Southeast Asia HR Summit 2015

The event at a glance

The Annual Southeast Asia HR Summit is the premium forum that brings together two key parties to any project; the decision-makers and solution providers.
Organised by marcus evans earlier this month in Malaysia, the summit gathered 100 Regional HR leaders, consultants and solution providers in an intimate environment for a focused discussion of key new drivers shaping corporate priorities and HR strategies.
As an invitation only event that takes place behind closed doors, the summit offers a streamlined agenda consisting of compelling presentations, roundtable discussions, interactive forums and business meetings that provokes creativity leaving attendees with nothing but superior knowledge and practical insights after the two-day event.

Key Highlights; The OMG Factor!

With an impressive speaker line-up of 20 Regional HR thought leaders sharing their best practices and day-to-day experiences on efficient ways of maximising employee performance, methods to equip top talent with global competencies, successful ways of attracting and retaining top professionals, and developing versatile leaders, there was not a dull session throughout the summit.

Key highlights from the summit were most definitely presentations from John Nolan, SVP HR, Global Markets, Unilever; Grace Wong, VP & Regional Head of HR, SEA & Oceania, Samsung Asia; Gaurav Sharma, HR Director, Bottling Investment Group, Singapore, Malaysia, & Brunei, Coca-Cola Singapore Beverages; Mei-lynn Chan, Head, Group Organizational Development, and HC Group Technology, Group Human Capital, Maybank; and Tak Ming Lai, Director, Group HR & Admin, Gamuda Berhad.

As there are two important components to the summit, besides compelling presentations, the one-to-one business meetings were also a hit among attendees as HR leaders had the exclusive opportunity to discuss industry challenges with renowned solution providers.

These business meetings were a win-win scenario as solution providers also had the opportunity to build new relationships directly with top decision makers and develop rapport face-to-face all in one exclusive time and place.

There will be a big shift in talent acquisition strategies in Asia over the upcoming year, as organisations try to better target their offering, in order to cater to the needs of both active and passive candidates.

Presentations touching on strengthening one’s position as an employer of choice by utilising social media and its potential as an effective recruiting engagement tool were well received by attendees.
Embracing talent analytics and big data to define the links between people practices and productivity was also acknowledged and agreed as a method to improve operational performance.
