Suntec Singapore wins the 2018 UFI Human Resources Award

The UFI HR Award is one of UFI’s annual competitions that recognises and rewards successful result oriented initiatives in the exhibition industry.

Paris – UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, has named Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre as winner of the 2018 UFI Human Resources Award, presenting the project on Successful changes in the exhibition industry: the strategic role of HR as business partners.

This year’s Human Resources Award aimed at honouring company activities that analyse the role of HR, and in particular of HR Business Partner, in the overall company strategy placing emphasis on the human element. The HR Committee took its decision during its recent meeting in Cologne, 3 July 2018, where projects of the three strong finalists, IFEMA (Spain), Messe München (Germany) and Suntec Singapore (Singapore), were discussed.

Suntec Singapore’s project was selected for its corporate strategy that endorsed a closer contact between HR people and different departments as well as between the HR department and the company’s top management structure. In addition, the project presented a clearly planned project implementation with measured results, and it proved to be a modern approach to a large scope of HR activities,” said Cecilia Henningsson, Chair of UFI HR Management Committee.

We are honoured to have won the 2018 UFI HR Award!” commented the CEO of Suntec Singapore, Arun Madhok. “Suntec HRBP, my team of HR Business Partners, have redefined the meaning of human resources in our company. They work seamlessly with each department ensuring that our employees are future-ready while encouraging a healthy work-life balance and championing the retention of our matured workforce. Our Suntec HRBP will continue their efforts to make Suntec Singapore the preferred place to work for all our employees”.
