That brings HRTI2015 to a close. Thanks to everyone who spoke, attended and supported the event! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!

The second panel of the day features HR heads from Turner Broadcasting Asia Pacfic,  Adidas Group, Galaxy Entertainment Group and Commonwealth Bank Australia share on leveraging  social media and video.

“Talent acquisition is about finding the best we don;t want to snoop people’s facebook but social media is a useful tool to identifying talent,”  Paul Hotchan assistant vice president human resources Galaxy Entertainment Group said.

He added that social media is only a tool.  “At the end of the day companies are recruiting a person, a fancy recruitment advertisement will not get the job done, companies need to give candidates great experience,” said Hotchan.


Horace Chow general manager of Microsoft Hong Kong shares how HR can play a strategic role in business performance by unlocking people potential. 

“Work is 24/7. More and more people are working remotely, as long as the job is done, they do not have to work nine to six,” he said.



Our first panel has experts from Telstra International, Johnson Electric, Bank of America Merrill Lynch and AIA Group sharing about engaging employees using HR tech.

“Simplicity is cost efficient – and from that perspective, there’s a lot more thrust for corporates to have a centralised decision making process and a centralised legal team,” says Naveen Kumar, senior vice president at human resources, Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
