SHL Awarded Best HR Assessment Company of the Year in Greater China 2011-2012
SHANGHAI, March 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
In its fifth year of celebrating excellence and innovation in the HR sector, the Annual Human Resources Awards are highly regarded throughout the industry for acknowledging organizations' outstanding contribution and best practice. The independent judging panel comprised of HEC Paris, Wall Street Journal and Human Capital Management, reviewed each entry and selected winners based on proven results, positive impact and customer feedback.
Up against strong competition, SHL was delighted to secure this title. Mike Tims, President, Asia, Middle East and Africa, SHL comments:"Winning HR Assessment Company of the Year is a significant accomplishment, and great recognition of SHL as the leader in talent measurement and a global authority on the science of people in the workplace. We are delighted to receive this prestigious accolade for our contribution to the HR sector, and remain committed to transforming the way talent is assessed, hired and managed."
SHL's expertise is built on over 30 years of experience and innovation in the delivery of talent assessment solutions. Over the last five years, SHL has made significant investment in the Chinese market, Fu Quan, General Manager, SHL China explains: "When we launched our operation in China, our goal was to provide unrivalled assessment science, benchmark data, technology and consultancy that would equip our clients with the people intelligence necessary to make better talent recruitment and development. This recognition by our peers indicates that we are on the right path to improving organisations' understanding of the workforce and the impact on business results, to help our customers to make informed talent decisions - driving measurable business results and sustaining competitive advantage."
China has made economic transformation a national strategy from 2011. As a key step of transformation, national talent strategy provides a huge growth potential for the talent assessment sector, and also brings the talent assessment sector under the spot light. According to National Program for Medium and Long-termÂ Talent DevelopmentÂ (2010-2020), there will be 42 million business management talents by 2020. The enormous demand to develop business management talents is gradually promoting the talent assessment from being a branch of HR development into the mainstream.
This latest accolade follows a prestigious award win for SHL in the US, where SHL Talent Analytics™, its newest offering, won silver in the coveted 2011 Brandon HallÂ Excellence in Technology Awards in the Workforce Analytics Planning and Technology category.
