More than 500 senior regional HR professionals and talent managers joined Asian Institute of Finance’s CEO Dr Raymond Madden at his presentation entitled “Thinking Outside the Box: The New Reality of Talent Engagement” at the HR Summit 2014 in Singapore recently. The conference is Asia’s largest congregation of human resource practitioners and was held over two days, offering numerous breakout sessions, high profile plenary speakers as well as a Masterclass by the world’s leading HR and Management guru, Professor David Ulrich.
In his presentation, Dr Madden shared the findings of AIF’s insights on Gen Y at the workplace. Realising Gen Y’s significant contribution in the region’s financial services industry, Dr Madden touched on the importance of understanding the expectations of Gen Ys, an area covered in the recent AIF’s research study. Strategies such as the ‘talent game’ and 3Es – Engage, Enrich and Empower – are some of the approach that companies can adopt to further engage and connect with the Gen Y employees. The presentation was followed by an interactive Q&A session.
Asia’s first winner of ‘The Apprentice’, Jonathan Yabut engaged in a conversation with AIF CEO, Dr Raymond Madden and Director of Communications & PR, Farah Jaafar-Crossby.
