As we get ready to kickstart a successful year together, we at Human Resources present to you our top Q&A sessions with HR leaders from 2017.
In this special edition of our HR Bulletin, we have put together some of this year's most-read interviews with HR directors from Starbucks, Malaysia Airlines, PwC and more.
To check out the insights they’ve shared with us, click on the links below:
1. Q&A with Jeff Lam, talent development director, Starbucks
In the long run, you can’t have the company strategy change faster than the growth of its people.
2. Q&A: Janet Man, vice president, global talent management, Schneider Electric
Marketing techniques and methodologies such as segmentation, identifying value propositions and creating targeted messages are extremely relevant to our work.
3. Q&A with Stephanie Nash, chief people officer at RedMart
We are somewhat flexible in terms of how people work and where people work. One of the things that we value is ‘what works for you can work for us too’.
4. Q&A: Evangeline Chua, chief people officer, GovTech
Whoever we hire – regardless of the tenure – we need to think about how to enrich their experience.
5. Q&A with Geraldine Fraser, HR director, FrieslandCampina Asia
Resourcing is always the murkiest area to determine clear accountabilities in talent management, and that is where there can be friction.
6. Q&A: Salika Suksuwan, executive director, human capital, PwC Malaysia
As many leading employers are now on social media, it’s no longer a novelty and we must continue to think of ways to differentiate ourselves.
7. Q&A: Jarrod Patterson, HR director of South Asia, and HR business partner for operations and purchasing, Asia Pacific, Henkel
Having diversity and inclusion programmes reinforces that the end goal is still to hire the best person.
8. Q&A with Sara Roberts and Douglas Hamer, Citi Asia Pacific
HR isn’t an adjunct function that reacts to the business – we sit at the top table with our business, whether that’s globally, regionally or locally…
9. Q&A: Aditi Madhok-Naarden, APAC HR director, The Body Shop
In my experience, if you take the time and effort to recruit the best fit for a role, everything will flow from there – retention, engagement and performance.
10. Q&A: Manish Verma, APAC regional leader, global HR solutions, Cargill
The experience and the thrill of reshaping our HR practice is invaluable. It starts and ends with talent, culture and enabling our business to win.
