Dubai: As the GCC continues to develop and with new economic benchmarks set by the leaders of the region, governments and public sector organizations are heralding a transformation with “people first” strategies. Recognizing and honouring individual and organization level contributions across the GCC, QNA International is gearing up to host the momentous GCC GOV HR Awards at the Emirates Palace Hotel, Abu Dhabi, on 26th October 2016.

The awards are to recognize, celebrate and honour the outstanding contributions and achievements of governments, business organizations and individuals in the GCC who have raised the benchmark of people performance across the region.

The high profile award ceremony will be held in conjunction with the 4th Annual GOV HR Summit, which is unquestionably the biggest gathering of GCC HR leaders and decision makers from governments, public, and private sector organizations.

The GCC GOV HR Awards will be presented in the following organizational and individual level categories:

  1. Organization of the Year for Women Empowerment
  2. Organization of the Year for Youth Empowerment
  3. Excellence in Talent Management Award
  4. GCC GOV HR Team of the Year
  5. Innovation in Employee Engagement
  6. Most Distinctive Learning and Development Strategy  
  7. Outstanding Change Management Strategy
  8. Innovative Recruitment and Retention Strategy
  9. Best Nationalization Initiative in the GCC
  10. Digital HR Award of the Year
  11. Nationalization Initiative in the Private Sector
  12. GOV HR Leader of the Year
  13. “People First” Leader Award

The main highlight of this year’s award categories is the ‘Best Nationalization Initiative in the GCC’ applicable to both the public and private sector. The award felicitates organizations that have undertaken initiatives that provide support for nationals to reach key leadership positions at both corporate and technical levels, and empower them to become highly qualified and committed leaders of tomorrow.

The individual set of awards includes the ‘GOV HR Leader of the Year’ and the ‘People First Leader’, both of which honours leaders who have pioneered HR strategies and have exemplified the increasingly strategic role of HR in business.

Mr. Ackash Jain, Organizer, GOV HR Summit and Awards 2016, said: “The GOV HR Awards brings many benefits to governments and businesses, including providing an opportunity to develop HR practices in lines with the economic vision of the region. We encourage companies to be part of the awards and to enable winners to share their best practices. Our journey towards excellence will continue and through our initiatives we strive to put the GCC at the forefront of human capital growth and economic development internationally.”
