HRTV: Reaching out regionally

leave a comment »

Singapore – As more companies choose to set up their regional headquarters in Singapore, managers have to keep communication flowing smoothly between employees based in different offices.

Andrew Tay, president for Zebra Technologies in Asia Pacific, advised managers with regional responsibilities to make a constant effort to connect with their team members who are based in different locations. He said this can be done through weekly calls and emails.

Tay said staying in touch regularly will help leaders understand what’s happening in a particular office despite not being there physically. Tay added that managers have to be aware of the different work practices and cultures in different countries, and tailor their leadership style to address the local needs and growth opportunities.

But communication aside, companies have to first find the right talent on top of creating “a proper vision and business strategy for the organisation”. Tay said, “You can have the best plan in the whole world, but if you don’t have the best people to execute it, it will just remain as a plan.”
