27 October 2014, SingaporeHuman Resources, the organiser of Singapore’s premier recruitment strategy conference, Recruitment Interactive 2014, is delighted to announce that Tho Lye Sam, senior director HR APAC at global retail holding company Fast Retailing, has joined the event’s panel of expert speakers.

I am definitely interested to hear Tho share her insights into diversity and how their workplace culture, despite the huge disparities in location, can remain aligned to the overarching business objectives.”
