A: You may select the closest match for your organisation on the application form, and we will then assess your sector based on the criteria you have selected.

Q: Can we clarify what "nomination" refers to?
A: "Nomination" refers to the process of applying on behalf of your organisation for a specific award category that aligns with the HR practices you have implemented.
Q: What's the difference between the deadlines of 15th July (close of nomination applications) and 31st July (close of report submission)?
A: The application period is open from now until 15th July. Once you submit your nomination application, you will have additional time to prepare and submit the required write-up report and supporting documents for your nominated award category. The write-up report must be provided to SHRI no later than 31st July.
Q: Can you confirm if SHRI provides a template document for the submission of the write-up report? Alternatively, can we use our own Word document template?
A: We will provide a template for the submission report once your application has been confirmed, and we would advise to use our provided template. However, if you prefer to use your own Word document template, you are welcome to do so. Just ensure that your report covers all the assessment areas stated in the info kit for your nominated award category.
Q: If we are a government entity, what document can we submit instead of Bizfile ACRA or ROS?
A: You can simply screenshot your agency's UEN from the Uen.Gov Website as a form of verification and submit it as a PDF document during your application process for The 16th SHRA.
Q: Is attendance at the 16th SHRI Gala Presentation Award Ceremony mandatory? Is attendance at the 16th SHRI Gala Presentation Award Ceremony mandatory?
A: While attendance is not mandatory, we highly encourage participating organisations to join us at the ceremony. Attending the event provides an excellent opportunity to celebrate your achievements, network with industry peers, and gain recognition for your exceptional HR practices.
Q: Are supporting documents required other than submitting a report?
A: The submission of supporting documents is not mandatory. However, if you have relevant supporting materials available, we recommend including them in your report. This can enhance the credibility and robustness of your submission, allowing the assessment panel to gain a more comprehensive understanding of your HR practices.

Q: Is there an offline form that we can submit our bulk application for?

A: All applications and submission of reports & supporting documents have to be completed through our online form on JotForm. For bulk submissions, you will be able to multi-submit the categories' reports and supporting documents in one submission.
Q: If my company consists of more than a single entity, do I combine the organisational and employee data into a single entity or do I keep the data individually for the chosen applied entity?
A: Should the entities share similar HR practices or are handled by a collective HR department, you can combine all the data into a single entity for application and report submission.
