While we do not want to look back at 2020, but as we do, we realize that it has been a watershed year in the history of people, work, and most importantly HR. The year not only brought about a radical shift across all facets of business and companies but also catapulted HR to that coveted table it has been vying to get a seat at, for many decades. As HR leaders played a pivotal role in spearheading their organizations through the uncertainty, stress, and change, they developed and defined a new core set of skills which is going to be a prerequisite of emerging HR leaders in the second year of the pandemic and beyond.
It is these very visionary and talented HR leaders that the People Matters Are you in the List 2021? Awards which is in its 10th year of running aims to recognize- the new generation of HR leaders who rose to the challenge of 2020 and became the answer to the challenges in the People and Work space and have redefined HR for the future HR leaders.
The awards will endeavor to identify a handful of such talent powerhouses who successfully charted the course of the future for their organizations amidst all the crises, risk, and disruptions that ensued in the year of the pandemic. For leaders who think they are the answer to this quest of a future leader who can lead the change in 2021 and beyond, People Matters Are you in the List 2021? is the right stage-as it has been for the last 10 years, identifying the emerging HR beacons of tomorrow who can rise to the challenges of the future.
19,200+ applications, 147 emerging HR leaders
In the last nine years, we have received more than 19,200+ applications, out of which more than 147 emerging HR leaders have been recognized till now. What makes this initiative stand out is the fact that participants have to go through a 6-stage rigorous process that separates the wheat from the chaff.
This rigorous process of selection has ensured that the awards spot those courageous HR professionals who are anticipators of workforce and talent trends relevant to the business. But this legacy just does not end at spotting these future leaders. The fact that many of these HR professionals have now made their way to the top rung of management as HR Heads/Function Heads is a testimony to the fact that the awards are not just merely corporate awards but recognition par excellence.
People Matters has been presenting these most awaited awards every year since 2012. The award journey was conceptualized in 2012 in collaboration with Development Dimensions International (DDI) which is the Presenting Partner for this year as well. Meanwhile, AuthBridge is the Authentication Partner for this year.
Last year, in August, the 9th Edition of People Matters Are You In The List 2020 saw 10 finalists being crowned as the future 'Emerging HR Leaders'.
This year too, the awards will endeavor to identify a handful of such talent powerhouses who have it in them to successfully chart the course of the future for their organizations amidst all the crises and disruptions that will ensue in the future. The jury for this year consists of eminent leaders such as Rohit Kapoor, CEO - India & South Asia , OYO; Kamal Bali, President and MD, Volvo Group India; Venkataraman S. V., Managing Director, ANZ; and Aruna Jayanthi, Managing Director, Asia Pacific and Latin America, Capgemini.
