SBR lauds top executives and teams at Management Excellence Awards 2022
More than 40 companies were awarded in the awards programme’s 8th year
As companies emerge from the effects of the pandemic and recent supply chain disruption that caused chaos within many industries, leaders have had to make tough decisions on the direction their company would take, as the challenging market conditions require more work and effort in order to thrive and survive.
The 8th SBR Management Excellence Awards commended the outstanding performances of executives, teams, and companies and initiatives that have brought tangible achievements for businesses. Innovators and their revolutionary ideas that have brought the future of doing business into the present were also celebrated, as over 40 executives and teams were awarded in their respective industries.
Apart from just initiatives that aimed to bring businesses success, companies and their employee engagements and COVID management initiatives that have left a lasting positive impact on their workforce were also honoured for their exceptional strides.
Industries such as banking and finance, real estate, insurance, retail, and healthcare were well-represented by the winning companies, which were awarded last November 17 at the Shangri-la Singapore with over 300 attendees.
Nominations were screened under the meticulous eyes of this year’s distinguished judges, made up of Wai Keat Cheang, Partner, Consulting at Ernst & Young Advisory Pte. Ltd; Seah Gek Choo, Boardroom Program Leader and Talent Leader at Deloitte Southeast Asia; Roger Loo, Executive Director of Management Consulting at BDO LLP; and Irving Low, Co-Head of Advisory at KPMG Singapore.
Congratulations to the winners!
