The jury for this year’s award was led by Hari TN, a veteran HR leader, mentor, advisor, and author of many well-known books related to corporate life.
Hari shares his thoughts about the evaluation process:
“2020 has been an exceptionally challenging year for businesses and their employees. Hence, most organizations have put in a lot of effort into driving their employee rewards and recognition programs to thank and appreciate team members who have been doing their best to keep things moving despite the challenges.
For the evaluation, we used a comprehensive framework that covered key aspects such as program design, implementation, integration, communication and impact. It was a close finish but we had to eventually pick a winner. I would like to congratulate the Prodapt team for winning this award and wish them the best of luck for the future”.
In fact, the ‘Best Employee Recognition Program Award’ was introduced by HiFives to acknowledge exceptional employee recognition programs.
Sagar Chaudhuri, the CEO and Co-Founder of HiFives, talks about the award:
“Basically, our sole intent behind this award is to recognize the amazing efforts of those organizations that are at the forefront of developing and implementing innovative employee recognition programs that drive great results”.
