Tanfeeth, a fully-owned subsidiary of Emirates NBD, has been recognized with two leading awards at the prestigious Brandon Hall Group HCM Excellence Awards 2015, held in Orlando, USA. Among a competitive field of international peers, Tanfeeth won in the categories of ‘Reduction in Learning’ and ‘Underwriter’s Certification Program’.

Now in its 21st year, the Brandon Hall Group HCM Excellence Awards is the first of its kind in the learning industry. Attendees from across the world, ranging in size and sector, across public, private and third-sector organizations, compete for the esteemed distinctions, which are respected and valued globally. Tanfeeth’s cutting-edge processes stood out by demonstrating best practice in delivering excellence in the respective categories.

Tanfeeth was singled out by a judging panel, comprising of industry experts in HR, for its commitment to developing and implementing initiatives, which reduce the learning curve of employees and cultivate in-house skills. Adhering to this program of developing talent has had proven benefits to Tanfeeth’s overall business, including a positive impact on productivity which has enhanced revenues.

Commenting on the award, Partika Raj Malhotra Head of Learning and Development at Tanfeeth, said: “It was a fulfilling experience to be able to represent Tanfeeth at the HCM Excellence Awards 2015. Winning two Gold Awards reaffirms Tanfeeth’s commitment to delivering innovative programs, which lead the GCC in talent development.”

Suhail Bin Tarraf, CEO of Tanfeeth stated: “Tanfeeth’s success is a combination of three things: people, processes, and technologies. We invest in our talent, continue to improve upon process performance, and utilize leading-edge technology. I am very proud of our Learning and Development team, who continues to exceed industry benchmarks in quality and efficiency. This approach continues to pay off on a daily basis and provides Tanfeeth with a distinct strategic advantage across its operations in the region.”

Tanfeeth has built a reputation as a progressive organization, challenging conventional HR wisdom in the region and furthering boundaries. Established as the GCC’s first business services company to help other GCC organizations optimize their processes and services, the firm has grown rapidly and currently employs 2,000 staff across the United Arab Emirates. Hessa Al Ghurair, Tanfeeth’s Chief People Officer, stated: “This is only the beginning, these awards signal a new era in value-added day-to-day operations on every level, which fuel our business transformations and continues to ‘wow’ our customers.”

In November 2014, Tanfeeth was awarded the regional title ‘Advocacy for Best HR Practices’ by the Society for Human Resources Management. The firm uses a number of advanced techniques and tools, including data-driven analytics, to enable staff to learn and develop. This has led to empowered employees and augmented Tanfeeth’s offering to clients.
