Head of HR, APAC, NetApp
With 20 years of leadership experience, CY Yau is perfectly placed to promote NetApp’s twin values of corporate culture and innovation. HR initiatives such as Coffee Chat provide one-on-one dialogue between staff and senior leadership, encouraging employees to ask questions and break through APAC’s ‘silent culture’. The art of listening is key to NetApp’s success. Lau uses open-door policies to stimulate conversation between staff and leaders, and then adjusts his HR strategies as necessary to suit both local and regional needs.
