As Asia’s importance on the world stage continues to grow, organisations have to look in every place they can for the best available talent. But what’s the most effective way to retain and develop the best once you find them?
“Making talent management work for you globally is a challenge, but even more so in Asia with a number of emerging growth markets to resource for,” says Shahrukh Marfatia, vice president of HR global commercial for Shell Eastern Petroleum.
“How we resource the business, develop people and best talent and most importantly, retain our people – particularly our key talent and technical staff – is a huge competitive advantage.”
With this in mind, Marfatia adds each company needs to work out what is the best strategy for their business and culture, as there is no one-size-fits-all talent management framework.
“There are no magic markers… serious refocus and rethink on managing talent in Asia is business critical if organisations are serious about leveraging the growth opportunities that still exist in many key markets across Asia.”
To share more of his knowledge and experience, Marfatia will speak at Talent Management 2014 on how Shell’s successful and sustainable talent management model has become a real competitive advantage for the organisation.
Talent Management 2014 will take place on March 17-19 at The InterContinental Hotel in Singapore.
