of HRD in different organizations and to ensure that the standards set, locally as well as internationally, are met.

The objectives of the SHRD Award are to:

A) Sensitize stakeholders on the importance of HRD in their respective organizations.

B) Encourage HRD in workplaces.

C) Recognize and reward organizations which demonstrate excellence in HRD implementation.
