The 7th edition of "Randstad Awards" will be held at the The Leela Ambience, Gurgaon on Thursday, 6:00 p.m., April 27th, 2017. The Randstad Award is the largest, independent, employer branding study in the world that spans 26 countries, 3,700 organizations and surveys over 160,000 respondents. Google India was the winner last year and Microsoft was inducted into the hall of fame. Other prominent recipients of the runners up and special recognition awards include leading employer brands like Mercedes-Benz, Amazon, Sony, HP, Oracle, P&G, Samsung, Ernst & Young, Microsoft, Honda, Tata Steel and India Hotels. The Randstad Award is accorded to the “Most Attractive Employer” and will provide organizations with vital information for building their talent attraction and employee engagement strategies. The research also provides a definitive benchmark to measure the effectiveness of the organization’s ability in creating a workplace that not only attracts but retains the best talent by engaging employees. While revealing how Indian organizations are achieving a real competitive advantage through their people, the study also indicates where organizations are on their journeys to being an 'employer of choice'. The event will also feature an intensive and stimulating discussion on the importance of employee branding in an era of talent hyper-competition featuring an eminent panel of business leaders, subject matter experts and policy makers.
