The criteria for the award is adopted from the People Management Excellence Framework crafted by PMAP Past President Enrique V. Abadesco, DPM.

Criteria for the Award

  1. Line Management & HR Partnership (25%) - The driving attribute of a high performing people-focused organization is the partnership between HR and line management. People programs show how senior leaders clearly articulate and visibly demonstrate how they value their people. The program demonstrates that HR is considered a strategic player in the organization. Line managers champion these people programs and take the lead in engaging their people.
  2. Performance Focus (25%) - As evidenced through quantifiable results, this criterion looks at the impact of the program to substantially help in improving the economic, organizational health, social and/or aesthetic standards of the organization as well as its key stakeholders.
  3. Leadership Approaches (20%) - Excellent programs and initiatives are characterized as transformative, innovative and systematic. These programs are designed to constantly adapt to the changing challenges of the organizations external environments, and promote an open, change-friendly and continuous improvement mindset. Leaders or program champions apply coaching, inspiring and engaging people to make the programs successful.
  4. People Engagement (20%) - The program allows the organization to tap the full potential of their workforce. The program elicits employee participation and engagement; attends to their learning and development needs and systematically pays attention to their engagement levels and well-being needs.
  5. Social Responsibility (5%) - Good citizenship, community relations and environmental protection are key responsibilities that are given high importance to by excellent organizations. This attribute also covers business ethics, the protection of public health and safety, the promotion of volunteerism, and the sharing of best practices.
  6. HR Competence and Credibility (5%) - A pre-condition of the first attribute (line management and HR partnership) is the HR unit’s competence and credibility. Credibility comes from the HR practitioners’ personal values and professional maturity while competence comes from their conceptual, business, and HR functional expertise.
