HCL Technologies wins The HR Excellence Award 2014
HCL Technologies Ltd. has won the coveted HR Excellence Awards 2014 for “Most innovative deployment of HR technology” category. The HR Excellence award represents the gold standard for people strategy, which has made it one of the most credible, highly sought after and most significant benchmarks of people strategy in the HR community.
HCL has won the accolade for gamification of its onboarding process to combat the problem of a high offer renege rate faced by the industry today. The IT industry faces a unique challenge in holding on to the candidates who have been offered a job. This is the combined effect of a large time gap between the Date of Offer (DOO) and Date of Joining (DOJ) and the increasing job opportunities in the resurgent IT market. HCL’s breakthrough idea of gamifying the onboarding has led to optimisation of candidate engagement and building predictability into the joining process.
The award ceremony was hosted by HR Magazine in London and witnessed a gathering of over 600 HR professionals who were together to appreciate the success and innovations of all the winners. HCL was the only Indian company to have been shortlisted for three categories; Most innovative deployment of HR technology, Best CSHR strategy and Most innovative deployment of HR technology.
