The HR Agnda

Originally written in English

     More than 200 businesses and HR leaders from approximately 40 countries flocked to the Global HR Excellence Conference last Oct. 29-31, 2012, at the Hilton Kuala Lumpur Hotel in Malaysia. Organized by marcusevans and endorsed by The Japan HR Society (JHRS), the conference was attended by leading international companies such as Google, Facebook, UBS, DHL, Procter & Gamble, DELL and other progressive organizations. HR leaders and practitioners from these organizations delivered expert presentations, offered case studies and lead highly interactive panel discussions (please see the center photo spread in this issue).

     The first two days of the Conference included a choice of three streams:

  • Stream one: Talent and Capability Development
  • Steam two: HR Transformation
  • Stream three: Performance and Rewards

Stream one: Talent and Capability Development

     JHRS Chief Community Officer, Jun Kabigting, MBA/MS/ HRMP, participated under Stream One: Talent and Capability Development, with a presentation entitled: “Cracking the Talent Market: A Case Study on Why Japan is the Hardest Country in which to Recruit Talent and How you can Win the War for Talent in Japan.”Kabigting gave practical strategies to find, attract, and retain top talent for Japan-based organizations.

Steam two: HR Transformation

     Cheryl Ann Wong, Past Immediate HR Director of British American Tobacco, Malaysia, presented “Transforming the Business Through Conscious Leadership" under Stream Two: HR Transformation. She emphasized how conscious leadership plays a key role in transforming business for organizations, as well as the role of the HR leader in building leadership bench strength.

Stream three: Performance and Rewards

     In this stream, Lim Chee Gay, the VP for Human Resources at T-Systems, Malaysia, delivered a presentation titled, “Structuring an Attractive Compensation and Benefits Package to Appeal to Gen X, Y, and Z while Retaining the Older Generation.” Participants learned the art of creating more flexible packages through a combination of both monetary and non-monetary perks and benefits. Gay also discussed how to design a bonus model in alignment with the organization’s objectives.

     The third day was a full-day Leadership and Change Management Course led by world-renowned management consultant and author Ric Willmot of the Executive Wisdom Consulting Group. The course, founded on change management principles, provided participants with new leadership strategies to survive and thrive in the current economic climate.

     In today’s environment, the role of HR is evolving from its customary administrative role to that of a more strategic business partner or even a business leader. The next generation of HR professionals must step up a notch or two from their traditional role by acquiring more business knowledge, aligning and supporting the business strategy, and instituting global HR standards and practices to help their organizations achieve high performance and become leaders in their respective industries.




  • 第1分科会:人材と能力開発
  • 第2分科会:HRの変容
  • 第3分科会:パフォーマンスと報酬








     今日の経営環境におけるHRの役割は、従来の事務処理的役割から、より戦略的なビジネスパートナーとして、更にはビジネスリーダ ーとしての役割に進化してきている。HR専門の新世代たちは、自分たちの企業がハイパフォーマンスを達成し、それぞれの業界でリーダーとなるのを支援するために、経営知識を身につけ、また経営戦略に歩調を合わせ支援し、グローバルなHR標準や実践を提起することで、従来の役割から1段階、2段階と、レベル・アップを図らなければならないのだ。
