  • Data Security The Data Dilemma

    Safeguarding employee privacy is a key concern in today’s digital economy.

    By Marta Chmielowicz

    With the digital economy in full swing, HR leaders are embracing technologies that capture employee data and deliver insights that can be interpreted to better attract, retain, and grow talent. But the flood of numbers pouring in from talent management platforms across the organization carries risk as well as reward.

  • Relocation Data Mobility Metrics That Matter

    Harnessing the power of data is leading to better decision-making and improved employee satisfaction to boot.

    By Debbie Bolla

    Global mobility has traditionally been a costly investment for organizations. In fact, according to Urban Bound, it costs more than $97,100 to relocate current employees who are homeowners and nearly $73,000 to relocate new hires who own homes. But in a tight labor market where talent is often a key differentiator, can organizations put a price on having the right person in the right role at the right time? That’s a tough question to answer, but luckily data is easing the cost implications of relocation while delivering additional insight into employee satisfaction, productivity, and retention.

    Progress may be slow, but organisations are finding success with programmes that promote gender inclusion.

    By Michael Switow

    When Aliza Knox, a tech industry veteran with a track record of growing global brands in Asia-Pacific, applied for a job with the content delivery network Cloudflare, she did her homework. She went to the company’s website and came across a day-long forum it had sponsored. What struck her was that almost every discussion had at least one woman on the panel. There was even a session with two female professionals and no men—a rarity in an industry that is 80 per cent male.

    By Michael Switow

    Confused about the state of the India’s economy? The planet’s largest democracy is the fastest-growing major economy, with 2019-2020 fiscal year GDP growth expected to clock in between 6.8 and 7.3 per cent. But growth is starting to slow with government deficits rising and unemployment reportedly running at 6.1 per cent, a 45-year high (although Delhi has disavowed the statistic).

  • Entrepreneurial Talent Entrepreneurial Spirit

    Fostering innovation and growth comes down to one thing: culture.

    By Michael Switow

    Guest lecturers in a Singapore classroom—it doesn’t matter if it’s a secondary school or tertiary institution, a large assembly or a small group—will find that hands are often slow to rise when it’s time to ask questions. The same is true in Hong Kong and other parts of Asia.
