  3. 3. COVER STORY 22 www.hrdmag.com.sg RISING STARS Alvin Hadiono’s work at Citi has been “exceptional” (as his performance was officially rated), particularly over the last two years. One major project he implemented was Citi’s Leadership Culture Transformation, which involved training more than 700 senior managers and leaders on leadership standards, values chartering and cascading, respect at work and career ownership; this initiative significantly improved manager effectiveness scores. Hadiono also launched other development programs that have helped increase productivity to the extent that potentially more than 70 working hours have been saved by the top-performing project teams. His efforts have contributed to Citi Indonesia winning various industry awards, such as the Best Companies in Developing Leaders from Within and Best Corporate University awards. On top of his responsibilities as L&D head, Hadiono also serves as HR business partner for seven global functions in Citi Indonesia, and is currently working on a regional alignment initiative of professional skills training portfolio for all Citi offices across Asia-Pacific. Country learning and development head, Citi Indonesia ALVIN HADIONO For the past few years, Zen Tan has been occupied with spearheading recruitment for the opening of the largest warehouse retailers in Singapore, which has involved hiring approximately 200 staff and arranging their compensation packages and incentives. The project also led to the evaluation and fine-tuning of various internal HR policies – including employee leave provisions and other benefits for existing staff – and the alignment of these with the benefits for new staff. As an acknowledgement of his efforts, Tan was promoted to his current position in July 2016. His other recent efforts include assisting business units in gauging manpower needs by reviewing work patterns and adjusting schedules to reduce overlapping hours and increase productivity, as well as conducting exit interviews to generate quality feedback and implementing changes from that feedback in order to reduce turnover rate. Senior HR executive, Big Box Singapore ZEN TANVivian Wong started her career in HR within the hospitality sector in 2008, first as a training executive. A subsequent promotion to assistant training manager occurred within a year. Shortly after, she became part of the pre-opening team for one of three Forbes five-star hotels in Singapore, working on recruitment. Wong joined The Ritz-Carlton in 2013, and was promoted to assistant director for human resources in 2014. Following this appointment, she immediately embarked on a project to equip the HR team for cross-functional purposes and to cover a wider spectrum of duties for hotel employees. This initiative resulted in improved efficiency of the HR team in providing bespoke solutions, which led to a significant increase in employee engagement. This year, the company scored a whopping 96% in Aon Hewitt’s Employee Engagement Survey, and received the ‘Best of the Best’ employers award. Wong and her team were also included in HRD Magazine’s list of top HR teams for the year. Assistant director of HR, The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore VIVIAN WONG ENTER GEN Z By 2020, Generation Z – those born between 1990 and 1999 – will make up 20% of the workforce. It’s time for employers to start considering this cohort of workers now, as they finish up their studies and enter the workforce. Their workplace reality will be different to any previous generation’s. One report, The 2015 Future Leaders Index by Co-op in partnership with BDO, notes that these workers will operate in a truly global job market. They will enter a job market that is continuously being shaped by global working practices. Flexible working arrangements, contract-based assignments and global outsourcing will be the norm for this age cohort. 20-29_RisingStars_SUBBED.indd 22 17/11/2016 11:41:25 AM
