The pandemic has become the accelerator for one of the greatest workplace transformations of our lifetime: how we attract and hire talent, how we work, where we work, how is our work going to be measured, how do we communicate and manage teams, how do we price our jobs and reward employees…all these aspects have been impacted. From business models to people strategy, things are going to be radically different post this crisis.
Not surprisingly, organizations have adopted technology in an accelerated fashion during the pandemic, in order to transform their workplace to become more agile & digital. A much-needed armor to future-proof themselves!
In my discussion with Juancho Jerusalem, who recently joined Darwinbox as the Vice President & Head of APJ Expansion, he speaks about the accelerated digital adoption in Singapore and the digital divide between SMEs and large organisations.
(Juancho comes with 20+ years of extensive cross-border management experience across the APAC region. He’s an ex-Regional VP at Salesforce for the Marketing Cloud business and ex-Regional Director for Oracle’s Applications business and later on Customer eXperience (CX) business. Throughout his career he has handled roles of varying complexity and difficulty at MNCs, including Citrix. Juancho takes pride in working with different organizations, from start-ups to large enterprises. His belief that technology is the best medium for change and HRTech should not be hard to use, particularly in a work-from-anywhere world, is what drives him to enable HR transformation. At Darwinbox, he will spearhead customer success across the company’s base of HRMS users, growth and expansion across APJ, and culture creation for attracting best talent and partners.)
Here’s the excerpts from the Q&A session that I had with Juancho recently.
