Starcom has announced the first batch of graduates from a training programme launched last year called SMG University.

SMG University was launched in September last year with the aim of going back to basics of understanding the consumer where the work is more important downstream than upstream making the process of insight and discovery more robust.

Modules covered are digital planning, screen neutral planning, programmatic, activation and measurement.

SMG University is a comprehensive training program offered to all its employees that marries theoretical, interactive practice. The program strengthens SMG’s culture of creating value – accumulating knowledge, sharing learnings and insights, elevating the collective to be the best partner for marketers.  The program progresses from integrated fundamental modules to intermediate and advance certifications.

SMG’s CEO Leah Besa-Jimenez said, “Our company’s greatest asset is its people, they are the driving force of our business.  Investing in them and giving them the proper tools to do the best job possible in the rapidly changing landscape, is integral to their success and of the company.

Starcom Mediavest Group names talent management lead for SEA

sujatha-e1452582890923-700x420A big welcome to Sujatha!

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.
