Key challenges in APAC - Maggie Zhang of AIG shares her thoughts on mobility, talent development and technology
The recipient of an EMMA in 2017 - the prestigious award for an Outstanding Contribution to Global Mobility, Maggie will be speaking at our forthcoming APAC Summit in Singapore. Here's a small taster of what she will be sharing with delegates
As International Chief HR Officer at finance and insurance giant, AIG Maggie Zhang is responsible for the corporation's HR policies across the globe.
As the Summit Chair, I am particularly looking forward to hearing all about STRIDE, AIG's innovative talent development program in her Mobility Masterclass, but Maggie will also be taking part in our closing panel discussion on technology and AI and its impact on mobility and the world of work itself.
In a previous article, I highlighted some of the key themes of our Summit and outlined some of the points and best practice that Maggie and Miqi Zhu, Talent Manager at AIG will be sharing with attendees at their Mobility Masterclass.
In anticipation of both sessions at FEM's APAC Global Mobility Summit in Singapore, I asked Maggie a few brief questions to find out what she is looking forward to discussing and sharing when we hear from her at Hotel Fort Canning on 5th September:
How do you think mobility is changing in the APAC region?
Maggie Zhang (MZ):
Companies are seeking more cost effective, more flexible ways in mobility to support employee development and business growth.
What do you think are the three greatest challenges facing Global Mobility professionals there today?
I currently see the need for forward-looking perspectives, pro-active problem solving ability and business acumen.
What do you hope that delegates will take away from your Mobility Masterclass?
How we can leverage mobility capacity to support talent development and sustainable business growth.
You are also taking part in the closing discussion about technology, AI and the world of work: The Future Workplace, AI technology evolution and the impact on global mobility. What sparks your interest in this?
Digital platforms and technology development will shape HR resource management hugely. It’s happening already, HR professionals need to be more forward-looking and agile to cope with the changes and lead the way as change agents to support business growth.
