THE HR AGENDA: In the newest episode of Chief of Staff Asia's panel discussion series, host Paul Howell speaks candidly with HR stalwart Carmen Wee.
The discussion looks first at the status of women in leadership positions, both globally and across the Southeast Asia region. While this is certainly improving, the rate of movement towards parity between the sexes in identified leadership positions has become painfully slow, and Wee, who now acts as a board director across a number of technology startups, shares how and why HR leaders can help build momentum.
The episode also considers the prevalence and impact of overworking cultures — where staff are expected to spend 50 hours or more at work every week — across the region.
Finally, Technology Editor Vandana Nanwani shares some insight on the new Horizon Rooms communication tool, by Meta, which owns both Facebook and Instagram.
