Effective 1st February 2016, Philips Singapore has appointed Carlo Felicia as its new head of CoE rewards, APAC and Japan.
In this new role, Felicia leads Philips HealthTech’s compensation and benefits programmes, policies and processes for ASEAN Pacific & Japan.
Based in Singapore, Felicia told Human Resources he previously held a similar role for four years, with BD Singapore, as their director of total rewards, Asia Pacific.
When asked about why he decided to take on this new role, Felicia stated: “Philips is a globally recognised brand and they are re-inventing the company to be focused on health technology.”
Being new to the company, Felicia is currently focused on connecting with key stakeholders and learning as much about Philips.
Thereafter, he will be working towards ensuring that the company provides a compelling package to both potential hires as well as current staff.
“In rewards, I’m very focused on making sure Philips provides a very compelling package both to prospective hires and current employees so it is important to have very good market information, stay connected with the countries, be open-minded and innovative, over communicate our value proposition and ensure our employees are satisfied.”
