Welcome to the inaugural issue of HRO Today APAC! Our goal is to provideÂ you the latest trends in human capital management for the APAC region.Â And how are we going to do this?
Let me introduce you to our Editor-at-Large, Michael Switow.
Switow is a seasoned journalist, broadcaster, and author. He made his start inÂ Asia writing for the Associated Press in Manila, then as a radio and financialÂ journalist in Hong Kong, where he covered the cityâs return to China. SwitowÂ rode the Internet bubble to Singapore, from where he has written extensivelyÂ over the past two decades on economic, political, and organisational issuesÂ that affect every aspect of human resources management.
Switow is going to offer our readers a very valuable local perspective that theÂ magazine has been lacking in the past. In just this issue alone, Switow touchesÂ on trends having a major impact in APAC: recruiting approaches that workÂ Chinaâs dynamic market; managing talent through lateral moves; and Asiaâs top cities for mobility and millennials.
HRO Today APAC will continue to provide readers with our industry-leadingÂ Bakerâs Dozen rankings. Click here to find out this yearâs top mobility service providers.
This move to a new format was largely based on feedback from youâsoÂ please let us know what you think!
