About Me

How would you describe your current role to a HR outsider?

Pursuing my passion to help others become better version of themselves.

What is a common misconception about the work you do?

L&D is not seen as part of supporting company achieving business objectives.

How did you get started in your HR career?

I started as Finance in FMCG company. As HR, I have experience as both HR consultant and working as HR in corporate so when I need to engage external vendor, I have been in both sides of the fence.

Describe the most impactful HR project you've personally worked on.

Establish the foundation of a structured learning program in a company as my legacy. It is meaningful because I started from zero and the program that I created was also felt by the employees that they know they have career in the company and that the company is caring about their development. We started with small steps, plan the program, get the buy in and sponsor, then full focus on the excellence execution.

What is one HR/future of work trend or change you're not convinced will work for SEA startups?

Full Working From Home Arrangement. I think people need to embrace that they need to get back to work in order to have better collaboration, at least they need to embrace Hybrid Work Arrangement.

What is one HR/future of work trend or change that you hope to see more of at SEA startups?

Leveraging AI in the HR process to make work more effective and efficient.

What is your favourite HR resource that you would recommend to this community?

Simon Sinek books and Multipliers book.
