The last decade has seen an unprecedented shift in economic focus from the West to the East. To keep in step, the Human Resources function has also turned its attention to Asia, trying to accomplish the twin objectives of accelerating functional maturity and adapting people practices to suit regional requirements. Western HR practices in most Asia-based organisations are slowly but surely giving way to people solutions developed in Asia.
The Asian Human Capital Award (AHCA), jointly organised by the Singapore Ministry of Manpower (MOM) and the Human Capital eadership Institute (HCLI), has identified and celebrated successful people practices in Asia for the past five years. These are compelling stories of innovative solutions developed to address HR challenges that organisations face in Asia. Human Capital Insights is a compilation of 24 such stories woven into five themes — Employee Engagement, Talent Management, Learning & Development, HR Technology, and HR-Business Partnership.
This book is an attempt by HCLI to value-add to the HR ecosystem in Asia and facilitate collective learning. We hope that the book will offer insights to global HR leaders who wish to know more about the human capital landscape in this vibrant part of the world.
