Starcom Mediavest Group has appointed Sujatha Maniya as talent management head for Southeast Asia. Maniya replaces Tang Seok Hian, Talent Management Lead for SEA, who left to be a consultant.
She reports into Jeffrey Seah, Country Chair VivaKi & CEO Starcom Mediavest Group Southeast Asia.
Her responsibilities include the development of strategic HR business plans, talent management and change management.
“Human Resource as a business practice is in a powerful position to influence business success in 2016, especially as organisational changes and shifting priorities continue to increase in complexity, frequency and scope,”Maniya (pictured) said.
“Organisations need to apply several strategies to prepare for and more effectively adjust during continuous change and at the core of those strategies are the HR business partners. HRBPs who improve their skills, maintain partnerships and confidently and competently manage projects they lead, can make these changes, successful realties in their organisations.”
“Culture, employer branding and industry outreach become key priorities for HR as each company competes in the space of talent attraction and acquisition. This means that most HR, if not all, will need to sell better, seal strategic partnerships with key players in the industry, and manage talent communities,” Seah said.
