"We were especially delighted to win Gold as a Group because Brandix comprises of a large number of companies and a team of over 42,000 associates in 38 factory operations in three countries," he said. "In such a scenario, demonstrating to the judges and audit teams that our exemplary employee practices are adopted across all these entities throughout the Group was a challenging task."

He said the people-related areas assessed for the award encompass all aspects of HR across the entire employee life cycle. "Therefore, winning Gold as one Group makes our HR team very proud of this achievement and this was only possible due to the vast support and collaboration we received from the CEOs and Leaders in our operations across the Group," Mr. Dantanarayana said.

The criteria for selecting winners included HR and business engagement, HR interaction with the leadership and across, manpower planning, hiring, employee relations, performance and talent management, career and leadership development, training and capability enhancement, access to resources, compensation, rewards & recognition, people administration, communication, working environment, health and wellbeing, retention practices, exit management and employer branding.

This was the second accolade won by Brandix in July 2012 for HR practices. The first was the award for 'Best Talent Management Practices in Asia' at the 2012 CMO Asia Awards for Excellence in Branding and Marketing in Singapore.
