The 2013 Global HR Conference, held on September 9-11, saw a total of 33 colleagues from different locations taking part in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Hosted at EGV, the three-day conference, themed "Work Smart Within and Beyond HR", is tailored towards shared learning and proffering innovative and practical solutions to the current and emerging issues, deepening knowledge of HR practitioners and uplifting HR practices across the Group.

Edgar Tung, Managing Director of Group HR & Organizational Development, kicked off with welcoming remarks, where he pointed out human capital as the number one challenge rated by CEOs globally and called for HR’s collective focus on key HR processes and initiatives to address the career cycle.

Seeing that workplace ethics as one of our key corporate values, the conference was set off with an ethics training workshop, aiming to increase the awareness of ethical issues and introduce approaches when handling problems that are not simply black and white.

In addition to an array of discussions and activities, speakers from different operations shared a wealth of insights on various topics. Kent Teh, Director of Garment Manufacturing (Malaysia & Vietnam Operations) and Mao Zhi Gang, General Manager of EGV shared with the audience the latest development at EHV as well as the people challenges and the retention strategies that have been successfully implemented in Vietnam.

Bessie Chong, Associate Director of Group Training & Talent Management, also underscored the importance of Esquel University in the road of developing leadership pipeline for sustainable business development. Additionally, Dodie Hung, Associate Director of Corporate Communications, encouraged HR professionals to open up to social tools and get to understand what our employees think about in order to navigate a noisy digital environment.

The participants also had a site visit at Intel Corporation, getting first-hand knowledge on its operations, advanced technology and people initiatives as well as Cu Chi Tunnel, being inspired from the prolonged resistance war and creative and persistent character of the Vietnamese people.

The parallel discussion sessions also sparked constructive discussions and debates, where participants were encouraged to take a creative and comprehensive view of the current and emerging HR challenges facing different operations and to come up with a systematic approach to addressing the problems.

In her closing remarks, Vice Chairman Tessie Yang praised EGV for its success in creating a lean culture which leads to efficiency improvement and high employee retention rate. She also emphasized the importance of engaging and empowering young talents to help build a sustainable and strong human capital.
