How do you see the company changing in two years, and how do you see yourself creating that change?
We want to hire leaders and staff members who thinks about where the company is going. We don’t want to hire employees who are comfortable doing things the way they’ve always been done and with the new cloud payroll and HRIS platform where it will soon be available online for Thailand local SME business now on it’s way to being launched this coming 2018. I see us playing major roles in the Thai market for HR admin outsourcing and as a global player in ASEAN countries in the next 2 years.

How do you handle the challenges in the workplace?

There was a situation where the software development of our new product stalled. The customers didn’t exactly understand how to use the product, so where the communication was falling short, I coordinated a team which managed to get the schedule back on track. We were able to successfully troubleshoot the issues and solve the problems within a short period of time, and without completely burning out our team. I was able to do this by motivating the senior engineering team to brainstorm an innovative technological solution that would solve the customer’s issues and within a month the issue was cleared through better communications and fewer development hours on our end.

What have you invented?
Well, inventing something doesn’t mean you create a robot that can get a beer from a fridge. It could be anything. It’s more about looking to see if that person or your team have the mind-set to create something and show a desire to find fresh solutions.

What is your take on about the fast growing tech in HR industry across the globe?
Overall, HR managers and administrators continue to struggle to define and integrate the structures, processes and tools to consistently maintain good work performance across their organizations. The growth of HR payroll and HRIS tech is sure to help organisations make the small tedious tasks into something manageable. With less focus on the small jobs, management and working teams can focus more on the high priority tasks that help their businesses grow, such as marketing strategy, recruiting, training people etc. HR based technology in this industry bring true innovations that add value to their businesses, and helps make meaningful differences in the industry as a whole.
