Are you an HR leader looking for a platform to build the right skills and capabilities to lead the future influenced by Gen AI? Have you been on the lookout to be mentored by visionary CHROs, who can offer you key insights into the evolution of HR in 2024 and beyond? Are you eager to understand what a CEO needs from its CHRO and HR function for better business outcomes? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, then you’ve landed at the right place. People Matters Are You In The List in partnership with AON, one of the most coveted awards for HR leaders, is back with its 13th edition to identify the talent powerhouses of tomorrow, today.
12 years ago, People Matters endeavoured to put resilient, agile, courageous and bold HR leaders on the map with Are You In The List awards and it’s been on the path of recognising these emerging leaders, who’ve been at the forefront of change. With over 22,659 applications, 186 winners and over 106 jury members, People Matters Are You In The List has become a beacon for all those leaders looking to transform their organisations in these uncertain times.
This year, in partnership with AON, the evaluation process becomes even more rigorous with the volatility and disruptions surrounding the future of work. The six-stage evaluation process begins with an online application form from December 20 where candidates register details about themselves. The chosen candidates are then evaluated on personality, cognitive and functional assessments, developed by AON on HR competency framework to evaluate business acumen, effective partnership and technical acumen.
As one progresses to the next stage, which is bifurcated into two parts, there is case-based situational judgement tests (SJT) to assess an individual’s attitude and behaviour to diverse work-related scenarios as well as a video interview round, where candidates have to answer pre-determined questions to gauge core competencies.
If you clear these three rounds, you move to one of the most acclaimed rounds, CHRO coaching where the likes of Shraddhanjali Rao, Google; Vikram Tandon, Adani Group and Girish Menon, Swiggy, among others will guide and mentor you on the key skills and capabilities to become a people and business leader. It will be a month-long process where each CHRO will mentor the candidates in groups.
And in the end, it culminates into CEO july evaluation, which is a virtual face-off with a panel of visionary CEOs, such as Kamal Bali, Volvo India; Samir MC, Fortune Park Hotels Ltd. and Maharaja Heritage Resort ITC Ltd. and SV Venkataraman, Bengaluru Service Centre ANZ, among others. This jury will finally identify the emerging future HR leaders, who will be recognised at Asia’s largest HR and Work Tech Conference, People Matters TechHR 2024 in the presence of the entire HR community.
This is your ultimate chance to transform yourself to lead the future of HR. The only eligibility criteria for candidates to keep in mind before applying is falling in the age range of 26-35 years, with a minimum experience of three years in HR, holding an HR role at the time of registration.
