This is where I feel at home and at my best
Vice President, Talent Management
Talent and Organisational Development Team
I am Jane. I am the Vice President of Talent Management within the Talent and Organisational Development Team of UOB Thailand.
I have been with UOB Thailand almost five years now.
I started my career as an HR Business Partner, where I was involved in HR end-to-end processes.
When the vacancy in Talent Management came up, my manager saw that I have the transferrable skills essential for this new role, and believed that I was ready for a new challenge.
UOB is a place that encourages internal mobility, where employees can expand their capabilities and breadth of their professional experiences.
My managers here are my mentors who truly care about how I am doing.
There’s an open-door policy, so anyone can easily pop by their managers’ desks to discuss their progress or to ask for help.
UOB puts a lot of thought into helping employees better manage our work and our life outside of it.
For example, there’s the Flexi2 programme that allows all full-time employees to request 2 hours’ paid time-off every month to attend to personal matters.
This gives me a lot more time to focus on other important things beside work, like getting home in time to have dinner with my parents, or to go to a yoga class.
The culture at UOB is very family-like.
We lend our support in whatever ways we can, whether it’s a work or personal matter.
There’s a particular incident that really touched me.
When I was on my short-term assignment at UOB Singapore, my manager took the initiative to call my parents to check on them.
I only found out about this later from my father.
UOB is a very caring organisation.
It is a place where I feel a strong sense of belonging, and where I know that I can be at my best, whether as a professional or as a person.
